Frequently Asked Questions
When will I find out my child’s schedule for the 2017-2018 school year? Family/Student Access Opens in late-August. You may log on to your Skyward account to check your students schedule, homeroom and transportation information at that time.
My child is taking the bus next year, how will I find out their bus stop and pick up/drop off times? Family/Student Access Opens in late-August. You may log on to your Skyward account to check your students schedule, homeroom and transportation information at that time.
We are moving over the summer, whom should I notify? Please complete the Change of Address form when moving within district.
How do I access the Summer 2017 Meals Locator? Summer Meal Programs help close the nutrition gap children face when schools let out for summer — when children no longer receive school meals they relied on throughout the school year. Please use this information about the availability and location of free meals for students over the summer months through the Summer Food Service Program.

Families can use any of the following methods to locate sites that serve free meals to children during the summer:
-Call 1.866.348.6479 (English) or 1.877.842.6273 (Spanish)
-Text “FOOD” for English or “COMIDA” for Spanish to 877-877 to find a meal site near you during the summer months.
-Visit the website: 
My child is ending the year with a balance in his/her food account, what do I do? This balance will be rolled over for your use next year, and will also transfer from one school to another within our district (ex: from 4th grade elementary to 5/6th Grade Center).
If you are leaving the district and have an ending balance of $5 or more, you will be issued a refund check. In order for a refund checks to be issued, you need to submit in writing, via letter or email, to the District Office (Attn: Food Services), the students name and student ID number, a copy of the district withdrawal form and the address you would like the check sent to. If you have any questions regarding an ending balance, please contact Mrs. Tracy Bogucki in the food services office at:610-705-6209 or email 
  BTS Supply List  

Back-to-School shopping lists will be available later this summer on your school's homepage. Please keep in mind that additional items may be requested by your child’s individual teacher, depending on their grade level or class.


Back-to-School Shopping Tips Shop end-of-summer sales: The big rush to buy school supplies occurs in August. If you avoid this peak time and buy after the rush, when items often go on sale for 50%-75% off retail prices, you can save a lot of money.
Stick to the list: Extra supplies, while they may be cute, probably won't get used and just leave your pockets empty. Stick to the supply list, or check with your students teacher for additional items.
Head to the dollar store for basic supplies: Check for great deals on pens and loose-leaf paper!
Let the kids raid your cabinets: The kids can select home-office supplies to personalize. For example, decorate inexpensive white binders with photos by creating a collage and inserting the page into the plastic cover.
Host a back-to-school swap: Round up a couple of other parents with kids to host an annual clothes swap. Trade toys and books, too! You'll save a bundle.
Take inventory: Sort through last year’s supplies to see what is left over or can be reused. Having trouble finding last year’s stuff? Resolve to set up a place to keep your school supplies together this year.
Browse Craigslist: Yes, you can find top-quality stuff on the cheap, but you can be a seller, too. Why not get some cash for that barely worn, now outgrown brand-name outfit? Just enter your location and click on "Baby and Kids.”

Donate your extra supplies:
Consider donating any supplies or gently used backpacks you don’t plan to use to your students school.
