Mark your Calendars!


Back to School Night at BMHS will be held on August 30th from 5:00-7:00pm. Families are invited to enter through the main doors and visit with teachers, receive schedules, take a guided tour of the building and enjoy light refreshments. There will be staff available to assist with Skyward and Google Classroom, as well as representatives from each academy to answer any questions. We will also be featuring school and community resources, athletics and clubs/organizations. This is a great way to find out how to get involved at BMHS!

Did you miss Chromebook distribution or still need your Chromebook? We will have a table at Back to School night August 30th from 5:00 - 7:00 where you can get your Chromebook. If you still have an iPad (or other device) please bring it with you to return along with any chargers and cases that belong to the school district.

BMHS Student School Supplies

Be Ready for Day 1 (and Beyond)

First Day of School Reminders:

  • Check your schedule in Skyward before coming to school. This will guarantee that you have your most recent schedule with you. You will be able to use your phone or school Chromebook during passing times to check for your next class.
  • Bring your Chromebook with you daily and make sure to start the day with a fully charged Chromebook by plugging it in the night before.
    • Chromebook covers will be provided during 3rd Block during the first days of school.
    • If you still don't have a Chromebook on the first day of school, the school and/or your teachers will provide directions to you on how to get one.
    • Personal devices are not able to connect to our networks, so you must have a school Chromebook.
  • First day of School is September 1st. On the first day, all students enter through the main entrance. Doors will open at 7:30am on the first day. Breakfast is available in the cafeteria. The First Class bell rings at 7:55. The dismissal bell rings at 3:30.
  • Starting September 2nd (the second day of school):
    • 9th and 10th grade will enter through the Field House doors
    • 11th and 12th grade will enter through the Main Entrance doors
    • Field House and Main Entrance doors will open at 7:45 daily

      • The Breakfast Door opens at 7:30. Students coming for Breakfast must go straight to the cafeteria and remain in the cafeteria until they are dismissed to go to their first block class.
  • If you are a new student and don't have a schedule yet on September 1st, please go to the IMC (library) on the 2nd floor to meet with your counselor. Counselors will be available in the library on the first day.
  • If you are a student who wants to request a schedule change on September 1st, you must make an appointment with your counselor by emailing your counselor directly. If you go to the IMC instead of making an appointment with your counselor, you will be sent to your first block class.
