No school for some students on Jan. 12

Some students will not have to come to school on Jan. 12. Students with grades lower than a C will have to attend.

Students with grades C or above will not have to come to school on the last day of the semester, Jan. 12. BHS administration and staff want to help students that have D’s or lower.
“Students who have a D or an F will be notified on Monday, Jan. 8 that their attendance is required,” Principal Bryant Bednarek said.
Students who are required to attend but do not attend will not get any other chances to improve their first semester grades before the semester ends, and will also be possibly facing truancy charges.
“We hope students take advantage of this opportunity so we have minimal failures going into the second semester,” Bednarek said.
This bridge day is being created to help more students improve their grades, and help make sure fewer students have to attend summer school or repeat a class.
“No teacher wants a student to fail. We all want to see everyone succeed. This day provides that opportunity to showcase the students’ understanding, even if they didn’t understand it at the time of the original assessment,” tech and engineering and math teacher Chris Much said.
Art teacher Lori Rademann says she agrees with Much.
“I really think this day will be really beneficial for some students,” Rademann said.
Rademann also sees some negatives that could come about with this bridge day.
“I do think it’s going to be annoying when the students with A’s or a higher grade in general come into school to get that 100 percent. I feel this way because I’m not planning on doing any projects because most of my students are just missing site work,” Rademann said.
