Dear BESD Families, It is very important that you take a few minutes to complete the Federal Free and Reduced Lunch Application. You can select/print the letter and application in either English or Spanish. Please bring the completed form to your school Open House or send with your child on the first day. This form is your pathway to qualify for a free lunch. This is no longer automatic like it has been the last two years. English Link: Spanish Link:

In Person Registration Reminder: Wednesday, July 27th is the last opportunity to register in the evening. We will be at Liberty Intermediate School from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm. This is for students at all of our schools. Families of all new students need to register in person because you need to prove residency. If you are a family with returning students and you did not receive a letter in the mail (mailed on June 10th) with a code to register, you also must come to the in person registration to prove residency. Any student that is not registered will not be able to see room assignments or schedules in Skyward when they become available. You also run the risk of being shifted to another school due to class size challenges. Thanks!
