Bloomfield Hills Schools is committed to providing a safe and healthy school environment. Updated Medical Action Plans (MAPs) and Medical Management Plans (MMPs), along with our BHS Authorization for Prescription and Non-Prescription Medication forms are required at the start of every school year and expire on the last day of school instruction. These forms provide BHS with required medical direction from your child’s licensed healthcare provider and allows staff to provide services including medication administration, medical procedures and/or medical interventions. Without prescribed orders, only interventions including soap, water, adhesive bandages, ice and age appropriate comfort will be provided. Please direct any questions that you may have to our district nurse at email@example.com or 248-341-5435.
New and updated forms may be submitted to the school that the student will be attending for the 2022-23 school year. If your child has developed a new health condition or, if your child is new to the district and has a medical condition that is dependent on staff support, please contact the school directly or the district nurse, as soon as possible at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Depending on your child's grade level, teacher/classroom assignments are distributed at different times.
Locating Your Child's Bus Route
Bus route information is available through Parent Portal after Tuesday, August 27, 2019. Under your student's name, select the "Transportation Info" link on the left side. If you do not remember your login credentials, please select the Need Your Login Information? option underneath where you would enter your PIN and Password. This will prompt you to supply your email address; your PIN and Password will be emailed to you.
We recommend checking your child's bus information again the night prior to the start of school due to new student registrations that may require the adjustment of routes and times for all riders.
Please note that due to new students enrolling throughout the year, pickup times are subject to change. Any bus changes throughout the year will be updated online.
Students should be waiting outside at their stop (not indoors) at least 5 minutes prior to pickup time. Ridership fluctuates daily based on after school sports/clubs and therefore the times listed as drop off are a baseline. For afternoon drop offs, families should note a 15-minute window prior to, and after, assigned stop time. Kindergarten and 1st grade students will be dropped off only if an older sibling on the bus or a guardian/authorized adult is at the stop to meet the child. If this is not the case, your child will be taken back to the schools latchkey program.
Bus Stop Changes
Bus stop change requests can be submitted through the Request for Relocation of Bus Stop form. Please email this form to JMack@bloomfield.org or fax to 248.341.6298 and we will get back to you soon!
The Online Back to School Registration process is open for the 2022-23 school year. If your child plans to attend school (kindergarten - 12th grade) in Bloomfield Hills Schools, you are required to register annually.
Our online system is quick and convenient, allowing you to complete the majority of the process from your own home on a desktop or laptop computer.
If you are new to our district or do not remember your login credentials, please select the Need Your Login Information? option underneath where you would enter your PIN and Password. This will prompt you to supply your email address and your PIN and Password will be emailed to you.
If you need assistance with other Online Registration questions, please email StudentServices@bloomfield.org. A member of our team will get back to you within 2 business days.
Thank you in advance for your participation!
Free School Meals for All Students Has Ended
When the 2021-22 school year ended, so did free meals for every student. While the federal government funded a program that allowed all students access to free meals during the COVID-19 pandemic, Congress recently declined to continue funding this program. We understand this change may cause you to worry. However, there are important steps you can take NOW to be sure your student receives the meals they need this school year.
If your student qualifies for free or reduced meals, they can still receive them this year, but you must take action to make it happen. If you don’t receive a notice via USPS from us indicating that you have been directly certified for free or reduced meals, please complete the 2022-23 online application. To complete the Online Free/Reduced lunch application, parents/guardians can Login to ParentPortal and complete the application. Click on your child's name, then click "Food Service Free & Reduced Lunch Application" under School Links. Paper applications are also available at the school where your child attends and here.
If you do not qualify for free or reduced meals, you may begin depositing money into student accounts at any time to prepare for the cost of school lunches next year. Information on meal prices for the 2022-23 school year are listed below;
- Elementary & Middle School Breakfast is $1.85, Lunch is $3.40
- High School Breakfast is $2.00, Lunch is $3.90
Food services, operated by Aramark, rotates a regular menu of healthy and delicious meal options for students and staff. Vegetarian, vegan, and other options that meet most dietary restrictions/needs are available daily upon request. For more information, please visit www.bloomfield.org/lunch.
To add funds to your child's lunch account, please follow one of the recommendations below.
- Credit Card: Lunch payments can be made through CommunityPass.
- Check: Lunch payments can be sent to school with student's full name in memo area. Make checks payable to: Bloomfield Hills Schools
- Cash: Lunch payments will be accepted in an envelope with the student's full name printed on the outside of the envelope. Please do not send large amounts of cash. Cash is accepted at the registers in the middle and high schools.
Pay to Participate Fees may be paid online at http://www.bloomfield.org/payments. If you have not yet set up your account, e-mail email@example.com for your welcome letter, or you can complete this form and mail it in.
Pay to Participate fees cannot be paid at the school. They must be paid online or sent to the Athletics Office at the Booth Center, 7273 Wing Lake Road, Bloomfield Hills, 48301.
If you qualify for free or reduced lunch, your pay to participate fee may be waived. You must note on your lunch application that it is okay to share your status with our department. We do not want any student to miss the opportunity to participate in athletics or clubs due to financial hardship. Please contact the Athletic Director or your principal. **Note, the system is set up so that if you use your established Community Pass account, you can register yourself and the amount will come up as $0.00. If that does not work for you, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Note, for tryout sports, you can pay after you find out if your student made the team, payments must be made before the student can participate in official practices.
Once you pay your fee, it is NOT refundable until the end of the school year upon written request. If your student participates in any athletic contest (or 3 or more times for intramural), your fee will not be refunded. If your student attends a club three or more times, your fee will not be refunded. If you paid for sports and your student only participated in clubs, you will be refunded the difference at the end of the school year.
When does school start for the day?
Our four elementary schools (Conant, Eastover, Lone Pine, and Way) begin class at 9:05 a.m. and end at 4 p.m. Students should plan to arrive between 8:50 a.m. and 9 a.m., when there is adult supervision for arriving students and they have time to get settled for the start of class.
The three middle schools (BHMS, EHMS, and WHMS) begin class at 8:25 a.m. and end at 3:20 p.m. Again, students should plan to arrive approximately ten minutes early to prepare for class.
Bloomfield Hills High School begins at 7:55 a.m. and ends at 2:50 p.m. The parking lots, carpool lane, and bus loop can become congested a few minutes before school so please plan accordingly.
For more information about your school's bell schedule, including standard dismissal times, half day dismissal times, and before/after care times, please visit your school's page on our website by navigating to the top of this page, selecting "Schools" from the menu, and selecting your child's school building from the options that appear.
To minimize disruption to the educational process, the goal is always to keep school in session unless road conditions, severe cold or other weather conditions pose a significant risk to student safety.
There is no defined depth of snow accumulation that indicates closure (because of the overall effect of wind, ice, temperature, humidity and other factors). Likewise, there is no exact temperature that indicates closure. Typically, when wind chills head into the -22 and below range, we consider school cancellation because frostbite can set in within approximately 30 minutes. If the road conditions are not favorable, bus delays may push bus stop wait times into the 30 minute range, posing a risk to our students.
In these types of weather-related school closure situations, a designated member of the administration will often drive district roads between 3:00 and 4:30 a.m. and report findings and recommendations that help inform our decision. We also consult with weather authorities and other area superintendents, but ultimately we have to make a decision based on what we feel is in the best interest of Bloomfield Hills students.
Whenever possible, we try to provide advance notice of school closures so that families can make alternate plans. Yet, this has to be balanced with waiting as long as possible to make sure the weather stays true to the forecast. No forecast is perfect and sometimes the temperatures and snowfall amounts vary, which supports waiting until 4:30 am to make the decision (despite the difficulty we know this poses to families who have less time to make alternate arrangements). There is no way to be perfect with this. We can only make the best possible decision in real time with the best available information.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. Michigan winters are never predictable or easy to navigate, but we will do our very best to keep both learning and safety as our top priorities!
Each school operates an attendance line and we would encourage you to call that line as soon as you know your child will be absent. The telephone numbers for each school's attendance line are posted on the main landing page of their website. To find those numbers, navigate to the top of this screen, select "Schools" from the main menu, select your child's school, and scroll through the page until you see the "contact" section on the right side.
Each elementary and middle school's website has suggested school supplies listed by grade.
High school students will be provided a suggested supply list on the first day of school from their teachers, common supplies include: 3 ring binder, folders to organize work, pens, pencils, paper or notebooks.
Bloomfield Hills High School is a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) learning environment. BYOD is a technology initiative where students bring a personally owned device to school for the purpose of learning. A personally owned device is any wireless and/or portable electronic piece of equipment that includes laptops, netbooks, tablets/slates, and smart phones. A keyboarded device is preferred. For more information, see the BYOD webpage. If a student does not have access to a personal device, please see your counselor.
Devices will be provided by BHS to students in grades K-8 so that all students have the same technology environment.
