    Methods of communicating on a regular basis:



    • Progress Reports--Student progress is sent home in the form of a progress report, four and half weeks into every grading period
    • Report Cards--Student progress in all areas is sent home in the form of a report card at the end of every grading period
    • Student Planner/Agenda--School and county policies are included in your child’s planner for easy reference.  In addition, teachers often communicate by writing notes in your child’s planner and asking you to sign the planner once you have read it yourself.  Using the student planner properly and regularly is the key to staying organized and informed at BHESA!


    Blackboard Connect--A UCPS service that allows our principal to pre-record important messages for the entire student body and have them electronically sent to your phone line and email at a predetermined time.

    Please be sure to make appointments in advance if you need to meet with an administrator, counselor, or teacher. Drop-in visits are discouraged.
