ALL Freshmen Students (even if you attended middle school at BK)

ALL New Transfer & International Students

On this day, all new students, grades 6-12, should report to the gymnasium at 8:00am in full uniform for registration. We want to make sure that each new student takes the time to become familiar with our building, teachers, expectations, and their peers as well. From 8:00-8:30am we will allow time for students to set up their lockers and practice their combinations. Included with this orientation will be guided tours of the building and a meet and greet with the entire faculty and administration. There will be no bussing for this orientation. Students must make arrangements for their own transportation.
