The BSHS XC teachers team challenge you all to participate in the OPEN RACE that will take place at the end of our HS Invitational at Cacapon State Park on Saturday September, 17th, 2022. In this open race you can participate individually or by teams. It would be wonderful if each school fielded a different team. Imagine the motivation we would give our students if they could see adult teams from PPS, PVES, WES, WSIS, WSMS, BSHS and the BOE! Teams consist of between 4 and 7 people. The first 4 of each team score. Among these 4 there must be at least one woman. Each team must wear an identifying shirt/uniform. We will donate the majority of the proceeds to the BSHS Athletic Boosters. We hope to see you there!

WV Academy Days 2022
There is no school on Monday, Sept. 5 for Labor Day.
Please remember that our bus runs often take longer than expected on the first day of school. It is possible that your child's evening bus run could be delayed up to 45 minutes. Similar delays could last the first few days of school. We appreciate your patience as we work to get everyone where they need to go.
Today, Morgan County Staff welcome back students for the first day of school. We want to wish all of our students an amazing first day. “Let us remember: One book, one pen, one child and one teacher can change the world.”
Senator Joe Manchin in partnership with the West Virginia University ROTC is hosting an Academy Training Day on Saturday, August 27, 2022.
