Bailey Bear Happenings - October 29th Edition



October 29th Edition

Principal's Note

Water Bottles 


Did you know we have three touchless water bottle filling stations on campus?  We have one on each of the 6th and 7th grade wings and one in the main hallway by the cafeteria.  We are expecting 2 more to be installed soon (one in the 8th grade wing and one in the gym hallway).  Why is this important?  While we are still dealing with Covid 19 restrictions AISD has shut down the use of our drinking fountains as a precaution.  We have asked students to bring their own water bottles to school and refill them as needed at lunch or during a passing period (it takes only a few seconds to get plenty of water).  We have been providing bottled water for students who forget their refillable water bottles.  Unfortunately, students are taking advantage of our generosity.  Some students use "getting a bottle of water" as an excuse to get out class for a few minutes, while others are poking holes in the bottled water and spraying other students.  Wet floors in high traffic areas become dangerous floors.

We need your help.  Please send your child to school with a refillable water bottle (with their name on it) every day.  This is the best, safest way to keep them hydrated.  We can support students who forget their personal water bottle on occasion, but we cannot sustain giving out bottled water to dozens of students every day, sometimes more than once a day.  So please, send your student with their own water bottle daily.
