THE WEEK AHEAD-Important Events
- ATHLETICS - See the upcoming sporting events
Students will be available to pick up during your lunch next week.
Attendance is a key factor in student success! Parents are strongly encouraged to schedule appointments outside of the school day. If your student must miss school, please follow the following procedures in accordance with our attendance policy to ensure the absence is excused:
All Day Absence – Parent/Guardian must call the attendance line (952-707-2104) as soon as possible in the morning to report the absence. If this is not possible, parents may send a signed note to school when the student returns.
Arriving Late to School – Parent/Guardian must call the attendance line (952-707- 2104) as soon as possible in the morning AND the student must complete the sign-in form in the Main Office when they arrive to school. If a call is not possible, the student can bring a signed note to the office when they arrive to school AND complete the sign in form. If the student does not sign in upon arrival to school, they will not be excused.
Leaving Early from School (for an appointment, etc.) - Parent/Guardian must call the attendance line (952-707-2104) before 10:00 am AND the student must pick up their departure pass before leaving school. With the pass in hand, they are able to walk out of the building at the appropriate time eliminating the need for parents to come into the building. If the student is returning to school after the appointment, they should bring their departure pass back into the Office and get signed back in to school.
PLEASE NOTE: If students are leaving school due to illness, they need to check out through the health office in order to be excused. A parent/guardian needs to be contacted by a nurse, and a pass will be issued for students when leaving school. We cannot go back and excuse students who do not check out before leaving. If they do not check out, they will not be excused.
A note from your BHS Kitchen Staff:
Due to poor leafy green crops in the US, we are temporarily removing fresh salads from the November menu. This change will become effective on Monday, November 14th.
We have been made aware there will be supply gaps and shortages and increased prices on those that are available. We encourage students and staff to try our main hot entrees. Please note that menu changes will be updated as soon as possible.
These items will return to the menu in December if the situation improves.
