Core Values

January's CORE Essential Value is Knowledge.  Knowledge is learning something new so you can be better at whatever you do. 

Volunteer At Bowman

If you have a student at Bowman and would like to volunteer in the classroom, you must complete a Criminal Record Check per the Lebanon City Board Policy. The Volunteer Flyer provides step-by-step instructions on how to obtain approval to volunteer in your child's classroom and is available through this link:

The Central Office is open Monday-Friday from 8:00am-4:00pm. Once your background check is complete, please call Olivia French for an appointment at (513)934-5770.

School Delay Schedule

In the event of a 2-hour delay, there will be no AM Preschool and no AM Kindergarten.   PM Preschool and PM Kindergarten students will report at their regular start time for the afternoon session (1:00PM - 3:45PM). Buses will run as scheduled.  Kindergarten ​JumpStart and Kindergarten ELL students will report to school on the same 1 hour or 2 hour delay schedule as the 1st and 2nd graders (see school delay schedule in the Student Handbook).

Safe School Hotline

The Board of Education is committed to providing a safe, positive, productive and nurturing educational environment for all of its students.  The Board encourages the promotion of positive interpersonal relationships between members of the school community.

Although we encourage open communication between students and staff, we also understand some students may feel more comfortable reporting a concern anonymously.  For this reason, we offer a SAFE SCHOOL HOTLINE at 513-934-1167.  

This phone number allows a student or parent to report a concern.  This line is checked daily for messages.

Early Release Wednesdays

If you have an AM Preschool/Kindergarten student the start time remains the same, however, the release time begins at 11AM. AM Students on buses will be dropped off 1/2 hour earlier than their typical MTHF times.
If you have a PM Kindergarten or Preschool student, the school day begins at 12:30. We will begin the car rider release at 2:30 for all PM students (including 1st and 2nd grade) at Bowman. Students riding a bus in the PM will arrive home 1 hour earlier than the MTHF times.
