August, 2018

Dear Belfast Area High School students and parents,

It is almost that special time of year to return to school! We all look forward to seeing you soon, and hope that you have recharged your battery and come to school with great energy and anticipation.

Incoming 9th graders had their schedule’s for the upcoming year mailed recently. Returning 10th, 11th, and 12th graders received their schedule in the spring and should be able to access it on IC. Your username is your last name, first initial, 2 digit year of graduation @rsu71.org. Your password is unchanged. Please take some time to review your schedule. If a class is missing, or you need to make a change, please follow these guidelines.

·                   The Counseling Department will be open beginning on Tuesday, August 21 to assist with scheduling issues.

·                   It is advised that you call 338-1790 x308 to schedule an appointment with your counselor. Appointments may be scheduled between the hours of 8:00 and 2:00.

·                   The counselors will be busy with an ‘all staff’ workshop on August 28. Therefore, students should do their best to schedule appointments during the week of August 21.

·                   You may try to ‘drop-in’ to meet with your counselor, but those with a scheduled appointment will have preference.

·                   You may try to email your counselor with your scheduling issue, however, an in-person meeting is probably better.

·                   All students should have at least six courses each semester.

·                   PLEASE DO NOT wait until the first day of school to make a schedule change. Please schedule an appointment in August if you need to make a change.

·                   A reminder that school begins for 9th graders with an Orientation Day on Thursday, August 30. All upperclassmen will report on Friday, August 31.

·                   VERY IMPORTANT FOR PARENTS OF ALL INCOMING 9th GRADERS – YOU ARE INVITED to attend a Parent Orientation Program from 12:45 – 2:00 on Thursday, August 30. We strongly recommend that at least one parent of each new BAHS student attend this annual out-reach program.
