Other School News

Congratulations to Brentwood High Art teacher, Heather McHugh, who was recently recognized as the Tennessee Art Education Association’s Secondary Teacher of the Year!

BHS students! We are preparing for our academic awards ceremony. In the event you earned a perfect SAT or ACT composite or sub-scores, we need your help! Please submit a hard copy only of your score report to Dr. Simmons office, by March 24, 2020.  Do not email the scores.  Please note, BHS does not receive reports from College Board for SAT.

BHS students, When on campus you must think about safety first. We have noticed some students are leaving valuables unsecured in the building and parking lots. Remember, stow away your belongings out of view and lock your cars. Drive slowly in the parking lot and follow the outside perimeter per the arrows. Also, we have many new drivers second semester. Every student shall obtain a parking pass after completing the check points driving safety class. Deadline for all drivers to display their 2019-2020 BHS parking pass, is Monday, January 27, 2020.

Due to the increased volume of unplanned early dismissals, we will no longer except phone call or email dismissals except in the case of a true emergency. For an early dismissal please send a hand-written note with your student including the date, time and reason for the dismissal. Your student will exchange this for an early dismissal pass in student services before 9:30 AM. You will receive a phone call to confirm this early dismissal. A medical appointment requires that the student return with a doctor’s note to excuse the absence. All excuse notes for missed school days must be turned into student services within one week of the absence. If your student becomes sick at school, they should go to the clinic. Our school nurse will call you for permission to allow the student to leave if the student is ill. As a reminder, the WCS attendance policy states that a student may miss 8 days per school year excusable with a parent note. After 8 days, official documentation is required. Examples of official documentation include medical notes, college visits, court documentation, DMV, letters from travel sport organizations, etc. Thank you for helping us minimize classroom disruptions.
