Online registration is open for the 2021-2022 school year and must be completed for all new and returning students; visit this site created to provide helpful information and resources for you: Boyd ISD Online Registration. Please note campus Registrars will be on summer break during some parts of June and July; you will be contacted when they are back in the office if additional information is needed.

Please note the following:

  • Upload all documents including proof of residency to the parent portal. (Registration will not be accepted without proper documentation).

21-22 Student Parking

Parents and Students,

For the 2020-2021 school year, all student-drivers will be required to display a parking tag in their vehicle for the duration of the time their vehicle is parked on BISD campus grounds. To ensure student safety to the greatest extent possible, it is critical that we account for all vehicles that will be parked on campus. Click HERE to access the BHS Driving & Parking Regulations Form.

Students will be able to sign up to receive beginning August 2nd in the BHS front office. After the guardian and student have completed the form, the student must provide their driver license to be photocopied to be kept on file with campus administration. Once these two steps are completed, the student will receive their parking tag. Students receiving a parking tag are required to fill out the consent to drug testing form found on the 21-22 Ascender Registration. Parking permits will not be provided if the student does not consent to drug testing.

All students driving to campus must park their vehicles in the front parking lot. BISD has implemented additional cameras that account for the entirety of the BHS front parking lot. All students must enter the building before school begins through the front door or library entrance. After the tardy bell rings at 8:00am, the front door will be the only main entrance students will be able to access the building during the instructional day.

Thank you,

BHS Campus Administration

Dress Code

Dress and Grooming (All Grade Levels)

6. Student in grades 6-12 from wearing clothing made of spandex (i.e. jeggings, leggings, yoga pants, tights, etc.) or similar materials not covered by a skirt, shirt or dress that is shorter than fingertip length when standing with arms hanging loosely to the sides.

7. Clothing that has holes or tears above fingertip length exposing skin.

8. Leather/spike accessories, ear gauges and visible body piercing (the only body piercing ornamentation allowed is jewelry in students’ ears). Clear spacers are allowed in the side of the nose only.

9. Headgear in any building during school hours at principal’s discretion.

10. Students grades 4‐12 tank tops or other garments resembling men’s undershirts. Sleepwear, pajamas or any clothing designed to be undergarments. Garments that have a width less than 2 ½ inches at the shoulder. Undergarments may not be exposed.

If the principal determines that a student’s grooming or clothing violates the school’s dress code, the student will be given an opportunity to correct the problem at school. If not corrected, the student may be assigned to in-school suspension for the remainder of the day, until the problem is corrected, or until a parent or designee brings an acceptable change of clothing to the school. Repeated offenses may result in more serious disciplinary action in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct.
