  • BAS 2nd Grade Chorus registration is now open!

    Students participating in chorus will eat during the first half of the lunch hour (11:35 AM - 12:05 PM) and rehearse during the second half of the lunch hour (12:05 - 12:35 PM). Rehearsals will take place once per week (two classes at a time) during the 30-minute recess block (either Monday or Thursday). Closer to the concert (late October-November), all four classes will combine to rehearse together twice per week during the 30-minute recess block.

    In order to register your child for chorus, please click here.

    DROP OFF PROCEDURES:

     

    ALBANY AVE. DROP OFF ( 1C, 1F , 2K, 2LA, 2M 2O)

    • A drop off zone has been created so that parents can pull up and let their child out of the car quickly and safely, WITHOUT PARKING.  A BAS staff member will be at the door at 8:20 AM, monitoring students as they enter the building.  There will be no parking in the coned drop off zone.  
    • If you would like to walk your child to the door, please find parking outside the drop off zone.  I suggest parking on the side streets.
    • The Albany Street doors (side door Grade 1 and backdoor Grade 2) will remain open from 8:20-8:25 AM.  Any child arriving after 8:25 AM must enter through the main entrance.
    • After dropping off your child, it is highly recommended that cars continue on Albany Ave., make a left onto Roselle Ave., and a left onto Cherrywood Ave.  This route will lead right back to Bloomingdale Ave.  We hope that this will reduce the safety hazard of people doing K-turns and U-turns during drop off.   ***

    PARKING LOT DROP OFF (KAMZ, KAMBA, FDK and KPMZ)

    • Kindergarten students will line up at the parking lot entrance.  The doors will be open from 8:20-8:25 AM and 12:00 PM. Any child arriving after 8:25 AM/12:00 PM must enter through the main entrance. 
    • When parking, please park on Bloomingdale Ave. or utilize the parking spaces behind the school.  The spaces alongside the school are reserved for teachers/staff.   

    BLOOMINGDALE AVE. FRONT DOOR DROP OFF (1K, 1T)

    • 1K and 1T students will line up at the front door entrance.  The doors will be open from 8:20-8:25 AM. Any child arriving after 8:25 AM must enter through the main entrance.
    • When parking, please park on Bloomingdale Ave. or utilize the parking spaces behind the school.  The spaces alongside the school are reserved for teachers/staff.   

    *Please do not leave your child unattended prior to 8:20 AM/12:00 PM.
