State and federal laws require schools to assess student learning every year in specific grade levels and subjects. The Michigan Department of Education (MDE) is not allowing for remote testing, therefore the Michigan Student Test of Educational Progress (M-Step) must be rendered inside a school facility. This means that all assessments must be administered in person.
All children are eligible to receive meals from BHS at this time. Curbside pickup is available:
