Graduation Update for Senior Families:

Good afternoon Bruin families,
 
We are excited to announce that we are able to increase the number of family tickets for graduation now that we are officially within our two-week window for graduation and in the green. 

Eleven guest tickets will now be distributed to each student during graduation practice on Friday, June 4.  

With new OHA guidelines, graduates and attendees will not be required to wear face masks during graduation but we are still required to maintain 6 feet of distance between parties. Distanced seating will be available in the stadium and on the track, as well as on the field (bring your own chair) if weather permits. As always, accessible seating will be available for persons with disabilities.  

On a related note, if your senior has not received their cap and gown or has questions about their event time; please contact the school office.  

Our annual Student Achievement Night will be held virtually this year on Friday, May 28, on Facebook and our school website. Students will receive certificates of achievement and a Bruin award during cohort that day. 

Thank you for your patience with us as we’ve navigated this challenging school year with all of its ups and downs. I am continually impressed by how our community comes together for our students and I am always grateful for the support and understanding that you show. 

Yours in service, 
DeAnne Varitek, BHHS Principal
