Wrapping Up The School Year and Looking Ahead!

Thank you for your patience as we continue to roll out plans that look different then a typical school year. We are so grateful for the committees working hard on the challenges they have faced this spring.

*YEARBOOKS – Being nonessential, the yearbook publisher was shut down this spring. The yearbook committee will receive the orders in late July. They will be working and communicate a plan for distribution by the time they arrive. Please stay tuned on how to pick up your yearbooks later this summer.

*SPIRIT- Most years spirit pre-sales are up and running in May. With all the uncertainties we have faced these past few months, spirit has been working hard to create a new plan for the 2020-2021 school year. We are extremely excited about the changes, and we hope you will be too once they are officially announced. Please stay tuned this summer with special blasts pertaining on ordering spirit wear.

*2020-2021 SCHOOL YEAR – Please refer back to our website later this summer for updates and PTA calendar news.

I hope you and your family have a wonderful, safe and healthy summer. I look forward to serving our PTA as President for the 2020-2021 school year.

Many thanks,
Karen Teegarden
2020-2021 PTA President

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.
