Start of School Information 2017-18

August 09, 2017

Classes will begin at the Jr. Sr. High School on Wednesday, August 16th.  The first day of school will see shortened class periods with classes starting at 8:04 am and dismissing at 11:45 am.  There will NOT be lunch on the first day of school.  On August 17th, the Jr. Sr. High School students will have their first full day of school (8:04 am to 3:21 pm).

New Student/Seventh Grade Orientation

New student/seventh grade orientation will take place on Tuesday, August 15th in the Commons Room at 10 AM.  If this time does not work for you please let Ms. Tetschner or Mr. Owen know and we will work to arrange another time for you.  

Student Schedules

Student registration took place last spring.  If there is a desire to change a schedule or to register for the first time please contact Ms. Tetschner.  All schedules will be final on Thursday.

New Students

New students need to check with the school in regard to permanent records.  Parents need to request these records from the school their child last attended.  This request usually requires that you fill out a form.  this should be done as soon as possible to make your child's transition a smooth one.  Call the school if you have questions and we encourage all new students to come and visit school before the first day of classes. 

Jr. Sr. High School Day

The school day will begin at 8:04 am with a bell ringing at 8 am to alert students that it is time to go to class.  It is imperative that our students get to school on time.  Students who are habitually tardy will be required to make up time after school.  Parents, please help in encouraging yor children to get to school on time.  The school day will end at 3:21 pm.

BHS will continue to have an Encore Period that begins at 3:23 pm.  This is a 30 to 35 minute period at the end of the school day, where all teachers are available to give students extra help.  No sport practices can take place during the Encore Period.  If a student has a grade below a C or has an incomplete they are required to attend the Encore Period.  Failure to report to a required Encore Period will be an automatic detention.  It is important that we encorage all students to take advantage of the Encore Period.

Activity Tickets

Activity tickets are available to be purchased.  Student ticket price is $15, Adult ticket price is $35, and Family ticket price is $85.  Activity tickets will allow the ticket holder into all home activities except for Varsity Tournaments.  

Golden Age Passes

Golden Age passes are available for residents of the Burwell Public School District who are 65 years old or older.  Please stop by the High School office with proof of age and a Golden Age Pass will be issued to you.  This pass will work the same as the Activity Ticket mentioned above.  This is our way of saying thanks for your supporting our district.  

School Insurance

Optional insurance is available through Student Assurance Services Incorporated.  Your child will be given a packet on the first day of school or on the first day of fall practices so you can review this insurance.  This insurance is not managed by the school, rather it is a service offered to parents who may want to supplement existing insurance or who may not have insurance.  If you already have insurance, please contact yor current agent before purchasing these policies so that you do not waste your premium dollars duplicating insurance coverage.
