Is Your Student Too Sick for School?
When your student has a fever, keep them home. During the first days of illness when systems are most severe and the infection is most contagious, students should stay home. Students can return to school when symptoms are improving and no fever has been detected for 24 hours.

Welcome to the Bear Creek Middle School Media Center.
Students may check out books any time between 7:00 am and 3:00 pm while school is in session.
Students may check out 2 books at a time unless teachers have requested other arrangements.
There are no due dates for our books. We ask that students return the books as soon as they finish reading them. If they finish one of their books and would like to check out a new book, they must bring both books back to the media center. We will renew the one book and allow them to get another new book.
Classes come to the media center throughout the week to hear a story, checkout books, do research, receive instruction in library skills, healthy foods and 21 Century technology skills. In addition, students come to the library weekly to participate in book clubs.
Parents: You may come to the media center to check out books to read to your children at home. You may check out up to 4 books under your name at a time. Your children will be responsible for returning your books to the media center.
There are no fines for overdue books, but if a child loses or damages a library book, he may not check out another book until the book in question is returned or paid for.
