We have two educational field trips planned for this semester! One to the Memphis City Zoo and the other to the Discovery Park of America in Union City. The total cost of both trips is $86.00. This price includes transportation, admission, lunch, and activities in the zoo and the park.
Payments are due on or before March 24, 2023. We are unable to accept payments after this date, and all payments are non-refundable.
Parents are welcome to attend both trips as volunteers/chaperones but must provide their own transportation. Volunteers must be background checked and attend the mandatory orientation. Admission to the Discovery Park of America is $25.00, and Zoo admission is $21.00. Again, parent attendees are permitted as volunteers/chaperones only.
We will visit the Memphis Zoo on April 14th. Scholars must arrive by 8:00 AM to attend the trip. If your scholar arrives after 8:00 AM, they will not attend the trip.
Scholars will journey to the Discovery Park of America on Friday, May 12th, and must arrive at school no later than 7:00 AM. We will receive scholars from 6:30 to 7:00 AM. A grab-and-go breakfast will be provided, and the bus will depat at 7:30 AM. If your scholar arrives after 7:00 AM, even if the bus has not departed, they will not be allowed to attend the trip.
All payments must be made through our Eagle shop. Please visit www.bol.academy/shop/
Tickets will be live tomorrow, March 8th.

On April 6th, scholars from Junior K through 3rd Grade will recite original or learned poetry individually or with other scholars. Scholars are encouraged to dress for their performance, bring props, and be as creative as possible. If you’d like your scholar to present a piece, please sign them up using the QR code below. Parents, if you are a poet and would like to perform for the BOLPA community, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
SAT testing will take place on April 17th-21st.

Amendment to Elementary Attendance Policy Effective Immediately
Effective immediately, all elementary scholars must arrive at school early enough to enter their classroom by 9:00 AM. If scholars are not received by their teacher at 9:00 AM, they will be marked tardy. Arriving at the school’s entrance at 9:00 AM will result in a tardy mark.
Elementary Attendance Policy
Parents, we appreciate advance notice of early dismissal; however, please let us know when you arrive on campus for your scholar to be called to the front office. Scholars will not pack up and leave class prior to your arrival. As a reminder, the cut-off time for early dismissal is 3:30 PM. If you have not arrived on campus and contacted the office by 3:30 PM, your scholar will not be dismissed early. Also, note that five unexcused absences/tardies equal one unexcused absence. Thank you for adhering to our policy.
As a reminder, please keep your window lowered while in the carline during dismissal so that we may easily and quickly identify you. As a reminder, we ask that you move into a parking space to buckle your scholar in so we can move expeditiously. Parents are asked not to go around other vehicles in the car line for safety reasons. We ask that you patiently wait for the vehicle ahead of you to pull off before the next vehicle moves.
