Beginning Sept. 1, 2016, students entering 12th grade must be vaccinated against meningococcal disease in order to attend school in New York State. Most students entering 12th grade received their first dose when they were younger and are now due for their second dose, or booster. The only students who will not need a second dose before 12th grade are those who got their first dose on or after their 16th birthday.
Send proof of Meningococcal vaccine date to the High School before the start of the school year to:

Please help support the Christopher Goody Memorial Fund by sponsoring Bob Muro in his marathon day of golf where he will attempt to complete as many holes as possible from sun-up to sun-down on Friday, June 24 at Eagle Crest Golf Course. The fund is named after BH-BL Middle School student who lost his life after he was struck by a car as he crossed the street to get the morning newspaper. The fund helps support BH-BL programs when the monetary need arises and the budget does not allow for it. Previous donations have supported student mentoring programs and activities. All of the money raised is for the memorial fund, with Eagle Crest Golf Course and Bob Muro sharing all other expenses required to put together the event. To make a donation, please contact HS Principal Mr. Brunson at email@example.com. Please make checks payable to BH-BL Schools.
