To All BAHC Students & Families,
As you are aware, we are in the third and final marking period of the term. This is the grade that will determine if you earn credit towards graduation. It is important that you attend every class, every day, participate and complete all of your assignments. We want to ensure that all students have a successful term.
In order to support all students in this success, we will be implementing a few structures and supports…
ATTENDANCE and LATENESS (to school and to class)
Students must be in school every day and attend every class on time. Students who are late to class must sign the late book for that class. If prompted, students must get a yellow late pass by room 456 or 355. Please note that parents will be notified of lateness and the lateness will be on student records.
TRAFFIC PATTERNS/TRANSITIONING FROM ONE LOCATION TO ANOTHER
Entering the building: Students enter via the MAIN entrance and proceed to staircase M/N (by the elevator) to the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th floor directly to class. Students who enter and have their first class in the Gymnasium may walk directly to the Gymnasium on the first floor.
Moving from one class to the next, cafeteria, or library: ALL classrooms, the gymnasium, the clinic, the cafeteria, and the library are accessible via staircase H/J (by rooms 254, 354, and 454). Students must only use this stairwell to access all classes.
Exiting the Building: Students must use stair case H/J down to the first floor and go out through the main entrance on Gun Hill Road.
At no point should students be in any other part of the building. Being in another school’s space is considered trespassing and is subject to disciplinary action.
Students must have a pass to leave a classroom. If asked, students must show their pass to any adult who requests to see it. No passes will not be issued the first ten minutes and last ten minutes of the period.
Students are to be in the cafeteria or a Lunch & Learn classroom. Lunches are delivered to the Lunch & Learn rooms.
In the cafeteria, students must remain seated. No sitting on tables.
At no time are students permitted to leave the school building during lunch. Also, no food can be ordered for delivery. Students may bring their own lunch to school.
All students have been issued YONDR pouches to refrain from using their phones during the school day. Cell phones must not be used in class at any time.
ACADEMIC SUPPORT & TUTORING
Students who need assistance with any of their school work can attend Lunch & Learn, After School Tutoring, or Saturday School. Please speak with your Counselor, teachers, or administrators if you need assistance.
NEED TO TALK TO SOMEONE?
This time of year can be stressful and emotional. If students need to speak to someone, our Social Worker, Counselors, and staff are available.
