Did You Know?

W.E.E. Bus The W.E.E. Learning Bus brings education and technology to the community. A roaming computer lab with 20 computer stations, Wi-Fi, printer and a flat screen TV for group instruction, the W.E.E. Learning Bus travels to various schools by day and can be found in local neighborhoods at night. On any given evening you may find a student receiving tutoring help, a senior adult learning to navigate the computer, a high school student prepping for their ACT, or an adult seeking assistance on their resume. Visit the W.E.E. Learning Bus calendar for dates when the bus will be near you.

News and Events

  • Severe Weather Procedures

    Spring is just around the corner and that also means the threat of stormy weather conditions. The BSSD will take every precaution possible to protect your child in the event of turbulent weather conditions. In cooperation with local emergency responders, our Department of Public Safety has conducted an audit of our buildings and the best locations have been identified to shelter our students and staff. We drill regularly as required by state law and school board policy and each and every drill is conducted with attention to detail. March 3rd marks the annual statewide Tornado drill and our school will be conducting our own drill as well. In the event of an actual event, our communications system allows for information to be shared internally as needed in a timely manner if other systems have failed and we will do our best to keep you updated when we divert from our normal day. The safety of our students and staff are of the highest priority and this is our focus if the weather sirens are sounded. If we have been directed to take shelter, our office staff will be sent to a safe location as well. This means our secured doors will not be monitored and our phones will not be answered until the “all clear” occurs. We cannot place our staff in peril to keep those items functioning.
