School nurse located in HS Science Room 24

If you are planning a trip to the school nurse for a yellow sports clearance form on Friday, Aug. 11 or Monday, Aug. 14 you will need to go to Science Room 24 located in the high school's science wing. Please enter the high school campus via the Kingsley Road entrance (the Lakehill Road entrance remains closed due to construction) and park in the front lot. Walk through the Walter Reid gates and proceed to the back of the building to the first set of doors on the science wing. Thank you for your patience as we continue our school renovations project.

HS campus & MS parking lot closed due to construction

If you've driven by the BH-BL High School lately you've likely seen the signs stating the campus is closed. This is because we are in the homestretch of the 2013 voter-approved renovations project (phase 3) and crews are working diligently to ensure the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math) addition is complete and ready for students in September. At the middle school, the bus loop is open but the main parking lot is closed to give construction crews space while they renovate the science labs and update classrooms. [FULL LIST OF PROJECTS]
