Good Afternoon BHS Tiger Families,
We hope that you are well. This is a strange and difficult time for all of us, and the entire staff at Belleville High School is working to provide resources for our students to help them to continue to build their skills throughout this extended period of time away from school.
You can expect resources from your teachers posted to their Google Classrooms. In addition, you can find other resources on our district website. Khan Academy is an excellent resource for students. Career exploration would be another great activity during this time. Underclass students have just selected their courses for the 2020-2021 school year. This would be a great time to discuss those choices and post high school plans. Please email your counselor if you have any questions or concerns about next year’s course selections.
We appreciate your patience as we work through this unprecedented situation. Several decisions will need to be made by leaders in the Michigan Department of Education as far as making up time, earning credit, and grading students for this semester. We are monitoring all communication from the MDE and will keep you advised.
At this time, we do not know what will happen with school-related events that have been scheduled. As you know, everything has been cancelled through April 12th. As soon as decisions are made regarding Spring Testing, NHS Induction, Prom, Commencement and other BHS events, we will communicate them to you.
We want to do our best to meet the needs of our extended BHS Family. If there is any way we can help, please reach out and we can connect you with the services you may need. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.If you have any questions, please email me or your child's teacher directly. They will be responsive to your requests for information.
Be safe and stay healthy.
