Prescription Medication Disposal

Through their Rx4Safety and “Safe Trip for Scripts” partnership programs, Covanta Tulsa and the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics have successfully removed and destroyed over four million pounds of unwanted drugs and medications. This partnership helps protect rivers and streams from contamination, and is the safest, most environmentally sound method of keeping prescription drugs out of the hands of our youth and off the illegal black market, literally saving lives each day. Find a Prescription Take-Back Box location near you.



New Parent/Student Portal

The parent side of new PlusPortals will be fully functional for the 2019-2020 school year. We are still learning the process and apologize for any confusion created by previous parent emails. Since parents and guardians received an email link to register for next year, access to the full portal is not needed at this time. Backpack will continue to be the portal for student grades through the end of the 2018-2019 school year.

 

Please continue to update your email and other contact changes through the Backpack portal or by contacting our Registrar, Lindsey Jensen at ljensen@bishopkelley.org.

BK Investment Club Challenge Match
The BK Investments Club has recently been restructured and has received a $25,000 challenge match from a donor. The club, under the direction of BK teacher/former investment broker Dennis Keeley, currently has about $5,000 invested in the stock market. BK is looking for families to provide gifts to help us secure the challenge grant. In doing so, student members of the club will have $50,000 or more in new funds to invest over the coming years. We have received $1,000 for this effort from a Class of 2017 graduate and another $5,000 from a current family. For more information on the club and how you can help, contact BK's Director of Philanthropy, Doug Thomas at dthomas@bishopkelley.org or call 918.609.7115.
