Dear Parents/Guardians and Students of Barnstable Intermediate School (BIS):    

I hope you are enjoying your summer and getting excited about your new school year at Barnstable Intermediate School. The school year officially begins on Tuesday, September 2, 2014.   In this letter we have included information that will make the start of your school year go more smoothly. We encourage you to attend the evening orientation on August 27, 2014 described below for more details about the beginning of the year.  You will find important school information on the reverse side of this letter and on the second and third sheets in this packet which include:

(Please see BIS NEWS tab above for copy of the documents) 

           School start times

           Team assignments, teachers and recommended (not mandatory) school supplies

           Drop off/pick up traffic patterns

           Open House dates

           Intramural Sports (run by Barnstable Recreation) and Clubs

Please be aware that during the first week of school students will be bringing home additional school information, forms, and the student handbook for your review and signature. We would appreciate your discussion of the student handbook with your child and your active support of our mission and policies. 

On Wednesday, August 27, please join us for a Team Night orientation evening for parents and students at BIS. We will host Grade 6 families from 5:30 – 6:45 p.m. and Grade 7 from 7:15 – 8:30 p.m. These times are grade specific, as students will meet with their grade level teams and teachers for a portion of the evening in classrooms, while parents attend an informational meeting with administrators. The last half hour of the program is a social time back in the cafeteria for staff and families to get to know each other. The program will begin in the main lobby.

(NOTE: Grade 7 families are asked to arrive no earlier than 7 p.m. to allow Grade 6 families time to exit the school grounds.)

It is with great enthusiasm that we welcome you back to school. We look forward to visiting with you on Wednesday, August 27 at our Orientation and to sharing an exciting year of learning at BIS.
