Busses are just now departing the high school. We appreciate your patience as students will be delivered approximately 45 minutes late.
As we get closer to dismissal for our first official day of school, we ask for your patience. It's going to take a little extra time to get everyone sorted and onto the right bus before heading home. PLEASE ANTICIPATE DELAYS. Thank you for your cooperation. It's been a great day!

Today was the first day back for most BCS staff. To welcome them, a Back to School Breakfast was held in the BJSHS cafeteria. During the event, staff heard from Superintendent Chad Yencer, Assistant Superintendent Dave Parker, and Todd Hill, East Central Indiana School Trust president. Mr. Yencer thanked custodians and maintenance staff for all their hard work over the summer. Principals welcomed the new staff members in their buildings. What a great start to the day!
