** Students scheduled to test on Friday, May 6th**

Any student scheduled to test on Friday, May 6 (AP US History and AP Microeconomics), please be aware that this is a remote day for all students because the high school is hosting a track invitational.  Students will be expected to provide their own transportation to and from school on this day due to it being a remote day.  

Mrs. Tremblay will be meeting with students on Thursday, April 28 to provide parking passes for students who will need to drive themselves.  It is highly encouraged that students carpool or be dropped off due to the other events happening at BHS.  All students will enter the building through the south entrance on May 6th and those students with a parking pass will park in reserved parking in the south lot. 

Other Reminders: 

  • Students will need to have their own transportation arranged for 12:00pm exams.  Some AP exams scheduled to begin at 12:00pm will extend past 3:00 pm and therefore students will not be able to catch the bus home if they have a 12:00pm exam.  

  • Remote students will be required to test in person for exams.  Remote students who are coming to the building to test will need to provide their own transportation to and from school the day of the test. 

  • If your test is during your lunch period, plan to eat either an early or a late lunch.  You will be permitted back to class after you have eaten.  If you have a test at both 8:00am and 12:00pm, please plan to either pack your lunch or bring snacks for between the tests.   

  • Students will not be individually dismissed upon completion of the exam. All students will be required to stay for the entire testing window.

BHS 2022-2023 Arena Scheduling Process

School Counselors have been meeting with students through homeroom classes to share information on graduation requirements, the BHS course catalog, and the scheduling process.  Below is the timeline for scheduling this year, which includes updated arena scheduling dates, which are bolded below.  Each grade level will have two days to complete their arena scheduling process.  On the first day of each arena, the school schedule will be adjusted to allow for an extended homeroom period to give students the opportunity to complete their scheduling during the school day.  Current seniors homeroom classes will partner with lower grade levels to assist with the arena scheduling process during this time.  

In addition, the BHS Course Catalog, BHS Scheduling Guide, as well as the BHS Course Request/Approval form are linked here.  All of this information, as well as recordings of the school counseling scheduling meetings, can be found on the School Counseling Canvas pages.  If students have questions or concerns, please reach out via email or set up an appointment.
