We encourage you to use the Skyward App!
Parents/Guardians ~ To authorize and excuse an absence, a late arrival to school, or an early departure*, please notify the Attendance Office, preferably before 10:00 AM the day of. Family Access is the most efficient way for BHS to receive your request; remember to enter date and times to bypass the automatic defaults. Or, call the Attendance line.
Students ~ Please also read Parents/Guardians section above. Late arrival to school ~ Go to the Attendance Office to get checked in and to get the pink tardy pass that you need to give to your teacher. (Signing in is mandatory for safety reasons.)
Leaving school early* ~ Go to the Attendance Office before class to get the green pass that you need to give to your teacher. Leave class at the approved time and sign out at the Attendance Office before leaving campus. If you return, sign back in as soon as you are on campus. (Signing out/in is mandatory.)
*If you belong to a BHS sport/club or classs that is leaving early or will be absent all day, your parent/guardian does not need to notify the Attendance Office, you do not need to get a green slip or sign out. The BHS coach/advisor or teacher will give BHS a list of students and attendance will be adjusted based on the approved departure time.
