Parents Please Read
Parents please click the link below to learn about School Messenger and SMS text message notifications. This is another way we can contact you about Severe Weather. Click Here.
Safety is our number one priority when it comes to our children. Please be careful when you are arriving and leaving Bear Creek. Just a reminder...There is no crosswalk at Allen Drive. DO NOT CROSS at Allen. We have had several close calls with children trying to cross there. The children are hard to see with all of the traffic. We ask that you walk to the crosswalks at Driskill and Aurora where we have crossing guards. We also ask that when leaving the school please turn right only onto Bear Creek Drive, this speeds the process of dismissal and is safer for the crosswalk guards.
Campus Visiting Procedures
Parents starting next week, September 3, the district is implementing a new visitor sign in procedure. To read click
here. At Bear Creek all parents are to sign in the office to escort their students to the classrooms, go to the cafeteria, parent conference or volunteering. On your first visit we will need to scan your drivers license one time only for identification. On your next visit we will ask your name and print your name badge.
Volunteer Background Check
If you want to volunteer at Bear Creek please complete your background check now. If you want to be considered as a chaperone for school field trips your name must be cleared before consideration.
