If your child will be late or absent, please make a Plan Change in PickUp Patrol. For late arrivals, please indicate in the notes what your child's lunch plan is for the day (hot lunch, fun lunch, cold lunch, or home lunch) in the Notes section of your entry. Lunch orders must be received by 8:45 am.
Dismissal plan changes should be made in PickUp Patrol before the 2 pm cutoff (11:00 am on Wednesday). Changes after the cutoff times will only be accepted in case of emergency. Such changes can be made via phone directly to the main office. The end of the school day is a busy time, so to ensure the safety of all students, please plan accordingly and limit these exceptions to emergencies ONLY. Plan changes can be made days, weeks, or months in advance.
Our values of KLB (Kindness, Leadership and Learning and Best Effort) are evident in everything at Bates, from showing kindness toward a new student to practicing a growth mindset.
Katherine Lee Bates
The school is named for Katherine Lee Bates (August 12, 1859 – March 28, 1929), who was a songwriter and Wellesley resident. She is remembered as the author of the words to the anthem "America the Beautiful."
