Message from Principal Casteel on Choosing Classes

Greetings Parents/Guardians:


It may be hard to believe but we are already preparing for the 2022-2023 school year. One of the first important steps in this annual process involves our students making decisions on which classes they will take next year. We believe these are very important decisions and I want to encourage parents, guardians and families to talk to your student and encourage them to take on a little challenge with a Dual Credit or Advanced Placement class.


We have been working with Equal Opportunity Schools (EOS), a non-profit organization, to increase student participation in challenging high school coursework so that they can be better prepared for college and beyond. As part of this work we have surveyed all of our students to better understand their perspectives and aspirations as well as reviewed all student academic records. Through this process we have identified many students who we believe are ready to benefit from AP and Dual Credit courses, based on their skills, aspirations, and interests and we will be working with them individually to encourage them to make this decision.


Advanced Placement and Dual Credit classes are more challenging classes but any student who attends class regularly and keeps up on their work can be successful. These classes bring college-level academic experiences into the high school classroom and allows them to earn college credit before they even graduate from high school. These are the kinds of classes that not only help your child stand out when they start to apply for college or a trade program but allow them to skip taking some of their beginning level college courses, saving time and money.


We are committed to the success of your child, and we believe that every student should take at least one advanced course during their high school career; to broaden their experience and give them a sense of achievement that will ultimately make them more successful. Registration for fall AP and Dual Credit classes begins the last week of March. Please encourage your student to explore this opportunity and sign up!


Sincerely,


Matt Casteel

Principal

Immunization Exclusion Day - February 16

Immunizations are required by state law for children and students in attendance at public and private schools, preschools, child care facilities and Head Start programs in Oregon. Nearly every facility that provides care for a child outside the home requires immunizations or a medical or non-medical exemption to remain enrolled.

Exclusion Day for this school year is Wednesday, February 16, for children who are not up-to-date on their vaccines. Students can see their health care providers, go to a school-based health center or contact the Washington County Health Department to find other vaccination locations.

While recommended, BSD doesn’t require students to be vaccinated for COVID-19. Students won’t be excluded on February 16 if they haven't received a COVID-19 vaccination.
More information, including a full list of required immunizations for the 2022-23 school year, can be found on the School Nursing and Student Health webpage.
