2022 EOG Dates

Preparing for the 22-23 School Year
To help you prepare for the 22-23 school year at Brier Creek, we are posting information on this page on our website. I encourage you to refer to it for information pertaining to the start of the new school year in July.
Track Placement Requests Due Thursday
Students who will be new to BCES in 22-23 or will be returning to in-person learning at Brier Creek from Virtual Academy should complete a Track Placement Request no later than April 29.
Please remember, this is a request, not a guarantee. While the administration would love to grant all requests, there are multiple factors to consider, such as class size and keeping families on the same track, therefore not all requests will be able to be granted. Families whose track change requests are granted will be notified by the end of April. Track assignments for new families and VA students returning to in-person learning will be sent in early May.
Yearbook | If you have purchased a copy of the BCES Yearbook ($12.74+shipping), THANK YOU!! Please complete custom pages by April 29th to be sure your content appears in your book as you wish. You may still purchase yearbooks after this date. Click here for more details. If you have questions, please contact the Yearbook Chair, Andrea Bertole (firstname.lastname@example.org).
