In an effort in keeping BHS a safe and secure school, please do not open or wedge doors during the school day. All doors, except a main entrance lobby door, are locked at 8:15 am. After 8:15 am, students should only use the main lobby door to enter and exit the building. Please do not use any other doors during the school day. At the beginning and end of the school day, students may use any of the outside doors to enter and exit the building.
Students and Staff should be reminded to LOCK their bikes on the bike racks. We have observed numerous bikes not locked.
TRESPASSING There have been many reports of student cutting thru resident’s back yards and crossing the railroad tracks to get to the High School. This is considered trespassing and the Belmont Police and MBTA police will be patrolling the area and if caught trespassing laws may be enforced.
Crossing the Commuter Rail tracks is not only highly dangerous but is also considered trespassing. Trespassers are subject to substantial fines and arrest by MBTA Police and Belmont Police.
New to the school in common areas are recycling barrels for beverages. Screw all caps back on before recycling. Blue bins are for paper and Green bins are for plastic, aluminum or glass.
Students are encouraged to lock the lock on their lockers. If you are having trouble with your lock/locker please see Mrs. Ouellette in the main office.
