FOR FAMILIES OF 8TH GRADERS

Below are the dates for the course scheduling activities for BHMS 8th graders moving on to Bloomfield Hills High School (BHHS) in the Fall. Please read the following information carefully, as action is required for both students AND their parents/guardians.

-For BHMS 8th Grade Students only: On Tuesday, March 6, the BHHS counselors will come to BHMS in the morning to meet with our 8th grade students and share information about 9th grade course selections. Course selection sheets will be passed out, and students will be given instructions on how to enter their 9th grade course requests into MiStar. This must be done prior to March 14.

-For BHMS 8th Grade Students AND Parents/Guardians: On Wednesday, March 14, the BHHS counselors will be back at BHMS to meet individually with 8th graders and a parent/guardian by appointment only. Students should be prepared to turn in their completed 9th grade course selection sheet, provide evidence that they have entered their courses into MiStar and come with questions. High School counselor assignments, which are broken down by the first letter of a student's last name, are shown on the appointment scheduling site. Appointments will be available every ten minutes from 7:30 - 11:00 a.m. and from 11:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. Please click HERE to set up an appointment with the appropriate BHHS counselor.

Students for whom an appointment is not scheduled will be assigned a time to meet with their HS counselor, even if a parent/guardian is unable to attend.

-Students who are certain they will not attend BHHS do not need to sign up for an appointment.

Please refer questions to BHMS 8th grade counselor, Mr. Flevaris.

CAR POOL AND SAFETY CONCERNS

We continue to receive phone calls from concerned parents about several car pool situations that are putting students at risk, causing a great deal of frustration, and creating congestion in the car pool lane. The BHMS administration, PTO, and volunteer parents are currently working on a plan to eliminate these situations. In the meantime, if your car pool practices contribute to any of these major concerns (there may be others) please discontinue those practices immediately and follow the correct procedure indicated.

Concern #1:  Cars bypassing those waiting in the right (inner) car pool lane, and dropping off or picking up students in the left (outer) lane.

Correct Procedure: Drop off and pick up in the right lane ONLY. Left lane should be a constantly moving lane used only for exiting the carpool area.


Concern #2: Cars backing up before pulling out of the right lane.

Correct Procedure: A student was nearly hit recently when a car backed up before pulling out of the right lane. Please wait the extra minute for the car in front of you to pull out, so that you do not need to back up to exit the lane.
 

Concern #3: Being in the right (inner) car pool lane, but ONLY dropping off or picking up directly in front of the building.

Correct Procedure: Drop off and pick up can be done in the right lane as far forward as the flagpole at the west end of the car pool circle, and as far back as the start of the sidewalk that extends from the building toward the road. Please do not leave space in front of you just to drop your student off directly in front of the building. This will keep the car pool lane moving, and minimize back-up on Quarton Road.


Concern #4: Cars entering the carpool lane prior to 7:55 a.m. (when the building opens), but sitting with students in the car until 7:55 a.m.

Correct Procedure: If you choose to have your student stay in the car until 7:55 a.m., please do not wait in the carpool lane. Instead, you are welcome to park in the lot near the tennis courts until your student is ready to exit from the car.

NOTE REQUIRED WHEN MISSING SCHOOL FOR APPOINTMENTS

For doctor or other health care appointments during the school day, students should bring in a note from the doctor/dental office to the Attendance Office for verification upon their return from the appointment. Please remember to sign your student out at the Attendance Office. Students sign themselves back in when they return. Refer to the Attendance Guidelines posted on the BHMS webpage for further information.

REMINDER ABOUT STUDENT ILLNESSES

Students who have a fever should always be kept home from school. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) defines a fever as a temperature of 100.4 degrees or higher. In fact, the CDC recommends that anyone with a fever remain home until they are they are fever free for 24 hours, without the use of fever reducing drugs. We ask that you adhere to these recommendations for the health of your child, as well as for the other students and adults at BHMS.

Students who become ill during the school day should go to the BHMS Clinic. Clinic parent volunteers are there to facilitate a call to a sick student's parent or guardian so that arrangements can be made to have the student picked as soon as possible. The clinic is not intended to be a place for sick children to remain for any length of time during the school day. If your daytime or emergency phone numbers or contacts change during the year, please update your student's profile on your Parent Connect page.

REMINDER ABOUT NUT RESTRICTIONS AT BHMS

Please remember that BHMS IS A NUT-RESTRICTED BUILDING, 24-HOURS A DAY, SEVEN DAYS A WEEK. There are students in the building who are highly allergic to peanuts and all kinds of tree nuts, and their well-being is of concern.
