Snow days, moving forward

We’ve had an interesting start to the 2023 school year, digging out from all this snow! Please note, school has now been canceled twice for inclement weather. Those first two days were considered snow days, and students were not required to participate in learning. Should the district determine that school be canceled a third through seventh time, students will participate in an E-Learning Day from home (click here for District 196 weather-related schedule changes).

Students should bring their learning devices home from school each day to be prepared for this possibility.

On the morning of an E-Learning Day:

  • Students will complete lessons for the classes they would normally attend (either Green Day or White Day).
  • If students do not know what cycle day it is, that information can be found on the BHMS website.
  • Students should check Schoology for instructions from teachers after 9:30 a.m. for that day’s assignment.
  • Students should plan to spend approximately 25 minutes for each of their classes to complete all assigned work.
  • Students can contact their teachers through Schoology Messenger if they have questions or need assistance.

District Information & Events

The impact of social media

District 196 will present a screening of the documentary "Like" at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Jan. 9, at Rosemount High School. The film will be followed by a panel/community discussion.  

The documentary explores the impact of social media on our lives and the effects of technology on the brain. The goal of the film is to inspire people to self-regulate when it comes to social media and to empower all to create a healthy balance.

The film will be presented with Spanish subtitles and there will be interpreters at the event.  "Like" is appropriate for ages 10 years old and up.

The event is free and registration is encouraged.
