Transportation Protocol – Updated

NEW TIMES!  SBISD had over twenty bell schedules in existence which made bus transportation very difficult. There will now only be TWO elementary bell schedules district wide. We selected a start time of 7:50 (instead of 7:20).

Our first bell dismissing students from the gym and the cafeteria will be at 7:45.  Our second bell marking your student tardy will be at 7:50.  BHE TV begins at 7:50.  Plan ahead!

Carpool will be open from 7:20 to 7:45. Gates will be locked (even on rainy days) promptly at 7:45. ALL late students (carpool, walkers, bikers, etc.) will have to be signed in by a parent at the front window after 7:50. This is a MAJOR CHANGE. Please plan ahead – you will need to be in the carpool line by 7:25 or your child will be late. Classroom instruction begins promptly at 7:50 am. Thank you for supporting us in getting EVERY CHILD to class ON TIME!!

Click the link below for a map showing how to get from the front of the school (main entrance) to the back of the school (carpool).

Are you receiving messages through Messenger?

BHE Friends and Families,

Messenger is the quickest way for Bunker Hill to reach ALL families with updates or important news. Families need to update their Skyward information each year and anytime there is a change. You won’t want to miss out on learning what’s going on at Bunker Hill! Signed Up but not receiving them?

1. Please make sure that you check your spam folders to see if my messages may have accidentally gone into the wrong folder or that you may have opted out on accident.

2. Update your information: The only way to make sure you are receiving communications through Messenger is to make sure your Skyward information is up to date. You can update your information as a returning family at this link: https://www.springbranchisd.com/studentsfamilies/back-to-school/registration
