Ice storm expected to arrive today has potential to impact afternoon dismissal

Meteorologists are predicting an ice storm for the area that will arrive this afternoon possibly during the district's normal dismissal hours. At this time, all BH-BL schools are operating on a regular schedule. However, school officials are concerned about the timing of the storm and its potential impact on student safety. A decision will be made by 11 am if the afternoon dismissal schedule needs to be altered or can remain the same. Student safety is a priority and we want to keep families informed so we encourage parents to check the BH-BL website, social media channels, and SNN (email) today for updates.
