    Important Dates for Seniors - Class of 2019

    Attendance Reminders:   To report your student’s absence, tardiness, or any attendance concern, please call the main line 248-203-3500 option 2.

    If your student needs to leave early, please send a note.   This makes it so much easier for a student to leave the classroom on time.  Calling the classroom is disruptive to the teacher and fellow students. 

    The Academic Summer School is open now for registration.  The link is below or it can be found on the BPS home page.  All classes meet at Seaholm.

    eFunds for Schools 

    How do to I pay for any fees that I may need to pay?

    This is a separate program from the Infosnap registration system and will require a separate login and password.

    You will need your student(s) id number(s) to link to your children’s names and fee options. Id number(s) can be found on your student’s id card and/or report card. Another source is when you are completing the on-line registration.

    To create an account or to login to an existing account, visit: https://payments.efundsforschools.com/v3/districts/56264

    Once on the eFunds for Schools homepage, the links for to “Create An Account” or to “Login” are half way down on the left. Please print your eFunds receipt and have your student bring to registration on August 21, 22 or late registration.

    Will there be fees associated with using e-Funds?

    There is a small convenience fee associated with each payment: $1.00 for using your checking/savings account information (direct ACH), and $2.65 (per $100) for using your credit/debit card.

    Please make sure both the e-Funds and online registration have been completed before arriving at registration on the assigned date.  Your student will need to bring the efunds receipt with them to registration.

    College Visit Schedule 2018-2019

    Student Drop-Off / Pick-Up and Visitor Parking 
    Families are encouraged to use the district transportation service whenever possible.
    Families choosing not to use district transportation are encouraged to
    carpool with friends and neighbors.

    Students may be dropped off and picked up from three (3) locations:
    the Front Circle Drive off 13 Mile Road,
    the designated drop off lanes in the West Lot-the West Porch “designated drop off lane”
    or the Pool Entrance area.
    The “designated drop off lanes” will be marked by painted lines
    along the West Porch and Pool Entrance area.
    Parents are asked to pull up as far forward as possible
    when using the Front Circle Drive, the West Porch, or the Athletic area.
    Please pull into the area so student traffic can continue to move in the lot.
    Left hand turns from the Front Circle Drive are strongly discouraged.
    Left hand turns may be unsafe and will cause traffic to become congested in the circle drive.
    These areas will become congested from 7:15 to 7:30 a.m. and from 2:45 to 3:00 p.m.
    Parents are encouraged to drop students off prior to 7:10 a.m. and pickup after 2:50 p.m.

    All students must be picked up by 3:00 p.m. every day.
    Students who are not participating in an after-school activity will have to exit the building.

    There will be no student drop-off or pick-up in the North Lot or North Lane
    because of safety issues. Drivers may not use the Music Circle Drive
    for drop-off or pick-up - this area is designated for buses only.
    Consequences for families who use the North Lot, North Lane or
    Music Circle drive for drop-off are at the discretion of the administration
    and are adjusted as necessary based on the severity of the situation.

    Parents who visit the school during the day may park in the
    Front Circle Drive or the visitor parking area at the entrance to the West Lot.
    Visitors must check in with the front desk to identify their vehicle.
