All Athletic Packets from this school year will be expiring on the last day of school. However, starting 5.2.16, parents/guardians must now complete Athletic Packets online by going to  https://sportsnethost.com/burlingame/index.php?page=sign-in (link can also be found by clicking on "Student Health" on BHS's homepage). First time users will need to set-up an account. Returning users should enter their previously selected username & password to log-in.

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 &​ must be fully completed in order for their clearance to be renewed. You may log back in at anytime during the year to upload a new physical or 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.

Second Semester Senior Attendance Policy Reminder

This is a reminder that there is a different attendance policy for second semester seniors who are making adequate progress toward graduation.

This information was discussed by Mr. Wolfgramm and Mrs. Arbizu at the Code of Conduct Meetings at the beginning of the school year, and is also found on page 19 of the Burlingame High School Student & Family Handbook 2015-16 as well as the school-issued Student Planner.


Please take a moment to review the policy.  Questions?  See Mr. Wolfgramm or Mrs. Arbizu.

Thank you!


The CAASPP test will be administered to all 11th grade students at BHS over the next three weeks, and the Life Science Test will be administered to all 10th grade students on April 27th.  As a result, there are a number of changes to the bell schedule.


Attached to this news item are four documents:


CAASPP Testing & Special Bell Schedules

This is a helpful document for all of our students and parents, as it includes bell schedule information for all of April 2016.  Students will receive their testing room and proctor assignments for the CAASPP test in their English Classes on April 12-13.


EAP Program Description

The CAASPP Test also includes the Early Assessment Program (EAP) for the California Community Colleges and California State University system.  Put simply, if a student does well on the CAASPP and meets particular score requirements, they may be considered "college ready" and bi-pass the need for placement tests at the CCC and CSU level.  Read all about the EAP Program on this document.


EAP Program Score Information

The EAP Program has put together a simple two-sheet document that assists students and parents in better understanding the score reports for the EAP and CAASPP tests.  This document was created by the CSU system.



Parents wishing to excuse their students from the CAASPP or Life Science tests this year must complete an Opt Out form.  This is required annually.  Considering that we are near the testing period, please bring any completed and signed Opt Out forms to A134 by Wednesday, April 13, to be removed from testing this year.


Questions?  Please contact Valerie Arbizu via email at varbizu@smuhsd.org or by phone at 650-558-2802.


Thank you,
