Parking on Rike Field for Adviser Appointments Sept. 18 and 20
If you have an appointment with your child's adviser Sept. 18 or Sept. 20 before the 10 a.m. late class start, please park on Rike Field (front of the field house). Parking on the hill is more convenient for some appointments, but is much more dangerous for students, faculty and families.
Baked Treats for Boarders
If you like to bake, the Dorm Delight Divas need you! On Thursday, Sept. 26 from 7:30 a.m. – 8:30 a.m. volunteers will be collecting homemade brownies and other baked treats (two dozen per baker) at the Field House for boarding students. The boarders love home-cooked food, so this is a special treat that they will be able to look forward to each month. Check out the easy Volunteer Spot sign-up calendar and volunteer to bake for an upcoming month(s) by clicking here . You can sign up for as many or as few months as you like and you can change your sign-ups later if your schedule changes. It will even send you a reminder. Thanks to Boarding Parent Ambassadors Linda Benton and Lisa Romanchik for organizing this effort.

Reminder on Student Accident Insurance
The Business Office would like to remind parents that the school has an accident insurance plan that pays benefits for injuries to students occurring during the school day or while participating in school-sponsored and supervised activities on or off the Baylor campus. If your child is injured, please ask the supervisor or coach to complete an accident form (available from Brenda Waddell in the Business Office). This is a secondary insurance plan and pays only after charges have been submitted to your primary insurance provider. Note: all claims must be submitted within 90 days of any accident.
