Happy Thanksgiving from the faculty, staff and administration of Bunker Hill CUSD #8
At last week's Board of Education meeting, the Bunker Hill CUSD 8 Board recognized Kayleigh Trimm, Vivien Wilcox, and Trinity Throne with a Board Salute. These three BH8 scholars, as part of their Silver Award Project for Girl Scout Troop #6628, raised funds, gathered community support and volunteers, and created the Bunker Hill Dog Park. They also donated a push mower and 6,000 waste bags. Great job, girls! #BHill8 is proud of you!
There will be a meeting on Monday, November 14th at 6:00 in the BHHS Library for all boys that are interested in playing volleyball this spring. If you cannot make the meeting, you need to contact Coach Brain Jones or Mr. Haynes.

Bunker Hill 8 Awarded Safety Grant from US Dept of Justice Bunker Hill CUSD 8 is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a grant of $188,192 from the US Department of Justice. The grant is administered by the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS Office) and was awarded for the district’s proposal for the FY2022 School Violence Prevention Program (SVPP). The district, the sole recipient in the Calhoun-Greene-Jersey-Macoupin region, submitted the grant proposal over the summer. The grant will fund 75% of needed security upgrades at both campuses in the district beginning right away. According to Bunker Hill Superintendent Todd Dugan, the grant will be used to upgrade total surveillance cameras across the entire district, as well as to construct a secure vestibule entrance at Bunker Hill High School. Other upgrades include the addition of visitor management hardware and software, instant notification software, strategically placed panic button alarms, and other needed security upgrades. “We are very grateful for the cooperation with the Macoupin County Sheriff’s Office and Bunker Hill Police Department for their consultation and endorsement of this funding opportunity for Bunker Hill 8.” Annually, COPS SVPP funding provides up to 75% funding for the following school safety measures in and around K-12 (primary and secondary) schools and school grounds across the nation: • “Coordination with law enforcement” • “Training for local law enforcement officers to prevent student violence against others and self” • “Metal detectors, locks, lighting, and other deterrent measures” • “Technology for expedited notification of local law enforcement during an emergency” • “Any other measure that the COPS Office determines may provide a significant improvement in security” For more information on the SVPP grant, please visit: https://cops.usdoj.gov/svpp
