Composting at BHS

Beverly High School is committed to improving our environment and will begin composting at lunch starting January 21st. This is a student run initiative which will support our effort to be a green school.

We will have 5 composting stations in the Cafeteria – these areas are where we will sort our waste at the end of lunch. There will be three containers at each station to sort lunch waste. It is quick and takes little effort. Members of our Composting Club will be there to help make this easy. This is similar to the composting pilot program we ran last spring.

Pertussis Advisory

Dear Families, please be advised that we have received confirmation of a few more cases of Pertussis (Whooping cough) here at BHS. Your school nurses, along with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health strongly recommend that you check in with your doctor to see if your child has had or is eligible for a booster vaccination. This is one of the best methods available to prevent or lesson the seriousness of the disease. Once again, please be watching your child is getting a persistent cough that may be more spasmodic in nature. If you think your child is getting a persistent cough or is showing signs of the illness, please contact the school nurses or the Department of Public Health before sending them to school.
