New: BCE Teacher Bus Parade
Bluff Creek Elementary Staff and Teachers MISS YOU! On Thursday, May 28th starting at 11:00 am, we will
begin our bus parade at Bluff Creek Elementary and follow many of the bus routes of BCE students, honking
and waving to everyone along the way. This will be a great way for your students to reconnect with teachers
as we head into the summer of 2020!

While we truly wish we could visit every street / neighborhood, we know that just isn’t possible. We’ve done
our best to try and make it through each neighborhood based on where BCE students live. However, we might
not make it down your specific road. Please see the list of bus stops on our route and come to the route
closest to you. We hope that Thursday is nice so you can enjoy the parade while being outside and of course,
keep proper social distancing from others.
Safety of everyone involved is the utmost importance, so we ask the following:
