BHHS virtual staff meeting

Principal's Message: Distance Learning For All (April 7, 2020)

Dear Bruin Families,
The purpose of this email is to check in on YOU and your families. In just a few weeks, so much has changed for all of us. Please know you are not in it alone. If you need anything during this time, we are only an email away. Although our building is closed, we are working from home and have access to many of the communication tools that we had before. Also, know that food will continue to be distributed by the BHHS Cafeteria from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesdays and Fridays each week. 
 
During these times, we all struggle with defining our new routines and expectations. We have been doing that as a staff, as well, and want to reassure you that our goal is for our students to continue to make progress toward graduation.  
 
Our cohort teachers have reached out to every student to answer questions and to make sure that everyone is doing ok. If your student has not yet heard from their teacher, please let me know ASAP via email (DeAnneV@brookings.k12.or.us). 
 
We will also send you a recommended daily student schedule at the end of this week, but we understand that each family situation is different, and it is okay to do what works for you. I highly suggest that you come up with some type of routine, however.  
 
Finally, please know that we've got this together! You have raised amazing, resilient young adults and we are here to help them continue to grow despite any challenge that we face. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns. 
 
Yours in Service,
DeAnne Varitek
Principal, Brookings-Harbor High School

About Us

  • 108 graduates in Class of 2018 Our district has increased the graduation rate from the 60th percentile to more than 80th percentile in recent years, above the state average. We work to keep our students on track to graduate at all grades levels and have intervention programs to help students who fall behind.
  • 3 types of professional certificates offered BHHS students can earn an Allied Health Certificate in partnership with SWOCC, CompTIA Professional Information Technology certificates, and numerous Graphic and Digital Media Art professional software certificates. We've also re-added numerous CTE courses, such as welding and construction trades in recent years to provide more "hands-on" vocational training opportunities.
  • 1,717 dual credits earned in 2017-18 Last year, 184 of our students completed college credits through high school classes. Southern Oregon University (SOU), Oregon Institute of Technology (OIT) and South Western Oregon Community College (SOCC) to provide these dual credit opportunities.
  • $4.5 Million in Seismic Safety Upgrades Our district earned three $1.5 million in grants from Business Oregon to retrofit the elementary, middle and high school for safety in the event of a major earthquake. Kalmiopsis Elementary and Azalea Middle School are complete. Brookings-Harbor High School is slated for construction as soon as summer 2019.
