  • SAFETY UPDATE - ACCESS To BHS During School Hours 

    We have recently added a locking feature to the front lobby doors (both sides of the building) that will allow us to restrict access into the building. During school hours (8:30 am - 4:32 pm) all exterior doors will remain locked, and the lobby doors will only be unlocked at certain times of the day. These doors will unlock during passing periods for students to move quickly to and from classes and  will automatically lock at the end of passing periods. The doors will be unlocked during both lunch hours and will once again lock at the end of each lunch period.

     

    All visitors will be required to press the call button, located outside of the main entryway, to gain access to the building.  Visitors will not be allowed access at any other location. Campus Supervisors will be monitoring the doors and all access points into the building.  

     

    Additionally, all students MUST carry their student ID at all times while on campus.  Beginning next week, any student arriving after the doors have locked will be required to show their ID when requesting access into the school.  If your student did not get an ID picture taken, or has lost their ID, they will need to report to the main office to obtain an ID. Replacement ID’s are $5.00.

  • 2nd Semester Schedule Repairs

    Schedule Repairs - Due to the complexity of our schedule and the large number of students enrolled in all of our classes, we CANNOT rearrange schedules.

    • WE WILL NOT CHANGE:  Teachers, lunch hours, or class periods.
    • WE MAY MAKE REPAIRS TO STUDENT SCHEDULES FOR THE FOLLOWING REASONS:
      • A course you selected is full or has a conflict
      • You did not select enough courses for a full schedule (7 classes for 9th graders, 6 classes for 10th graders and 5 classes for 11th & 12th graders)
      • You are missing a core required class - English, Math, Science, Social Studies
      • Duplicate class
      • Wrong placement/missing prerequisite

    Starting on Tuesday, December 11th, the Infinite Campus portal will be open for students to view their 2nd semester class schedule.  To view your schedule click on the reports tab and then "Second Semester Schedule". Any student needing to make a repair to their 2nd Semester Schedule may do so by seeing their counselor during their off hour or during lunches.
