The BCHS Weekly Update

Stay current on what's happening at BCHS through our Weekly Update! If there is anything we can do for you or your student, do not hesitate to let us know!

Our Vision - We are Committed to Excellence and Success in All we do!

Our Focus for 2019-2020 - Expect Excellence Everyday, It Is The Redskin Way!

Spring Break - April 6 - 10

April 6 - April 10, is spring break. We all will take a much needed break from E Learning.

Most all of our students are engaged in their work, they need a break technology and screen time.

However, if your student is not up-to-date in their classes, this will be a great time to for them to catch up. E Learning will pick back up on Monday, April 13, 8:00 AM sharp. Be sure your student is ready to go.

Don't Be Fooled

Parents, we have students who have yet to check into their teachers classroom or complete work in the class.

Do not take your students word they are working, take a moment to check their work. We have found in speaking with parents this to be true.

Teachers will be entering grades in Power School for work completed and work not completed. The grades will be current and up to date as of April 3, 2020 by April 13, 2020 when we return to school.

What we do not want to happen is for your student to fail a class because they refused to work. One of two things will occur, they will have to repeat the class next year or, if they are a senior they may not graduate.

They may need not need a particular class for graduation, however failing a class will impact their GPA and their HOPE Scholarship.

If your student is struggling and needs help, let us know. If the teacher is not responding, let me know. mblankenship@bryan.k12.ga.us

We are here to help you and your student. Our desire is for all students to succeed. It takes all of us to make that happen.

Senior Updates

Graduation - Graduation is a highlight of the senior year. We are disappointed and sad that we will not be able to host our normal graduation ceremony. HOWEVER, we are working with our district leadership to organize a graduation ceremony. Several of you have sent suggestions, we appreciate those. As we know more, we will share with you. Thank you for your patience as we work through this process.

Senior Honors Night - We do not know if we can make this happen. HOWEVER, the BCHS leadership team is discussing possible ways to have a senior honors activity. We will update you when we know more.

Senior Spotlight - To honor each of our seniors, we will be doing Senior Spotlights on our website and social media after we return from spring break. We will be using your students senior picture and we would like to share information about your student. If you would, please be sure your senior answers a few questions on the Google Doc, Class of 2020 Spotlight.

Prom 2020

Due to the COVID 19 and the closure of school facilities for the remainder of the year, we regretfully must cancel Prom 2020. Hopefully senoirs were able to attend as juniors, juniors you will be able to attend as seniors.

Seniors, you may want to consider a one year class reunion and create a prom atomsphere!

Prom tickets will be refunded.

Refunds Coming

Due to cancellations and closures, we know there are things students paid for and will need a refund. We are currenlty collecting information for those students. Once we have the information and the shelter in place is lifted, we will work to get those refunds out to you.
