Week of February 13, 2022

Belleville High School

Greetings, BHS Families, this is Week #4 of Semester 2.


ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE AWARDS:

This Friday, we will be celebrating all students who worked to achieve a 3.0 or better Grade Point Average. Students who achieved Honors (3.0 to less than 3.3333) will receive a certificate of achievement. Students who achieved 3.3333 or greater will be invited to a Pancake Breakfast on Friday. We are so proud of our Tigers, and are excited for this opportunity to celebrate their success!


MASK MANDATES:

Students and staff are still required to wear masks in the building. While local counties may be discussing changes to mask requirements, please remember that any changes in our district will be communicated directly - not via social media. Please stay tuned for future updates.


“Where’s my stuff?”

Parents and Guardians, you would not believe the amount of clothing, bags, and shoes that students have left behind that ended up in the Lost & Found - just from 1st semester! We sorted through it all and have asked students to retrieve their belongings, yet we still have three (3) 8 foot tables of clothing near the main office. Next, the items will be given away for free - first in the building, then items will be donated to GoodWill. If you believe your student has missing items (especially from gym classes), please have them stop by the tables outside the main office.


BATHROOM ABUSE:

There have been questions about bathroom policies since the TikTok challenges that had some think it fun to trash the bathrooms (ripping off soap dispensers & toilet roll holders, plugging toilets, kicking stall doors in, etc.). While this may have only been a few students, it affects all. No student deserves to walk in and see things in disorder or disrepair. This behavior cost the school & district hundreds, if not thousands of dollars, including additional custodial hours for cleaning and repairing/replacing items). As a solution, students have since been required to log themselves in before going to the restroom during class time. Also, restrooms have been limited to only one or two students during class time. This new policy has produced an overwhelmingly positive result - a complete turnaround of these unseemly behaviors. We will soon move to electronic passes, which will eliminate the physical signing in altogether. We appreciate our students' understanding and cooperation to resolve this issue. If you have any questions or concerns, please direct them to Mrs. Crockett’s office.


TRYOUTS!

The following clubs are seeking new members. Encourage your student to try out if they express any interest. You never know what could come from a new experience!

  • Interested in boys or girls GOLF this season? Please see Coach Martin in the cafeteria during ALL 3 lunches on Monday, February 14th.


  • Interested in RUNNING TRACK this spring? There will be a brief meeting followed by conditioning from 2:15pm-4:15pm on Monday, February 14 at the upstairs indoor track. Please bring workout clothes and have rides ready by 4:15pm.


Senior Families (c/o 2022): Please do not pay for college applications, Mrs. Lucy has fee waivers in her office. Please reach out to her in the counseling office to find out what’s available.


Dismissal Bells: As an FYI, all students will be dismissed from the building at 2:04 pm. We no longer have staggered dismissal bells.
