The BMS Foundation has won a $62,700 matching grant from the Knox County Government for facilities improvements! The focus of this money will be on new seating and other upgrades in the auditorium. Be on the look out for more information as we are now tasked with raising the matching amount. We are thrilled to partner with our amazing parents and community partners to continue to improve the facilities for all our students and community!

Morning Drop-Off: Busses and car riders will drop-off at the Middlebrook Pike entrance. Special Education Busses and Special Education Shuttles will continue to drop-off on the Francis Rd. side of the building and enter with staff through locked entrances. If you choose to drop your child off from a parking space at the Middlebrook Pike parking lot instead of using the drop-off line, then please tell your child to use the cross walk when walking to the building.
Students can enter the building beginning at 7:15am from the Middlebrook side. Please do not drop students off at the Francis Rd entrance. The doors will be locked.
7:15-7:30am - Students sit in the cafeteria
7:30-8:25am - Cafeteria open for breakfast - Students wanting breakfast must get it as soon as they enter the building.

Afternoon Pick-Up: Remains the same as last school year. Busses will pick up on the Francis Rd. side of the building. Bus Riders and Walkers will be released at 3:25pm. Car Riders will be released at 3:30. Students can be picked up in the Middlebrook Parking Lot or alongside the building. I've attached a link to the traffic flow pattern here.
