 Medication Policy and Procedures

As mandated by the State, District, and Health Department, when a student is on the campus of any school in Palm Beach County, the student may not carry on their person or take ANY prescription or over-the-counter medication. Exceptions may apply for items like inhalers or EpiPens – after the proper procedures have been followed.  All Palm Beach County Schools are designated “Drug Free Zones”. The school nurse or designated school personnel may not administer any prescription or over-the-counter medication, unless certain procedures are followed. Please contact Nurse Angie Bailey at 561-882-3883 for specific details (after August 4th). For more information go to the Bak SchoolMessenger Page under Students & Parents.

Schedules - Distributed on the 1st day of school.  Bak uses a block schedule of alternating Odd/Even Days. On the first day of school students report to their Zero Hour (see below), then follow their Odd Day schedule. A schedule change will only be made in the case of a scheduling error or inappropriate academic placement as determined by administration. Please do not contact the school about any possible schedule changes until your child attends the class.

 Student Information System (SIS) - SIS access is vital to get grades, state-wide test history, and other essential information. If you have not already registered for a Parent SIS account, please do so (an email was sent to new parents with the information). If you have already set up an account and forgot your PIN, please contact  our SIS Manager (after August 16th),  Micah Kossove at: micah.kossove@palmbeachschools.org.

If lost or damaged, students can purchase a replacement I.D. for 5.00 dollars. Tri-Rail riders will get an additional Tri-Rail badge that must also be worn.  Extra ID’s will be available for ($5 each) on SchoolCashOnline at a later date.
