We are proud to announce that BJSHS Junior, Riata Rouch, was recognized by the College Board for the "National Rural and Small Town Recognition Award." Riata earned this recognition because of her academic achievements in school and her outstanding performance on the PSAT/NMSQT® Exam. To qualify for this recognition, Riata took the PSAT/NMSQT in the fall of her 11th grade year and scored in the top 10% of the state, and has a 3.5 GPA or higher. Way to go, Riata! We are proud of you! #BetterAtBlackford

Good evening parents, this is Terry Roe from BJSHS. Earlier you received a message from the superintendent, Mr. Yencer, that we are moving to two days of virtual instruction due to COVID. Just a few minutes ago, I sent an email to the students with a schedule and the expectations for virtual learning. They will be meeting on a schedule with their teachers in Google Meets from home. Please ask your student to check his or her school email to get this information. We will have staff in the office in the morning for parents to get chromebooks that have been left at school. Have a good rest of your evening.

Good afternoon parents and guardians, this is Terry Roe the principal of BJSHS, I wanted to let you know that we successfully conducted a school-wide lockdown safety drill today. We are required by state law to conduct this drill each year. We also took precautions to limit our students and staff from covid exposure during the drill today. If you were near the building during the drill, you would have noticed an increased presence of local law enforcement. We invited local police to be a part of our drill to observe and offer their support. The purpose of our safety drills is to make sure our students and staff know how best to keep themselves as safe as possible in the event of an emergency.
