BCHS Traffic Pattern
EFFECTIVE SEPTEMBER 7
Student safety is our top priority! Therefore, the traffic pattern has changed a little this year. Please note that during the hours of 9:30 am and 3:30 pm, the Cardinal Ridge gate off Renfro will be closed. Student drop-off and visitors must enter through the Hurst entrance. Prior to 9:30 am and after 3:30 pm, student drop-off and visitors must enter through the Cardinal Ridge entrance. See the map below. Please let us know if you have any questions.
Help us spread the word!
Attendance is vital to success!
Do you need a student parking pass?
Crime Stoppers and Friends for Life
Please take a moment to review the BISD Safety and Security website to learn about our safety programs, including Crime Stoppers and Friends For Life.
BISD knows that students see and hear things. A vital step in prevention is early identification of potential threats and intelligence gathering. In partnership with Tarrant County Crime Stoppers and Friends for Life, BISD provides students with a platform to submit anonymous tips. Students are encouraged to report information that is criminal, threatening, inappropriate, or potentially harmful on topics that may include:
Students are able to anonymously submit tips through a phone app, at www.469tips.com or by calling Crime Stoppers 817-469-8477.
Our students learned about these programs when Mrs. Alley visited their classes earlier this year, and they may come home with questions.
If you have questions, feel free to email or call our office.
To check your child's account balance or make a payment, please click here. You will need your child's student ID number (the code they type in in the cafeteria) to be able to access your child's account.
College Fever is in the Air!
It is exciting times at BCHS for our juniors as you begin to plan for after high school. Remember that you have the opportunity to have two days excused to allow you to visit colleges with your parents. In order to be excused and not count towards attendance, the date of the absence must be pre-approved. Here is the link to the form for approval. You can also find it under Parents/Students on the BCHS website. It is called College Absence Form!
