Heron Happenings – Sept 21- 27

We had a busy week at BCHS. The weather caused us to have a to have a virtual learning day on Friday as well as many athletic cancellations. However, we were able to honor our Seniors on Friday night.

Our football team played hard on Friday night, but came up just short.

Heron Happenings – Sept. 14 – 20

Losing one of your own is never easy. Everyone grieves in different ways. The one thing I know as a fact this week is how much we will miss Captain Danny Norris. He was an integral part of the faculty at both BCHS and BCMS. His jovial and loving spirit is missed. Also, his unique skill set when it comes to keeping our students and faculty safe. I have no doubt that Capt. Norris would have put his life on the line to protect any person in our buildings, but more importantly he continually focused on building positive relationships with students. With the hope that he would be able to turn a trouble young person into a child that can see the bright side. I have watched him multiple times talk to students that were in precarious situation and did so with love and understanding — while also being firm!

Captain Norris – 902 – you are thankful that you were a part of our lives! You will be missed, but I have no doubt you would be telling us to press on and help as many people as we can! We will continue that mission!

Our students have continued to press on with their school work and I could not be more happy with their progress! Our teachers have taken all the bumps so seamlessly that you would never realize that we are in a worldwide pandemic.

The weather stopped many of our athletic events this week. The football team lost a tough game to a much bigger school, SE Bullock. The JV football team defeated Charlton 6-0. Our cross country and softball teams continued to work to get better!

Our CTSO’s (clubs) are starting to ramp up some of their meetings. I strongly encourage parents to talk with their children about joining a club!

Please continue to remember that academics are our main focus. I will make you one promise – if you put in full effort in your class work you will pass those classes. Life is about effort, the more effort you put in the more you get out of each situation! Work hard and great things will occur!

We had class officer elections this week! There will be a second vote next week! We are proud of all of our students.

Please remind your students that they need to go directly to first block when they arrive on campus. The tardy bell rings at 7:55.

You must have a parking pass to park on campus.

Heron Happenings – Aug. 10-16

We had a marvelous first two days of school at BCHS. Our traditional learners did a great job with their movement from class to class and sanitization throughout the school. Our virtual learners begin their education with our virtual teachers. This year was certainly unique, but nonetheless we are excited to have our students back on campus and our entire faculty has worked hard to get everything in place for a great school year.

I do strongly encourage students to wear a mask when you cannot social distance (6 ft) – such as; when your teacher is helping you at your desk, walking from class to class, or other times you cannot social distance.

You guys did a magnificent job following the protocols in the lunchroom – I understand that as young adults you may not understand all the reasons by the school guidelines, but I appreciate you guys following.

Other reminders; walk on the right side of the hallway and don’t stop when moving from one class to another, go directly to first block in the morning, and car pick-ups wait in the lunchroom until your name is called.

Our football scrimmage have been cancelled by GHSA, but the plan is to still have a regular season (starting Labor Day weekend). We are excited to see our fans, football players, Heron band, cheerleaders, and ROTC at the games!

Our cross country team will begin full blast and they plan to have a regular season.

Our softball team had two games cancelled this week due to weather, but they are at home on Monday and Tuesday this week (4:00 and 6:00) and away at Coffee on Thursday. Come support our girls on Monday and Tuesday – sports are back!

If you have any issues or need any assistance please feel free to contact us at the school, 462-5121.

If you are not feeling well, we encourage you to stay home. If your absence is short term we will allow you to continue your work on google classroom.

Heron Happenings – August 3-8

Whew… we have had a whirlwind of a last four and a half months! We are excited to begin the learning process for the 2020-2021 school year – both traditionally and virtually. This school year will provide some unique opportunities for the entire community, but the one thing I want to remind everyone is that our nest will stick together. We are in this together and we have to be a team to get through it.

Our faculty and staff have been working to plan for a clean and sanitary classroom, a top notch academic structure, and our nationally recognized extra-curricular activities! We are excited to have the Heron Nation back!

We do understand that there is a lot of apprehension in our society today and we will do our best to answer any and all questions that parents or students may have.

I do want to encourage students to wear a face mask when they cannot social distance (6 ft). This is not a mandatory ruling at BCHS, but it is a strong recommendation. This may ease the concerns of your fellow classmates and educators.

I also want to make sure that our students are respectful of all those around them, especially for those that decide to wear a mask or for those that decide not to wear a mask. We need to treat everyone with respect and have common decency to our classmates and faculty.

Also, please be cautious of others personal space, the secretions that may be spreading (body fluids – largely from mouth and nose). congregating in the hallways, and eating with the same group during lunch.

A few things for day one;

  1. Please go directly to first block (breakfast will be served in your classroom).
  2. Please self-check your temperature – if it does not meet the CDC or DPH guidelines for COVID then please stay home; we may check temperatures (as needed) https://dph.georgia.gov/covid-19-materials-and-resources
  3. If you have a mask and want to bring it, please do – we will have some available of those that don’t have one, but would like one
  4. Please be ready to sign into you google email (download app) and google classroom (download app as well)
  5. PLEASE CHECK YOUR POWERSCHOOL TO KNOW YOUR FIRST BLOCK
  6. We are excited to see you all!
  • Our nest will stick together! Herons are tough!
