Dear BHS Parents
A social media post was made recently by a student that we are addressing with all due diligence. This post was made in jest but the content demands that we take it seriously. Appropriate disciplinary measures will be taken in this and all incidents like it. That said, please talk to your kids about what they say and or post on social media. Their comments can have serious consequences. As always, the safety of all students is our foremost concern.
