Dear BH Middle School (BHMS) Families:
We hope that you are having a safe and happy summer, and look forward to seeing your students very soon. Please read this letter in its entirety, as it includes important information about online registration and obtaining your student's teacher assignment for the upcoming school year.
As you are aware from District communications sent out in July, you will be submitting your student's annual registration forms electronically this year. You also have the opportunity to pay for Farm & Nature Center field trips (BHMS grades 5 through 7), and submit "Pay to Participate" fees for sports and clubs online. If you missed the information from the District, you can find online registration instructions at http://www.bloomfield.org/welcome-to-my-bloomfield-families.
Help is available if you are having difficulty completing your online registration. You can e-mail RegistrationHelp@bloomfield.org, and someone will assist you within two business days.
ONCE YOU HAVE COMPLETED YOUR ONLINE REGISTRATION, print a confirmation summary page for each of your BHMS students. The summary must have a check mark in each of the boxes on the left to be considered complete and to receive your student's teacher assignment. Do not mail the form. You have several options for turning it in.
On Friday, August 25, families who have completed the online registration process can participate in the BHMS "Registration Confirmation Day". Bring your printed online registration confirmation form to the building (or have someone bring it for you) any time between 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. on August 25, and receive your student's teacher assignment. You may also do the following on the same day:
- Turn in completed Athletic Physical forms (download required form HERE)
- Sign up for PTO membership (if you did not do so during online registration)
- Sign up for Music Boosters membership
- Order spirit wear from the PTO
- Order band, orchestra or choir uniform shirts from Music Boosters
We will have a limited number of laptops set up on that day for those who do not have individual access to a laptop or desktop and need to complete their online registration. There may be a wait time involved to access these laptops, so please plan accordingly.
If you can't make the August 25 date, bring your printed online registration confirmation form to the BHMS office between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. on August 28, 29, 30 or 31. You will be given your student's teacher assignment at that time.
If you are out of town on any of those dates, you have two options. Both require that online registration be completed in advance.
- Have someone bring in your Registration Confirmation form for you on any of the dates indicated in options 1 and 2, and we will give that individual your student's teacher assignment.
- CLICK HERE to have your student's teacher assignment e-mailed to you on Thursday, August 31.
>UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL TEACHER ASSIGNMENTS BE GIVEN OUT PRIOR TO FRIDAY, AUGUST 25<
If you do not utilize any of these options, your student will receive his/her teacher assignment on the first day of school, which is Tuesday, September 5. School start time is 8:15 a.m. This will be a half day only for 5th graders, who will be dismissed at 11:35 a.m. It will be a whole day for grades 6, 7 & 8. Those grades will be dismissed at the regular dismissal time of 3:05 p.m. Buses will run at both dismissal times.
Watch your e-mail in the next couple of weeks for our "Lancer Update – Back to School Edition" with more information about the upcoming school year! Enjoy the remainder of your summer.
