Staff Video

BHES has HIGH HOPES for an amazing school year.  Be sure to like our page on Facebook and see the amazing video our staff created to kick off 2019-20.  Facebook is a great resource for parents to find out information about special events and activities taking place at BHES.


Celebration  & Food Policies at BHES

There will be three recognized celebrations during the school year in which parents are invited to attend.  The celebrations include; a Fall Party, Valentine’s Day, and birthday celebrations (at the discretion of the classroom teacher). For all “parent invited” events, as well as ALL celebrations, we try to focus on all aspects of a celebration - activities, games, and more.  


Some of our celebrations do include food.  For our celebrations which include snacks/food, please follow the policies outlined: All snacks must be purchased from a store and packaged with a nutrition label on them.  Without a label, we are unable to serve the snack, as we must be able to determine if the snack can be eaten by our gluten-allergy, peanut allergy, red dye allergy, diabetic, and lactose intolerant students.   Questions regarding our policy may be directed to Nurse Kelly Strader by calling 217-759-7251 or by emailing
