Best way to contact your child during school hours
The BCHS Tech Department recommends your student setup a personal email account, through google or other email provider. You can then use that email to contact them. With their iPad setup to view their emails, they will have access to seeing your message throughout the day. (BCHS Student email accounts do NOT receive emails from anyone outside of the BCHS system.) Have your student contact the Tech Counter if they need help.
Become involved, meet other parents, and volunteer for BCHS activities. Parent volunteers are needed for various events, retreats and more! There is a spot for everyone's time and talent!
Volunteers are organized through the Trinity Parent Club. Questions? Contact Co-Chairs J'netta Crawford (email@example.com), Therese Hartley (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Director of Special Events Robin Kontor (email@example.com).
Training Required to Volunteer at BCHS
For the safety and well-being of our students, the Archdiocese of Indianapolis has instituted safety protocols by which all employees and volunteers of its Catholic schools must abide.
The Archdiocese's program is called Safe and Sacred.
All adults who will be volunteering in any BCHS activity at which students are present are required to participate in this safety training program. Please complete this before you volunteer.
