Good morning BHS Family! First and foremost, we would like to welcome you back for the 2022-2023 School Year! We have made some adjustments to our traffic flow pattern to hopefully better ease the morning traffic jam and increase safety. Parent drop-offs and staff will enter the school grounds through the main gate on Delgado Avenue and proceed to the second right of way and turn left. Parents will then drop off in the "old drop-off lane" but in reverse of what it used to be (West to East). Students will enter through the north gate on Eagle Lane, the previous parent drop-off lane and proceed to the student parking lot. Please see the attached image for more information, or call the BHS front office with any questions. Thank you all for you patience and understanding as we try to alleviate the traffic flow issues we typically experience each school year.
Reminder that registration will be held daily from 7:30 AM to 3:00 PM beginning with Seniors, Monday July 25th; Juniors, Tuesday July 26th; Sophomores, Wednesday July 27th; and Freshman, Thursday July 28th.
