Attention Students attending BDHS in September 2021
We have created a google classroom for you to engage in some transition fun and learning about our school. If you have registered for BDHS for September 2021 and want in on the fun, email firstname.lastname@example.org
to get the code to the classroom. We are excited for you to join the BDHS Family!

- Our cafeteria is open as a work location for online learning, students with spare and at lunch time for all students
- BDHS does daily morning announcements during homeroom and again at the beginning of Block D
- You will have your locker assigned at registration or the first day of school, it's yours for the duration of your time at BDHS. Locks are provided
Students can register online or in person one week prior to the first day of school. More information will be mailed in the summer. Registration fees you may be asked to pay include:
- Student Activity Fees
- Phys Ed Uniforms
- Yearbook (optional)
We use school cash online to accept registration fees, field trips and other payments you may make to the school. This is the preferable means of payment. We also have a debit machine in the main office. We do not accept cash payments. Closer to the start of school you can sign up for school cash online by visiting this link.
LockersYour locker will be assigned on the day of registration or the first day of school. Locks will be provided by the school. PLEASE LEAVE YOUR LOCK ON THE LOCKER, as BDHS is not responsible for items taken from your locker. Do NOT give your combination to anyone and money or other valuables should not be left in your locker - leave them at home where they are safe. If someone learns your combination, please come to the office to get a new lock immediately. Students are NOT allowed to share lockers, so there should be no reason to give your combination to anyone. Please take care of this locker as you are responsible for its condition. Backpacks and coats are to be left in your lockers as they are a tripping/safety hazard in the classrooms. TIP! If you have any issues with your locker, come to the office, or see the closest teacher. Don't worry, we spend the first week helping students with lockers and we understand it can be a hard time for anyone.
BDHS Student Handbook
An electronic version of the handbook can be found on the BDHS website (http://bdhs.lkdsb.net/
). Please familiarize yourself with the rules and policies outlined in the handbook.
Community Service Hours
Did you know, students must complete 40 hours of community involvement in order to graduate? Students are eligible to begin completing these hours as soon as they officially graduate grade 8! Consider using the summer before Grade 9 starts to find ways to volunteer in our community. We have lots of community events and organizations that could use your help!

BDHS Student Success TeamOur Student Success Team works with students, parents and teachers to ensure that a plan is put in place for each student to work toward achieving their credits. Student success strategies may include extra help sessions, alternative work space, credit recover or credit rescue initiatives. Students may be approached by members of this team during the course of the school year as an extra support. Many of the student success strategies are available to all students, listen to announcements for these opportunities.
Student Learning CentreThe SLC is open to all students who require extra assistance in any subject area, or an alternative space to work. Students with an Individual Education Plan will meet with the Resource Teacher to review and discuss their IEP annually. If you have any questions regarding an IEP, please contact the school.
