Brock High School Newsletter
BHS Information - Week of January 18th - January 23rd
Update: Since we are now taking attendance each period for both remote and face to face learners the library is available for remote learners before and after testing if needed to eliminate the need to rush back home to login so as to avoid an absence.
1. If you come to the campus to test in person please bring supplies such as pencils, pens, calculators and laptops and come in dressed according to the BISD dress code which is described beginning on page 51 of the Student Handbook.
2. If you plan to return to face to face learning please contact Mr. Joy or Mr. Atchley so they can notify teachers and attendance clerks.
Attendance - Spring Semester
Update to Attendance - When a student misses a class or classes, whether remote or face to face, that student needs to provide a note explaining the absence. Without a note the absence is recorded as unexcused. Please submit the note to Holly Snider in our front office.
Beginning January 6, 2021 our attendance will be taken according to the way it was prior to COVID-19. If your child is absent from face to face learning due to sickness, death or another extenuating circumstance, please send a note to school regarding the absence. Your child is welcome to log in and participate in online learning but will not be counted present for the day. After this semester, the gold sheet used at the high school will no longer be utilized.
If your child is absent and they are unable to participate in online learning, they will have one day per absence to make up any missed work.
Just a reminder for remote learners in grades 9-12, attendance will be taken as follows:
High School (8th - 12th Graders) - Students will follow their class schedule and attendance will be taken by Google Meets at the first of each period. Online college classes will not be expected to login for BHS attendance purposes.
Report Cards - 3rd Six Weeks/1st Semester report cards are now available for access through Parent Portal.
TEA Campus Report Cards - The campus report card from the TEA for Brock High School is now available at the following link.
Blood Drive - NHS is hosting a Carter Blood Drive on Thursday, January 21.
Sign up before school in the foyer. You must be 16 yrs old to give and 110 pounds. (Sixteen year olds need a parent permission form.)
It's a great way to help others!
Graduation Information - Graduation announcements will not be delivered until late February or early March. Graduation cap and gowns will be distributed in early May. Graduation is currently set for May 21st. As we learned last year, we will wait until the date is closer to see if the state will require us to alter our plans in any way. Right now, we plan an outdoor graduation but we will have to see what restrictions we may have on seating. If you have any questions regarding graduation, direct those to Teresa Wilcox at email@example.com.
Freshmen and Sophomores
Freshmen and sophomores who excel in academic events and have an interest in competing in UIL Journalism, Speaking, Science, Computer Science, Math, Number Sense, and/or Calculator. Our UIL Coaches would love for you to consider a schedule change to join their UIL Classes for the spring semester. They are always working towards a future "State" team. We need a few underclassmen to join the teams. Please stop by and see Teresa Wilcox or your counselor if you are interested. Parents/students may email her at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
BISD Calendar Updated - Brock Board of Trustees approved revisions to the 2020-21 school calendar. In an effort to provide our staff time to plan and develop lessons for face to face and remote instruction, 4 additional student holidays/teacher workdays have been added to the calendar. Those days are as follows and an updated calendar has been added to the district website:
- Friday, December 11th
Monday, February 1st
Friday, March 12th
Monday, April 19th
Because of this revision in our school calendar mid-year, Brock ISD is ready to support any parents that need child care on the above days. Campus Principals will be communicating with families as we get closer to each day to offer ways in which our district will provide care.
Tutoring – Teachers are available for tutoring and enrichment every morning from 7:45 – 8:05. Teachers are also available at lunch and after school by appointment.
