New Student Enrollment
We are currently taking appointments to enroll new students for next school year. Please call our main office at 707-747-8340 and ask for the Registrar to set up an appointment. We only enroll students by appointment, no walk-in's. Below is the checklist of what you will need to bring to your appointment.
BUSD policy states "All sixth and ninth grade students shall be required to re-submit documentation for proof of residency at the start of the school year." All residency verifications will take place in our Attendance Office. You must provide documentation to prove residence before your child may start school at BMS and BHS. You can stop by anytime between 8am-12pm or 1pm-4pm.

DMV Change of Address
Law states that you must notify DMV within 10 days of changing your address. There is no charge to change your address, and you may notify DMV by any of the following ways:
If you do 2 or 3 above, type or write in ink your new address on a small piece of paper, sign and date it. Carry this piece of paper with your license. Do not tape or staple the change of address information to your driver license.
Single Period Absences
On occasion we have a single period absence for a student and a dialer goes out. Unfortunately, you have no way of knowing that it was for a single period and it may alarm you because you knew your student was indeed in school. The one quick way of checking where and when the student was marked absent is by looking in Power School. The protocol for this type of scenario is that we verify directly with the teacher that marked them absent. Once the teacher looks into it, they then let us know if it was teacher error or if the student may have been late etc. and we can then correct their attendance. If you check back in Power School in a few days their attendance should be cleared. If not feel free to call us then so we can look into it further.

Required T-Dap Booster
Proof of a T-Dap booster shot after age 7 is required by law for all students entering 7th grade at BMS. Without this proof, your child will have delays in receiving their class schedule. If you are uncertain whether your student has received this immunization please contact your health care provider.
If your child requires medication during the school day, we must have a medical form signed by a doctor on file. You can print out the forms from the links below.
