Educate, Engage, and Empower each student to succeed in a dynamic world.
The Vision of Brussels American School is to provide each student a diverse education in a safe, supportive environment that promotes academic excellence, life-long learning, self-discipline, global citizenship and tolerance.
It is the responsibility of the parents or guardians to notify the school every time a student is absent.
NOTE: Please check your school's calendar for information on additional release days for training, parent teacher conferences, and other activities.
The Commander, United States Army Garrison-Benelux is the authority for the closure of BAS based on inclement weather / road conditions or other safety and protection issues. The Commander will normally consult with the Brussels Deputy Garrison Manager and the Principal of the School before making a decision. The Garrison will publish school closures, early dismissals, delayed arrivals through AtHoc, the Garrison's message and warning system, and on social media, primarily the USAG Benelux-Brussels Facebook site - caution.
Additionally, the Brussels Military Police Desk Weather Hotline, 02 717 9870, will have school closure as well as weather and road condition information.
