|BSD: School Funding 101 – Understanding Our Money Sources
|Learn more about the district’s sources of money and how we can spend them. In school districts, we have multiple buckets of funds where our money is accounted for — General Fund, Capital and Technology Fund and Building Fund. Each of these funds has designated uses and we as a district are limited in how we can transfer money between these funds based on state law.School Funding 101 – Understanding Our Money Sources – Bellevue School District (bsd405.org)

|Tyee: Arrival & Dismissal Reminders
|As the days become darker, and a new activity season begins, we wanted to share a few reminders for our families driving to school!
Arrival: Tyee is open at 8:00am every morning. We strongly encourage families driving to drop students off before 8:15am. Our families dropping students off between 7:55 and 8:05 face very little traffic! Earlier arrivals lessen traffic jams, and better ensure our buses to get in. Our building is open for students to eat breakfast, catch up on homework, and visit the library!
Dismissal: Students participating in after school clubs & activities must be picked up by 4:50pm. The Activity Bus will continue running through the year. It is very dark, so it is important families ensure students are picked up right after practice.
|Tyee: Inclement Weather and Potential Closure Reminders
|Winter is approaching and may bring unpredictable weather. If there are severe conditions, BSD will communicate any schedule changes or closures through direct messages, including email, text message, phone call, social media, FlashAlert, local media and posts to www.bsd405.org. While these decisions are made for the district at large, conditions may vary in certain neighborhoods. We encourage families to make personal decisions based on their specific circumstances.
|Tyee: Pre-Arranged Absences
|As holidays and school breaks are fast approaching, we wanted to provide a reminder and guidance to families scheduling plans and travel about pre-arranging absences with our Attendance Office. Bellevue School District provides students with 5 pre-arranged absence days per school year. These are excused and can be used for family events, travel, extracurricular events, private school tours, etc. Days beyond the 5-day limit are marked as “unexcused”. Unexcused absences may impact students from receiving credit for missed coursework or exams.
Please complete the pre-arranged absence form prior to the absence for it to be excused. Students must obtain teacher and parent signatures. After they get all teacher signatures, your student will need to turn the completed form in to the attendance office. This form should be submitted to the attendance office at least 3 days before the planned absence so we have time to process it. You can find more information about pre-arranged absences on this page: https://bsd405.org/tyee/report-an-absence/
|Tyee: Nurse News
|Feeling Sick? We strongly recommend you and your student to stay home if you are having cold-like symptoms. Please visit: https://bsd405.org/services/health/too-sick-for-school/. Giving a fever reducing medication just before returning to school does not make a student well. It may only mask the fever until the medication wears off. In this situation, a student needs to be home so others are not exposed to illness. Fever reducing medications include: Acetaminophen (Tylenol); Ibuprofen; Aspirin; Naproxen; Dayquil; Nyquil
Going Home Early? Students are to notify the office/clinic when checking out. If your student calls home directly to request you pick them up, please remind them to go to the clinic or office.
