***Did you know the BHS kitchen offers lunches for students who are absent due to covid/covid close contacts? The menu of the day is packed to go and ready for pick up at door #1 in the roundabout at 12:45. Please email your request for a lunch to the kitchen (email@example.com) by 10:30 a.m. Students can sign up daily or by the week. Reminder that school lunch is free to students until the end of the year.
Covid Reminder: We appreciate our parents understanding that covid and close contacts can cause things to be a chaotic. We do not know when we are going to get a call regarding a positive case. It is important for you to have someone on stand by to pick up your child if they are a close contact just as you would if they came down with the stomach flu. Please make arrangements with a family member or friend to help if you are not able to come pick your child up at any given time.
If your child has any symptoms that may lead you to believe they are at risk of testing positive for covid, please keep them home until symptoms improve or they have a negative test. Some of the symptoms we have been hearing about are headaches, body aches, stomach aches, scratchy throats, & fevers. With the increased number of cases in the school we are asking you to be extra cautious.
If your child is sent home as a close contact or is a positive case, homework will be sent via google classroom or email. If there is something they need from the school, just call the office and we'll get it out of lockers/desks and have it ready for you to pick up. We want all students to be able to keep up while they are at home. Please encourage them to complete their assignments every day while they are home if they are feeling well enough to do so.
Please remember that our school doors do not open until 8:00.
It's important that students not be at school until 8:00.
In our effort's to social distance, we are continuing to have children that are dropped off at 8:00 go to the gym or to the lunchroom for breakfast.
If they are not coming for breakfast, students are encouraged to come to school after 8:13 and go straight to their home room.
After School Study Hall: All students are welcome to attend from 3:30 - 4:20 on Monday, Tuesday and Thursdays. No RSVP necessary.
Lost and Found: We keep items that appear expensive, such as jewelry and electronics, in the office. Please check with us if you don't find what you're looking for on the Lost and Found tables.
In the event that we have a "late start", school will always start at 10:00. Late starts will be announced on the local news, facebook and via the school one call system. If you have not received a one call yet this year, please let Traci know in the office so we can double check the settings.
