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.

Seniors should check their email regularly for new scholarships. Ms. Fields sends them directly to every seniors's school email address.

Senior Parents - The Brock Football Scholarship deadline has been extended to April 30! Ms. Fields sent the application back out to all seniors on their email. Applications need to be turned in to Ms. Fields by the new deadline.
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.
