Seniors--if you plan to attend and participate in the ceremony, please sign up using the Google Form posted in the Senior Counseling Google Classroom.  The Senior Classroom code is: muqpk7s and you must be logged into your school Google account to join/sign up.

 
Per district policy, please note the following guidelines for attendance and participation in the 2020 Graduation Ceremony:
  • Each graduating senior will only be able to bring TWO guests (this is firm--no exceptions, no matter the age of the guests). Both guests will sit next to the graduating senior on the football field.
  • If you have not already purchased your cap and gown from Jostens (661-324-8529), please do so as quickly as possible! Only those wearing caps and gowns will be allowed to participate.
  • Please DO NOT alter your caps and gowns in any way until after the ceremony (and only if you want to!).
  • Masks will be required for both you and your guests to attend and participate in the ceremony. A BHS mask with logo will be provided to each graduate and a generic mask will be issued to each guest upon entering.
  • There will be no graduation rehearsal prior to the ceremony.
  • Additional details and information will be available soon!
