** REQUEST TO ALL SENIORS WHO APPLIED EARLY TO COLLEGE AT THIS TIME - Since BHS 1st quarter grades are being issued on Tuesday 11/21, we will not be able to start sending out these grades to college admissions offices until after Thanksgiving break. We are committed to doing our best to get all finalized 1st quarter grades out by Tuesday 11/27. We recognize this is close to decision deadlines for early college applicants. Please be sure all of your work is finalized for any classes (no incompletes, etc) before you leave for Thanksgiving break. This will help us to send out your grades in the most efficient time possible.
** As always, contact your counselor if you have questions or concerns about the process (email or stop by/ leave a note).
In addition, do not hesitate to contact Mr. Libenzon, BHS College Counselor, with any questions regarding the application process. He is available all day every Monday in the College-Career Center in Room 279, plus his office in Room 162.
