We are very excited to announce that the Benton-Carroll-Salem Local Schools has partnered with FinalForms, an online forms and data management service. FinalForms allows you to complete and sign enrollment, contact and athletic participation forms for your students. The most exciting news is that FinalForms saves data from year-to-year and season-to-season, meaning that you will never need to enter the same information twice! FinalForms also pre-populates information wherever possible, for each of your students, saving you time.
You may review your data at any time to verify it is current. You will be required to sign your forms once per year and after any update.
Click on the Parent Playbook (attached) to get started in FinalForms. If you require any support during the process, scroll to the page bottom and click “Use Support”.
We are asking that ALL parents of Benton-Carroll-Salem students use FinalForms.
Please register at: https://bentoncarrollsalem-oh.finalforms.com/ (click here)
and follow the prompts to create your account, create your students and sign your forms.
Thank you for your assistance in streamlining our paperwork processes at Benton-Carroll-Salem Local Schools.
The first day of school for the 2020-2021 School Year will remain as originally scheduled: August 26, 2020. Check back here for information on the coming school year.
Mental Health and Well Being
These are challenging times for adults, and more so for young people. If you think your child can benefit from talking to a counselor, please do not hesitate to call your child's school on March 30 or after. I also want to remind you of the Crisis Text Line:
Text HOME to 741741 from anywhere in the United States, anytime, about any type of crisis.
One suggestion for our overall mental health is for us to all get outside and walk, or do some kind of physical activity (while practicing social distancing). Something as simple as a walk can do wonders for the mood and help with anxiety.
The latest news and information will be sent via emails and will be posted to the front page of the district website, www.bcssd.com. You can also follow the Superintendent on Twitter: @BCS_Supt
Be Calm. Be Well. Be Kind.
In order to be eligible for Kindergarten, a child must be 5 years old by August 1. All Kindergarten students should be screened and registered to begin the school year.
