Frequently Asked Questions:
Q:How does drop off & pick up work at BES?
Parents of car riders will remain in cars the entire time of drop-off and pick-up. They will enter the drive off of Leavenworth Road on the far East entrance next to the Special Education Center.
Drop-Off: follow the flow of traffic in one lane until you reach the front of the school building where there is a sidewalk. At 8:45am there are teachers that will open car doors to let out children safely. If you drop off before, children will need to be able to let themselves out on their own. When exiting, the West lane is for turning westbound onto Leavenworth Road; while the East lane is for turning to go eastbound on Leavenworth Road.
Pick-Up: follow the flow of traffic in two lanes. Please have your laminated name plate with your child’s name displayed for quicker pick-up. Parents will pull up to a teacher holding a number outside the main front doors of the school. Your child will then walk out to the teacher with the corresponding number. The teacher will help your child enter the vehicle. When exiting, the West lane is for turning westbound onto Leavenworth Road; while the East lane is for turning to go eastbound on Leavenworth Road.

Q: When should I arrive for the class party?
A: We recommend coming early, 20-30 minutes. You will have to wait patiently and quietly until the party begins but there's a high chance if arriving 10 minutes prior you will need to walk quite a bit due to lack of parking places. As well, you will need to check in at the office once you arrive.
