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!

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.
