    School Lunch Information - Application Needed for Free/Reduced at BBMS

    Due to the expiration of the national waiver providing all students with free meals, applications are required for the upcoming school year for parents who believe their student(s) may be eligible for free or reduced priced meals. 

    Applications will be available online. To avoid processing delays, please submit an online application as soon as possible by clicking the link to myschoolapps

    Parents should plan on providing their child with money for their meals until eligibility is established to avoid creating a deficit in their account. Funds can be added to student accounts online at myschoolbucks

    For additional information about ECSD School Food Services, please visit their Facebook page.

    FOCUS parent portal info

    The ECSD Information Technology Department has created a series of instructional videos to assist parents in accessing and learning the new features and settings available in the Focus™ Parent Portal Account program. The videos offered at this link include:

    1.    FOCUS™ for Parents: Why You Need A Parent Account

    2.    FOCUS™ for Parents: How to Create A Parent Online Account

    3.    FOCUS™ for Parents - Version 10 Updates

    There are also written instructions available: Focus™ Parent Portal: Create a New Online Account.  Parents signing up for the first time will want to gather some necessary information (the list is also available on this page). 

    Parents will need to know:

    1.    A valid email address

    2.    Your child’s date of birth

    3.    Your child’s 6-digit ECSD student ID number

    4.    The last four digits of your child’s Social Security Number

    A Parent Portal Account will also allow parents of multiple school-aged children to navigate from one child’s information page to another, without having to log out in-between.

    ECSD Families App

    Once parents have established their Focus™ Parent Portal account and password, they can also access their child’s information by using a mobile device and downloading the ECSD Families App. This free app is available in the Apple App Store, or on the Google Play store for Android phones.  The icon graphic is an apple wearing a graduation cap.

    Can't find grades in FOCUS?

    For Math and Encore, please make sure you have selected the correct grading period (Quarter 3, for example). See picture below.

    Stream grades are not found in FOCUS. Please see your student's planner. They should be writing their grades down on the light beige evaluation cards as their work is returned to them.
