Student Dismissal by Phone Call

To dismiss a student through a phone call, house secretaries must have a minimum of a two hour notice. If you do not allow a two hour notice to the house offices, a parent or guardian will have to come to the front office to sign the student out. More information can be found on the BISD Student Handbook.

House Principal Student and Classroom Support

BHS strives to build strong, positive relationships will all students and support our teachers and staff on campus. To better serve our students and staff, we have adjusted who and how our House Principals support others on our campus. House Principals now serve individual teachers by department, breakdown can be found below, in addition to serving the students within the House Office alpha.


Kappa House, serving last names A-G: Social Studies, Athletics, PE, and Foreign Language

Sigma House, serving last names H-Pa: English and CTE

Omega House, serving last names Pb-Z: Math, Science, Fine Arts, and CTE

A hall pass will be delivered to the students class during the time they signed up to donate. Sixteen year olds need to remember to bring their signed permission form. All donations are in the Carter Blood Care Buses in front of the Auditorium.

New Tardy System Began on Monday, 8/26

Student Conductor

Our new tardy system will be up and running for the morning of Monday, August 26th. If a student is late to their class, they will need to go to a tardy station and print a tardy pass. What is the benefit of this? Our goal is to provide open communication between BHS and our parents. If a student is tardy to a class, parents will instantly receive an email stating that they were tardy to make them aware.


Procedure for getting a tardy pass:

  • Go to one of the 5 tardy stations throughout campus,

  1. Just outside of the main office in the common area.
  2. On the Science Hall side of the Collaborative Learning Center.
  3. Kappa Office.
  4. Sigma Office.
  5. Omega Office.
  • Student will enter their Student ID (lunch code)
  • Tardy pass will be printed immediately
  • Student will show their pass to the teacher when they enter the room.



If a student is tardy to 7 or more times within a six weeks period, consequences will be assigned to the student and the assigned consequence will be printed on the tardy pass and will be emailed to a parent as well. More information on the BHS Tardy Policy can be found here.
