  • Student IDs

    Each student at BCMS is required to have a student ID card.  This card is not only useful for purposes of identification, but can also be used as a debit card for purchases made in the cafeteria.  Students may obtain this card from the Saint Shop locations during the same hours and schedule listed on the Saint Shop webpage.  Current students may continue to use the 20/21 cards.  Updated photos for the cards may be taken upon request for a $5 fee after school day pictures have been returned.  Note:  While cafeteria workers will try to inform students when the balance on the ID card falls below $15.00, it is the responsibility of each student/parent to make certain that adequate funds are credited to the card for all necessary purchases.  Students may not "charge" food or other items.
  • Summer Assignments

    Be sure to check out the summer assignments page.
  • Traffic Issues

    Ensuring the safety of our students as they enter and exit the campus each day is a high priority for us at BCMS.  Information regarding morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up will be given at the parent information meeting on Registration Day.  When pick-up of multiple students is necessary, students should report to the pick-up zone of the youngest sibling.
  • Code of Conduct

    As we enter a new school year, please be reminded that incidents of inappropriate behavior as defined in the Student Code of Conduct are addressed whether on or off-campus.  Parents and students are encouraged to thoroughly read the policy as presented in the Parent/Student Handbook.
  • Dress Code

    Please remember that our students are expected to dress appropriately for outdoor sporting events as well as school-day activities.  Our expectation in this regard is similar to our in-school policy:  modesty and appropriateness. 

    For example, mid-thigh shorts are acceptable for football games, but "short-shorts" are not.  Bare midriffs, halter-tops, etc., are never acceptable.  Students are reminded that they represent BCMS both at school and in attendance at school-sponsored events.  The 2021-22 Dress Code is available in the Downloads Section.
