Each EOC exam will count for 10% of the student’s grade for the semester in the designated course. These exams are designed to directly assess the content learned in the class. All exams will be completed online. Students and parents will be promptly notified of results since these scores will affect semester grades.

Attendance and promptness are critical. We need all students here for assigned testing sessions. Late students will not be allowed to enter testing sessions. Please don’t schedule appointments during the assigned testing sessions.

BHS students will have an opportunity to attend both games by signing up for the pep bus in the high school office. Students who attend must be in good academic standing with attendance above 95%. It will be $10 for the ticket to the game and to cover the bus costs. The bus will leave at 10:30 a.m. and return to BHS at approximately 5:30 p.m.
