Message from BH8 School Nurse: BHCUSD received an allotment of BinaxNow test kits that were not utilized during the 2022-23 school year. These kits can also be used as at-home test kits. We would like to "clean out the Nurse's closet" before the end of the school year and share them with our families. These BinaxNow kits have two tests per box and are limited in quantity. Kits are available one per student and on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please complete the form at this link if you are interested in having a kit sent home with your student.

Bunker Hill CUSD #8 believes ensuring student and staff safety is its top priority. As such, the District Administration has been, and will continue to, monitor this spring weather event that has the potential for severity. However, the district also understands sending children home early to possibly empty homes present other challenges. This afternoon's weather patterns are based on a forecast that while often accurate, is admittedly limited in confidence. As a result, we will continue to monitor this wave of storm cells forecast to enter the area at an unknown time this afternoon or early evening. In the meantime, school will still be dismissed at 3:10 PM. If this should happen to change, parents will be notified via text as soon as possible.

This morning (Wednesday, 3/8) at 10:30 AM, our district conducted an unannounced K9 sweep of the BHHS campus in order to detect and deter possession of substances violating our Student Handbook and Board Policies. As you can probably understand, in order for this operation to be effective, it was impossible to notify parents/guardians in advance. K9 sweeps have always been, and will continue to be, unannounced but families will always be notified afterward. As a result of the sweep, students were asked to remain in their classrooms for approximately one hour while law enforcement conducted a very thorough search. However, at no point during the sweep did students have contact with the dogs. Although cannabis (marijuana) has been legalized in Illinois and other states, it is not legal for those under the age of 21 and it is absolutely not allowed at our schools. Today’s efforts were a coordinated effort two months in the planning, and required a significant amount of manpower, both from our own administrators at Bunker Hill CUSD 8 and our law enforcement partners at the Illinois State Police, Carlinville Police, the Macoupin County Sheriff’s Office, and the Bunker Hill Police Department. Although we wish it wasn’t necessary to even consider these types of proactive measures, we are committed to ensuring that our school district remains the safe and healthy environment for our students and staff deserve. Thank you in advance for your understanding and continued support of our schools.
