Students are allowed to enter the building beginning at 8:30 a.m. Teachers are attending meetings or completing preparations before that time. Thanks in advance for your cooperation with this guideline. Please make sure that your children dress appropriately for the weather for outdoor recess. The children go out daily, unless the temp is below zero.
School Cancellation Policy
In case of a late start, early dismissal or school cancellation due to weather (or emergency) conditions, parents will be notified by phone and email through our automated parent notification system (Blackboard Connect). For additional updates, you can also check our school district website at www.bhmschools.org or tune into radio stations WCCO (830 AM) or KRWC (1360 AM) or follow announcements on television stations KARE 11, KMSP 9, KSTP 5 and WCCO 4.
If the district has to close school and send students home early, we will assume that your child will go to his/her normal destination at the end of the day. Please discuss with your child what he/she is to do in case early dismissal is called.
