High school STEAM addition Grand Opening Ceremony, Sept. 6

All are welcome to join us for the ribbon-cutting ceremony & tour of the new facility, 6:30 p.m.

It was nearly a year ago when school leaders, the board of education, and renovations committee members came together to break ground on the high school’s new Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) addition. And today, we are nearing the final phase of the 2013 voter-approved referendum and will open the new wing for the start of the 2017-18 school year.  [READ MORE & VIEW PHOTO GALLERY]

HS campus & MS parking lot closed due to construction

If you've driven by the BH-BL High School lately you've likely seen the signs stating the campus is closed. This is because we are in the homestretch of the 2013 voter-approved renovations project (phase 3) and crews are working diligently to ensure the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math) addition is complete and ready for students in September. At the middle school, the bus loop is open but the main parking lot is closed to give construction crews space while they renovate the science labs and update classrooms. [FULL LIST OF PROJECTS]
