Summer Reading

It's critically important to us that your child succeed, and that s/he gains the skills needed for life beyond high school. Research tells us that students who do not read over the summer break tend to experience "summer slide," a drop in their literacy skills. On the other hand, students who do read tend to start ahead and stay ahead. We want this for all students. 

For this reason, all students at BCHS will be expected to complete summer reading. The specific requirements vary by course and are detailed in the High School Summer Reading link at the top of this page. 

Thank you, and best wishes to you and your family this summer!

Parking 2018-2019 School Year

There have been lots of questions regarding parking passes for next year. Parking passes will be available at registration for purchase and not before.

As far as how many and who gets them we do not know for sure at this point. The goal is to have one of the new lots open prior to school starting, if that happens more than likely passes will be available as usual. If it is not then we will notify everyone of what steps we are taking to ensure the lots are not beyond capacity. Please be patient with us through this process.
