BH-BL is excited to announce that it has expanded its award-winning website by adding two new features--Parent Resources and Community Announcements--to the Community Corner section. Parent Resources is dedicated to providing parents with information about everything from Annual Notices to Transportation, and everything in between, in one convenient place. Community Corner is a webpage where community-related announcements and event flyers are posted for public viewing as a way to further strengthen the school and community connection. Use the Community Corner navigation bar on the homepage to access these pages.
Last year parents asked that the middle school daily announcements be available as an SNN category. We listened and created that option. We urge all parents of middle school-age children to sign up for the SNN MS Daily Announcement category so they can be in the know about school events, happenings and notices. How to sign up.
Great news! We are offering an exciting new option to help make your life easier. MySchoolBucks.com® is an online system that will allow you to set up a school lunch program account for your children, deposit funds into your children’s accounts, review purchases, check balances and more. You’ll even get an email poke when account balances are low. Additionally, there’s a mobile app that allows parents to view and replenish their child’s account using a smartphone.
