Enrollment Information - INFOSNAP!


Important Information Regarding Your Student’s Enrollment for the 17-18 School Year!

You should receive a letter early in the week of July 17th from the San Mateo Union High School District informing you that the 2017-18 Online Annual Enrollment System powered by InfoSnap is now open! The On-Line Annual Enrollment process performs two important functions. First, it gives you the opportunity to verify for us that the information we have about your student is correct. Second, it gives you the opportunity to provide us with important items such as Health and Medical information which will allow us to better serve your student. It is very important that the Parent/Guardian complete this information. Our on-line enrollment site is safe and secure! Please note: ALL students, grades 9-12, MUST complete the On-Line Annual Enrollment process! The deadline for completing the On-Line Annual Enrollment is Friday, July 28, 2017. Again, it is very important that the On-Line Annual Enrollment be completed by the student’s parent/guardian! Please be advised that the On-line Annual Enrollment must be completed prior to picking up your student’s class schedule!


The school will open daily from 8am - 3:30 (call prior to coming in to verify specific dept/service hours). Please check in with the front office for assistance.

Attention all BHS athletes:

All Athletic Packets from this school year will be expiring on 6.1.17. However, starting 5.1.17, parents/guardians can complete an Athletic Packet for all 2017-2018 sports seasons (summer, fall, winter, spring) by going to https://sportsnethost.com/burlingame (SportsNet link can also be found by clicking on "Student Health" on BHS's homepage). First time users will need to set-up an account (you must have your student's ID# to create an account). Returning users should enter their previously selected username (email) & password to log-in. Each student can only have one account. After the packet is completed & submitted, a confirmation email will be sent from SportsNet.

Physicals that have not yet expired (were completed within the last year) and are on file in the BHS Health Office, can be used until they expire and do not need to be resubmitted. Physicals must be completed ​by an MD, DO, PA or NP in order for clearance to be renewed (please ensure the Date of Exam, Physician Signature & Stamp are included). You may log back into SportsNet at any time during the year to upload a new physical or to complete the Adult/Student Driver portion.

Any questions about medical clearance please see Ms. Herold in the Health Office. Any other questions about sports, please see Coach Phil in the Boys PE locker room.

Burlingame High School Band

If you are planning to join the Burlingame High School Band in Fall 2017, 

please SAVE THE DATE for BHS Band Camp from July 31-August 11!


Band Camp meets daily in the BHS Music Room for 2 weeks before school starts.  Camp is from 8 a.m. - 12 p.m. 


A few facts about camp:

  • No registration is required.
  • All Pep Band repertoire is learned and reviewed during Band Camp
  • You will learn to march and play during Band Camp
  • Just as important, you will meet and bond with fellow-band members.
  • Incoming freshmen will be able to show up on the first day of school and know 70-80 students, including upperclassmen, and know their way around campus.
  • Band Camp group activities are arranged daily by the Student Band Staff following camp (these are optional, but you will not want to miss out on the fun!)
  • Marching band uniform fittings occur during Band Camp (or possibly on the Saturday between the first and second week). If you are unable to attend camp, the fitting will be arranged during the first week of school. We are looking for 1-3 freshman parents to help with fittings during Band Camp. It's a great way to get involved!  Contact Sherry Haber sherry_haber@yahoo.com before June 1 or Christina Habelt after June 1 habelt1996@yahoo.com
  • Please note - you must attend Band Camp in order to be able to march in the Little Big Game Half-time Field Show; otherwise you will be playing from the sidelines. If you have a scheduling conflict, please email Mr. Kimura at dkimura@smuhsd.org and cc Christina Habelt.
