BCHS families: Students who live in walking distance of the HS, their belongings will be delivered Friday. The contents of gym lockers will not be part of this delivery. There will be a separate process announced at a later date for those items.

Please note: School buses will be making frequent stops throughout the community in order to deliver materials to students’ homes. In some instances, this could cause brief traffic delays. Thank you for your patience.

For student medications that are still at school, these have been secured and will be returned to families through a secure process on May 21 and May 27. Read more here:
