Free Periods and Cancelled Classes

Students are expected to be present in the school between 8:00 am and 2:00 pm. In case of free periods at the start, middle or end of the day, students may spend that time in the cafeteria or the library. BHS does not call in a substitute until a teacher’s third consecutive day of absence. When a teacher is absent, class is cancelled and there will be a homework assignment posted on the classroom door. Students should note the assignment and spend class time in the cafeteria, the library or a designated quiet study classroom. Students may not be dismissed during their “frees” unless they have earned open campus privileges.
