Pierce Elementary

Inspiring all learners to positively impact their world.



    Dear Pierce Families,

    We are glad we have been able to successfully transition to the use of Chromebooks. With that transition complete, it is time for us to collect all of the older Dell laptops, IPads and corresponding chargers that were checked out to families last spring and this fall. For ease, put the electronic device with the cord in a bag and label the bag with your child’s first and last name on it.

    BVA Families – You may drop off your laptop, at Pierce between 8:00am and 4:00 on Thursday, January 21 (the next deployment day). Please bring it to the Main Entrance. Once you buzz the office, a staff member will be able to guide you to where to place the bag. Please continue to practice social distancing while returning these devices.

    Hybrid Families - please place the labeled bag with the borrowed laptop or Ipad and the corresponding charger in your child’s backpack ASAP. Have your child give the technology to their classroom teacher.

    We need to inventory these computers for use at other BPS schools for immediate use.

    Thank you for your ongoing cooperation and support!

  • Just a reminder to parents, the Clear-To-Go app COVID screener must be done every day before your student comes to school. We recommend doing this at least 1 hour prior to them entering the building. Thank you for your cooperation!

  • Library Book Checkout Process

    We are excited to announce that the Pierce Library is ready to begin circulating materials! Some students have reserved books already and we are working on distribution of those materials. Some students may see the books they reserved in the next deployment.

    We want to make sure all students know they are able to reserve materials using our Destiny Library Catalog. Pierce staff will pull the books that are available (some may be checked out or in book quarantine) and have them ready for you by the next deployment day.

    Students will have two books checked out at a time. Available books will be included with your child’s other classroom materials. You may return the books at the next checkout period. During this time, we are following the recommended procedures for library material handling from the CDC and The Realm Project.

    If more books are issued and your child has not returned their books, leaving you with more than 2 books at home, we will not be able to deploy additional library books until overdue books are returned.

    Additionally, please know that books will still be checked out under your child’s name during the books quarantine time. We wanted you to be aware as you may get a message that the book is still in your child’s possession until we are able to check it in.

    Please use the video tutorial linked below for placing books on hold to assist your child: https://watchkin.com/645d089668

    For your convenience, here is the link to Birmingham Public School’s homepage: https://www.birmingham.k12.mi.us/

    To receive your materials in a timely manner, please allow ample time between placing books on hold and your materials pick up date.

    If you have trouble logging in or placing a hold please email PHartman-sub@birmingham.k12.mi.us instead of your classroom teacher.

    Parents, please screen your students in the Clear to Go app at least one hour prior to entering the building. The app only holds a result for 18 hours so you need to do this EVERY DAY.
