The safety of our Bent Tree Elementary students is everyone’s job. If students are to be kept safe, everyone (parents, staff, and students) must cooperate by following all school procedures and being patient and cautious at all times. It is important to understand that there is no supervision for students prior to 7:30 am when the building opens for breakfast, unless your child is enrolled in the Before School Care Program. Please remember to use crosswalk when crossing the street.
