Parents/Guardians:

On Tuesday, October 26th, BHS Team 2022 seniors will participate in a “Preparing for College and Career Day” on October 26, 2021. Senior students should not need to report to the BHS campus on this day.

What is Preparing for College and Career Day?
This day, which typically has been dedicated to administering the PSAT to all 10th and 11th grade students at BHS, also offers programming for 12th graders. This day will take place on October 26, 2021.

BHS Seniors will be selecting from two options to explore or confirm their post-secondary plans. Students will either visit a college/university (in-person or virtual) or complete a job shadow experience on this day. If a student does not complete this form or chooses not to participate in one of the two options provided, they will be required to attend school that day. The college visit would not count towards the two (2) college visit days each student is allotted for Senior year.

Students who do not participate in a college visit or job shadow experience will go through a number of different college and career preparation sessions and service learning opportunities with our Team 2022 staff at BHS. Their "normal" schedule of course will not take place this day.

Please complete this form by October 8, 2021.

Here's the link to the form "BHS Team 2022 - Preparing for College and Career Day - October 26, 2021":

FAFSA Night on November 4th

On Thursday, November 4th, BHS will be hosting a FAFSA Night in which financial aid experts from INvestEd will be here to assist families in filing the 2022-2023 FAFSA. Families may come in anytime between 3:30 and 7:30 p.m. for assistance. It will take place in the Senior Academy Cafeteria and entrance is through Door 12 of the Senior Academy.

The 2022-2023 FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is available online starting October 1, 2021 at www.fafsa.gov . Completing the FAFSA is the most important step in the financial aid process and determines eligibility for both state of Indiana and federal aid. The FAFSA requires your 2020 tax return and April 15, 2022 is the state deadline to file the FAFSA. However, many colleges/universities have their own FAFSA filing deadline dates. It is important to check financial aid websites of colleges/universities to ensure their FAFSA deadline is met.

For a FAFSA Checklist and guide for creating your FSA ID (Federal Student Aid), visit www.investedindiana.org/fafsa .

Governor’s Order Changes Quarantine Protocols

Late Wednesday afternoon, Governor Holcomb issued an executive order changing the quarantine rules for schools that require masks. Students who have had close contact to a positive case when they are unmasked (i.e., during lunch) will still have to quarantine and families are contacted separately about the next steps. When a student is a close contact to a positive case when both parties are wearing masks (i.e., on the bus or in class), the student will not have to quarantine. The family will still be contacted and will be asked to monitor the student for symptoms while they continue to attend school. Please contact the school nurse Ryan Elam or Melanie Carrel if you have further questions.

Character Education

Mr. Patterson and Miss Griffin will have the privilege of visiting several classrooms to facilitate September’s and October’s character trait of RESPECT. During these lessons, students will have a chance to reflect on the various ways they show respect to themselves, others, and the world. The lesson will conclude by learning healthy and safe ways to respond when they believe they have been disrespected.

DAILY NORMS AND EXPECTATIONS

Operational Reminders

Lanyards and ID's should be worn throughout the school day. Our students should be aware that if they borrow a lanyard prior to the 7:50 bell it will not be logged against them the first two times. Please mention this to your student and have them see Ms. Harrison whenever they forget their lanyard. To replace a lost lanyard would be $5 ($3 for lanyard, $2 for ID).

Dress Code Expectations

Clothing should be so constructed and worn in a manner that is not unduly revealing. Tops that may NOT be worn include tank tops, muscle shirts, tube tops, halter tops, backless shirts, tops with spaghetti straps, sheer or fishnet shirts, and cut-offs or other tops which show midriff. Plunging neck lines and excessive exposure is not acceptable. Our gauge for necklines will be 4"; the length of four fingers. All shorts, skirts, and pants should not be unduly revealing, using the fingertip rule as a guide.


Students who are in violation of our BHS dress code will be sent to the team office to put on school assigned attire or call a parent/guardian to bring them a change of clothes.

Excessive tardies or absences to school or class

It is very important for students to be on-time and attend school. Students with excessive tardies or absences will jeopardize their privilege to attend homecoming and/or prom.

Families

Please see attached for this week’s newsletter that was sent to seniors as a follow up from visiting English classes for a college application process presentation. If you have questions regarding items in the newsletter, please let me know.

Naviance Test Prep

We have SAT Test Prep available in Naviance. The Naviance SAT Test Prep can be found on the home page of Naviance under “Resources to Get Ready.” We highly encourage students to take advantage of the SAT prep tool to prepare themselves for the SAT. A prep guide is available in Naviance in the section labeled “From My School.” Also visit the SAT and ACT websites at www.collegeboard.org and www.act.org for additional test prep resources available.

ACT/SAT

This is a reminder to get your student signed up for the ACT and/or the SAT this school year. Students can sign up for the ACT at act.org and the SAT at collegeboard.org. Due to some colleges requiring a writing score, we encourage students to take the writing portion of the ACT/SAT the first time they take the test. Please reach out to the counselors if you have any questions.

NUTRITION SERVICES

FREE & REDUCED APPLICATIONS COULD OFFER CURRICULAR MATERIALS & OTHER SUPPORT

While meals are free for all students again this year, it is important for any family who may qualify for free and reduced meals to complete the application. A new application must be completed each year. Those who qualify may receive assistance for curricular materials and other fees in addition to other support. Follow the link for more information.
