There is a mandatory survey regarding your experiences using technology here at BHSS. This survey should be completed before you turn in your computer. The survey can be found in the 2018 Commencement course in Canvas.
Students may begin turning in their devices and chargers in the Large Group Room. All seniors and students not returning to South next year need to turn in their case. All returning students are to keep their cases over the summer. Please verify with your teachers the last day you will need your device before turning it in.
Juniors, please make sure that you have picked up a Kirkwood Photo Lab packet before the last day of school; for those students who weren't in SRT to pick one up early this week, you will find extras at the front desk or in Ms. Crespo's room (A122). The packet includes details for taking senior photos at Kirkwood Photo Lab this summer. You will also have the opportunity to take regular school photos at South in the fall. Senior photos taken by a company other than Kirkwood Photo Lab cannot be accepted for the yearbook next school year.
