Welcome New Students and Families

BIS Turf Field

New to BIS?

Join us for a sneak peak before school starts. We will cover general information, take questions, introduce our awesome PTA Leadership, and give out schedules. Leadership Students will show students where their first period class is so everyone knows where to go on the first day of school.

Dear BIS Family & Friends,

Well we are just a one short week away from the start of the 2022-23 School Year! We are hard at work preparing for students and staff.


The first day of school is on Thursday, August 25th. School begins at 8:40 am and will dismiss at 12:10 pm. for the first day only. Students will meet each teacher Periods 1 through 7 on the first day. See the Bell Schedule attached. 2022-2023 BIS Bell Schedule. This year we are doing a pilot, starting school 10 minutes later than the elementary and high schools. We hope that this will help students get to school on-time. Our goal is to have all students in class on-time, everyday. Please help us get to our goal. We know life happens, but students coming to school late interrupts the teachers and all the students in their classroom.


This Friday, August 19th, we will be hosting a WELCOME to New Families and Students at 9:00am on the Turf Field at BIS. We are excited to meet all our new families!

Returning students can pick-up paper schedules at the front of school between 2:00pm and 4:00pm, on Friday, August 19th.

We hope to have your new PowerSchool log-in information to you before the start of school.


We have an awesome teaching staff at BIS. I have attached a staff list here and highlighted the "New to BIS" teachers. Many of them are coming to BIS with many years of experience, We hope you will welcome our new and returning staff and celebrate an exciting start to the 2022-2023 school year.


We have had a great deal going on construction-wise at BIS this summer.

  • Every lock on campus has been changed.

  • Multi-Purpose Room (MPR) New floors have been installed

  • Auditorium Structural Improvements continue. Completion ETA is Winter 2022

  • Construction of the Quad and the Student Recreation Center (SRC) continues. Completion ETA is Spring 2023.

Also, be sure to sign-up for PTA. We could not provide all the fun events for our students with out our Parent Volunteers and PTA.


We look forward to seeing you on Friday, either for the Welcome to New Student Event or when returning students come by to pick up schedules. Be sure to grab a home Covid test!


Warmly,

Covid Update-Please take a home test


I am sure you have seen communications from the Superintendent that masking is still strongly recommended by our county for students and staff. At BIS, masks are encouraged to be worn indoors for students and staff who have been exposed to Covid.


We are asking all students to test prior to returning to school.

We will have home tests to give out when students pick-up their schedules on Friday.
