Meet the Teachers Night

Our annual Meet the Teachers Night will take place on Wednesday, September 19th beginning at 6:00 pm. You will have the opportunity to meet your child’s teachers and learn more about their coursework and expectations for the year.

After a brief principal's welcome you will cycle through each period on your child’s schedule. Classes will meet for approximately 11 minutes and they will be marked by a bell tone to signify the end of the period. At that time you will move to the next class. Please bring a copy of your child’s schedule. If you have two or more children attending the school, you will need to plan in advance which classes to attend.


Here is a link to the schedule for the evening:

Parent Pick Up and Drop Off

Thank you for your response to the drop off and pick up email I send out earlier this week.


One more item, which may allow for a better traffic flow in the morning. You can allow your child/children to exit the vehicle at any point along the blue curb. This would reduce the backup that occurs on most mornings.


Additionally, please do not use the student lot for drop off and pick up. We have many new drivers in that lot and our goal is to keep that space free of extra traffic to prevent congestion and to promote safety.

Online Backpack

We realize that high school students do not often remember to tell you about school and community events. Be sure to check out the Bellingham school district’s “BackPack” site to view recent/upcoming important BHS school information and community flyers.
