I hope that everyone had a great spring break! We are on the home stretch for this school year!

As we prepare for the ending of the school year we will be assessing some areas where students suffered learning loss during the COVID pandemic and we will be offering a few different options to provide opportunities to gain some of the losses!

We will offer two summer school sessions for students that loss credits due to various reasons. This will be a great time for students to catch up on the credits that were not earned. The sessions will be the following:

June 1-30

July 7-30

The exact times will be decided once we get a final count of those students that will attend summer school.

We are also going to offer an SAT prep course in the lead up to the next few SAT test dates. The exact details will be published in the near future! If you plan to take the SAT in May or June please see Mrs. McNease soon about signing up! This is free for BCHS students!
