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." For your convenience, we will begin checking our current 8th graders proof of residence at Open House on April 10th in our main office. You must provide documentation to prove residence before your child may start school at BHS. Below is the check off sheet that tells you what you need to provide to us.

In just about any dresser drawer, one can find a pair of eyeglasses that are no longer being used. That same pair of eyeglasses can change another person's life. Imagine if you could help a child read. An adult succeed in his job. A senior maintain her independence. And provide a community with more opportunities to grow and thrive. The Benicia Lions Club is collecting eyeglasses which are distributed to people in need in developing countries where they will have the greatest impact. They have generously given us a donation box for our front office for used eyeglasses you no longer need. Lions accept prescription and reading glasses, sunglasses and plastic and metal frames. Children's glasses are especially needed.
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.
The district STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) Program has openings for the 13-14 school year. If you are interested in this academic before and/or after school program for your student, you can call 747-8367 or email June Regis at email@example.com.
