    Hello Students and Parents/Guardians,
    Due to our remote setting and current COVID-19 restrictions and health and safety precautions, there will be no Fall SAT or PSAT/NMSQT test administrations at BHS.  As of right now, plans are being developed for the P/SAT to occur in the Spring, April 2021.  We hope to be able to offer the PSAT/NMSQT to students in January 2021, but plans for this have not been finalized at this time.  To register to take the SAT on your own, visit collegeboard.org.  We will continue to update students/families with more information as it becomes available.  Please don't hesitate to reach out to Mrs. Sally Kelly, Associate Principal, with any questions or concerns you may have.
    Take care, 
    BHS Guidance




    Dear BHS Students and Parents/Guardians,

    Unfortunately, given the extraordinary circumstances and challenges that COVID-19 has already placed on the start of the school year, we are unable to accommodate schedule change requests for the Fall 2020 semester.  Our hope is to set students and teachers up for maximum success as they navigate remote learning together and we believe shifts in schedules disrupt that process.  Advisors can still initiate schedule changes necessary to ensure graduation requirements are being met. 
    If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to your/your student's advisor or Mrs. Sally Kelly, Associate Principal.  
    Thank you in advance for your understanding, cooperation, and support as we work together to overcome the obstacles that COVID-19 has thrown our way.  
    Take care,
    BHS Guidance Department
    Mrs. Common, Mrs. Elver, Mrs. Michels, Mrs. Crowder, and Ms. Gardner
