All Together for All Students

Our hearts and thoughts are with all in our community who have been impacted by the Marshall Fire. SHMS students who need to speak with a counselor can sign-up through our Counselor web page on this site or come to the main office at any time during regular school hours. We also encourage students to think of additional trusted adults at school that they feel they could go to if they need anything.

We are here for our SHMS Cougars!

The importance of completing free & reduced price meals application

It is very important to complete an Application for Free & Reduced Meals for this upcoming school year.  BVSD is proud to be able to continue offering free meals to all students, thanks to a waiver granted by the USDA. We also want to let families know that school meal applications are good for more than just free meals.
