Bus 1610 is running 10 minutes late this afternoon.
Earlier this afternoon, there was a situation with a student at Paw Paw High School which required the assistance of law enforcement and paramedics. The situation was contained to only that student and medical care was administered. The school was on an instructional lockdown while this issue was handled. We recognize that our families will be concerned. We want to share as much information as possible while respecting the privacy of the student. We appreciate the swift response of our staff, law enforcement and EMS partners for continuing to keep our students safe.
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!
