We are currently having problems with our parent drop off and pick up that is resulting in a back up of cars on highway 33. To remedy this issue, please pull up as far as possible. Please remain in your vehicle, and a BES staff member will safely bring your student to the car as you pull up to the gym entrance. Additionally, please continue to pull forward as other vehicles leave. Thank you for helping us expedite this process, while keeping our students safe.
All Pendleton County Schools will be closing at 12:30pm today, Wednesday, September 1.
