Parents and Guardians-
Bataan's gymnasium floor is in the process of being waxed. For this reason, Bataan will have an alternate procedure for student dismissal for the first week of school. Parents will enter the building through the front doors at 3:00 pm. You will pick up your child/children from their classroom and exit through the front of the building. Bus dismissal procedures will remain the same. I apologize in advance for any inconvenience and greatly appreciate your continued support.
