    Each child will be given a blue bag at the beginning of the school year. Please bring the blue bag to school each day with a full change of clothing. On certain days, your child may also have the chance to bring an item from home for sharing/show-and-tell. Your child should also bring a water bottle and a nut-free snack.

    What happens during inclement weather?

    If Fairfax County schools are closed during the winter months for snow, ice, storms, and so forth, we also will close.  If the county schools should announce a two-hour delay, we will be open from 10:30am-12:30pm.

    If county schools announce an early closing during the school morning, we will close as soon as BPC Preschool students have been picked up. In this eventuality, please pick up your child as soon as you hear of the morning closing. On rare occasions, we may see the need to close because of weather, even though the county has opened. If this happens, we will notify each family by phone and/or email before 9:00am.

     

    What forms of payment do you accept? 

    All registration fees, monthly tuition, and other fees can be paid through your Brightwheel account.
