Principal's Message

Parents, if you have not yet enrolled for the 23-24 school year, please complete that as soon as possible! Click here to enroll your returning student. Remember that you cannot pay fees for the following school year until July so at this time, we just need all students enrolled. Thank you!

Please note what was added in the April Board Brief:

Mr. Powers presented a change to the 2022-2023 Academic Calendar as a first read:

a. Recommended making May 26, 2023 ½ day collaboration and ½ day workday instead of a ½ day of school and ½ workday.

b. Students’ last day of school will be a full day on Thursday, May 25, instead, if approved by the BOE in May.

One more note for parents - Several youth camps are being offered by our BLHS head coaches this summer. Please see the flyer attached to this email for all camp information and coach contacts.

To all parents who chose to opt-in to our social-emotional assessment

Dear Parent/Guardian:

As you know, we are committed to supporting all students’ academic, social, and emotional learning. Part of this work involves teaching social and emotional competencies—the everyday skills students need to interact positively with others and to participate successfully in school.

Social and emotional competencies include things like picking up on how other people are feeling, understanding other points of view, resolving social conflicts, and managing emotions. Among their many benefits, these competencies help students do better academically—in fact, social and emotional learning programs are associated with academic test scores and help develop employability skills.

With competencies such as math and reading, assessments help guide what and how we teach, and give us insight into how well students are learning. For the same reasons, students complete the Social and Emotional Competence Survey, a brief survey, in which students rate how frequently they engage in behaviors reflecting social and emotional competence.

The Social and Emotional Competence Survey provides information about how well children are able to use important social-emotional skills. In addition to this survey, there are many other ways of ascertaining student social-emotional skill level, including parent, teacher, and peer assessments and school records, that can and should be considered in conjunction with survey data to develop a holistic view of student social-emotional strengths and needs. The Social and Emotional Competence Survey is a teaching tool we use to do the best work we can with all our students.

A summary of your student’s performance on SELweb survey results during the winter of the 2022-23 school year can be found in your student’s portfolio in Skyward. The portfolio is accessed by logging into Skyward and choosing “Student Portfolio” from the menu on the left. The results will be labeled as SEL Survey - Winter 2022. We ask that you review your student’s report so we can collaborate with you to continue nurturing your student’s growth. Within the report you will also find a guide to help interpret your student’s scores.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Jess Zimmerschied, Counselor, by email at


The Basehor-Linwood CARE Team
