Attention Athletes:

Sports physicals for the 2016 – 17 school year will be offered on Monday, August 1 at the High School.  Time and room location will be determined at a later date. These physicals are FREE OF CHARGE to you and a great way to get them out of the way and free you up to participate in any sport for the 2016-17 school year. If you plan to get your physical done here at the HS on August 1, you must turn your physical form into the athletic office no later than Monday, July 25.  There will be NO late forms accepted after that date and athletes will not be able to receive their physical  August 1 if forms are not turned in on time. Stop by the athletic office to pick up the physical form packet to get it returned on time!

The school year is quickly approaching and BSSD is excited to continue our secondary Chromebook initiative this year.

9th Grade students will receive their Chromebooks during Dawg Day Freshman Orientation.

All other secondary students will keep their current Chromebook.  Please remember to bring them with you on the first day of school!

Protection plans that were purchased during the 14-15 school year will continue to be in effect for the 15-16 school year.

Security Camera Installation on District Buses

In the Big Spring School District, we continually strive to ensure the safety and security of our students.  For that reason, the District installed security cameras on all district buses over the summer.  If your child rides a district bus (to/from school, activity buses, field trips, etc.), he/she may be subject to video recording.  For more information, please contact the District Transportation Coordinator at 717-776-2408.
