  • BHS Track and Football Field are CLOSED

    BHS track and football field are CLOSED until July 8. We are getting a new a track at our football stadium. Unfortunately, that means the entire football stadium and track are off limits until July 8. The foundation beneath the track has to be torn up and replaced. Once that is finished, the track will then get a new surface. This entire project lasts 14 weeks. Please share this information with anyone you know who likes to use our track and/or football field for exercising. The stadium is closed and anyone that ignores the signs and enters the track or football field will be charged with trespassing and if damage is done to the track, will also be charged with vandalism. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

We are looking for presenters in a wide range of fields! Please reach out to  Kendall Ryan if you have any questions.

  • Clinic Information

    If your student needs to take a prescription or "over the counter" (OTC) medication while at school, please contact the school nurse. Parents can either come to school to give their child a needed dose, or they can fill out the proper forms from the nurse to keep it in the clinic for the year. Except for certain emergency medications for which parent/guardian and physician authorization is received by the nurse, students are not permitted to carry medication on their person. This includes vitamins, cough drops, prescription and non-prescription medications. Students who have medication at school in their backpack, etc. could be subject to suspension.

  • Student Breakfast and Lunch Accounts

    Please note that students can only charge up to two lunches if they have run out of money in their account. That is the equivalent of $10.

    If your child needs funds in their account, parents can go to MySchoolBucks  to create an account and/or to securely add money to the child’s account. Parents can follow the instructions and pick what they want to do:

    • Add money.
    • Add notes to accounts.
    • Set up automatic deposits.
    • Low balance alerts
    • See what is being purchased.
    • Apply for free/reduced meals.

    If you have any questions or concerns about the lunch accounts, you can contact our cafeteria manager Penny Buttrey. 

  • Focusing on a Culture of Kindness

    • We continue to focus on the BE NICE state of mind and encourage people to treat others as they would want to be treated.
    • For the benefit of your child, please continue to develop close relationships with teachers and school staff. We know it takes a village and we are better together!
    • Feedback is important and helps us grow—be sure to share any thoughts with those who work in your schools.
