Welcome to Blind Brook High School!
I hope that you enjoyed the summer break and are ready to meet the challenges of a new school year. Our summer preparations are nearly complete, and I am confident that students will have a rewarding educational experience in 2018.2019. Classes will begin on Tuesday, September 4th at 7:50 and will be a full day of school.
I would like to emphasize a few areas that will allow for an efficient start of the school year. In an effort to reduce our carbon footprint and paper consumption, we are using our website to communicate with families. Please go to www.blindbrook.org and click on the high school to get important information regarding our school. There you will find not only policies and practices, but forms that will need to be completed and returned to the school. If you do not have internet access, please call the office at 914-937-3600, Ext. 3142, and we will provide hard copies. Thank you for your cooperation.
Please check the High School website to view the current Family Guidebook. Please familiarize yourself with the Family Guidebook as students and their families are responsible for knowing and adhering to all district policies and procedures.
Educational research has shown a strong correlation between attendance and academic progress and achievement. The Comprehensive Student Attendance Policy 7110
, adopted by the Board of Education stipulates that except in cases of illness, students will not receive credit for a class if they are absent more than 18 times in a year-long course or 9 for a semester course. This policy will be strictly enforced this year.
Student Parking and Drop-off/Pick-up
Parking on campus is a privilege reserved for seniors only. Seniors will be permitted to park on campus once they have returned the required permission form and obtained a parking permit.
Parents dropping off or picking up students are asked to follow the same procedure as last year. Please form a single line into the property and drop-off/pick-up students at the walkway in front of the school. For everyone’s safety, please heed the directions of the security staff monitoring the flow of traffic. It is important that all drivers remain extremely focused while driving on campus to avoid accidents and injuries. Please do not use cell phones while driving on our campus.
Parents are not permitted to drop-off/pick-up students at the side loading dock area.
Please read all the material carefully. Forms that need to be returned should be printed and given to the responsible person by the date stated. Students will not be able to assume privileges if applicable forms are not returned to the school.
