Bell Schedule for the 2022-2023 School Year!
Bellflower Middle & High School will have a new bell schedule during the 2022-2023 school year. The new bell schedule will allow for students to take up to 8 classes (6 courses minimum for 7th-11th graders, and 5 course minimum for 12th graders). The bell schedule is also dependent on the calendar as well, which we are calling the Maroon & Gold Calendar. Maroon Days will be for odd periods 1, 3, 5, and 7. Gold Days will be for even periods 2, 4, 6, and 8. Mondays will continue to remain as "shortened" days in the bell schedule. Students and parents should pay close attention to the calendar and associated bell schedule.

See Something -- Hear Something -- Say Something
We encourage our Bellflower Campus Community to report any suspicious or concerning activities. If you see something or hear something, please say something. You may report this to any teacher, counselor, or administrator or you may utilize the BHS Tip Line by clicking here.
The K-12 Protocols have been updated. You may view the updated protocols on our website along with additional resources relating to COVID which include isolation and vaccine information.
CDPH recommends that antigen tests be considered the primary option for detecting Covid-19 in schools. Test kits are available for students/staff who are symptomatic considered a close contact, or for any employee needing to test weekly at their school site. Additionally, free test kits mailed directly to your home may be obtained by visiting https://www.covid.gov/tests.
When To Get A Test:
If you have COVID-19 symptoms (i.e. fever, chills, cough, sore throat, headaches, congestion, runny nose, nausea, body aches, fatigue, vomiting, diarrhea, short of breath, loss of taste or smell)
If you have been a close contact to someone with COVID-19
If you have COVID-19, to see if you can end isolation early
If you had COVID-19 within the last 90 days, testing is not recommended unless you have symptoms.
If you have symptoms and you have a negative test, it is recommended that you keep staying away from others and get another test 1-2 days later. This is because these tests are more likely to miss early infections. For self-tests, make sure to read and follow all test instructions correctly. You can also retest with a molecular test, i.e. PCR.
If you test positive for COVID-19 – stay home and away from others for a minimum of 5 days from the onset of symptoms. Inform your close contacts of possible exposure. You can leave isolation on day 6 or later if all of the following conditions are met:
You get a negative result taken on or after day 5
You have not had a fever for at least 24 hours without using fever-reducing medicine
Your symptoms are improving, or you have no symptoms
Wear a mask indoors through day 10
OR You can leave isolation on day 11 without testing, as long as you have not had a fever for at least 24 hours without using fever-reducing medicine.
Instructions for Close Contacts:
You do not need to quarantine for being a close contact as long as you have no symptoms. You are required to:
Get tested 3-5 days from last exposure or earlier if symptomatic
Wear a mask indoors and outdoors when in close contact with others for 10 days
Continue to monitor your health for 10 days and test right away if symptoms start

Bellflower Community Input Committee
Dear Bellflower Middle and High School Community,
We want to acknowledge that there is concern regarding recent events at our school and in the Bellflower Unified School District community. As a staff, we also share these concerns that are a reflection of a much bigger problem in our community and society. By now you have received communication from our Superintendent, Dr. Ben Drati, highlighting the steps our district is taking to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our students and staff.
As a result, Bellflower Middle and High School (BMHS) is also taking steps to update our safety measures. One of the steps includes the establishment of a Community Input Committee incorporating BMHS administration, staff, students, and families. This committee will discuss the topics and suggestions addressed by our community during the Town Hall meeting held on Monday, March 20th, 2023.
The committee will review preventative measures, discuss ideas, and have time to collaborate with other educational partners to provide feedback that will inform the refinement of our school safety plan. This committee will also provide the BUSD with feedback to assist the district in considering comprehensive safety measures.
In order to form this committee, we are providing a link to a Google Form for interested parents and students to sign up. The deadline to sign up is April 7, 2023.
We want to assure you that we take all concerns seriously and that we welcome all feedback. We look forward to working collaboratively with all educational partners in enhancing a school environment that is welcoming and safe for all, Because Unity Creates Success.
