Parking in the student lots will be on a first come first serve basis, however, any student who desires to park on the BHS Campus MUST have a parking permit affixed to the rear window of their car and must be registered in the main office.  Student can register their cars and obtain their parking permits in the main office on Thursday, August 2nd from 8am to 1pm and on Friday, August 3rd from 2pm to 4:00pm. Students will need to provide their driver’s license, registration and proof of insurance.
