From the Principal...
Happy Friday Bluff Creek Families!
It is hard to believe that we are entering the last week of September! These first three weeks of school have been filled with students adjusting to the "new normal" that comes with the challenges of COVID-19.

Managing Virtual Learning Stress

As schools across the country are conducting schoolwork remotely, many children are forced to deal with what some call "Zoom fatigue." read more. 

October is National Bullying Prevention Month. Our school will be celebrating Unity Day on October 21st. This day focuses on our school community coming together to celebrate kindness, acceptance, and inclusion. We will be encouraging students to wear the color orange. If you are interested in purchasing an official Unity Day t-shirt, please go to this link.


As our students start up the school year and are beginning to use their Chromebooks at home, here are some videos and links that might be helpful to you as your child is navigating the different technology tools they will be using.

Bus Routes Posted on Portal 
Students who did not opt out of busing have been assigned a bus route stop. Final routes are now posted on  Campus Portal. When logging in, the Portal opens to the Message Center; click "Today" on the left side of the screen. Next, choose a student name in the upper right corner of the screen. Then choose the "Bus Information" tab below the child's name. This is a screenshot of what you will see in Portal.  NOTE: Route changes will only be allowed two times/month (the 15th and the last day of the month). The first route change requests won't be considered until Sept. 30, allowing busing and the school year to begin. Parents can make route change requests using the Bus Stop Change Request Form .

BusBus Information is also on Campus Portal this summer for 2020-21 school year
Our school hours are now

Each year our school needs to make parents aware of the option to exclude directory information about their child from being provided to the public. Directory information is considered public information and includes- information about students in official school publications including but not limited to- the yearbook, the student newspaper, graduation programs, honor roll or other recognition programs, sports programs and drama playbills. It may include photos or videos of students engaged in academic, non-academic or co-curricular activities. If you are interested in excluding your child's directory information, a form is available through the main office at Bluff Creek.

 The PTO has a new website with lots of new information about all the great BCE programs that the PTO supports, details on volunteering opportunities and what to expect, what the funds raised have supported, and more! Check it out by clicking here!
