    Although summer is a great time for a family get together, vacations, or just enjoying the great Colorado weather it is also a perfect time start planning for the fall and the start of a new school year. The 2016-2017 school year looks to be another great year at Brighton High School filled with new adventures and opportunities for students to grow and learn. As most of you know that have kids at BHS, we moved to a split schedule last year to help accommodate for the student growth in our area. The split schedule will continue this year although we have reduced it from an eleven period day to a ten period day. This is not a huge change in the split schedule, however, it will mean that kids will get out no later than 4:15 pm.


    Registration will be held during the first and second weeks of August in the south hall of the high school. The registration schedule will be as follows:

    •  Seniors will register from 8:00 am to 11:00 am on Friday, August 5th.
    •  Juniors will register from 8:00 am to 11:00 am on Monday, August 8th.
    •  Sophomores will register from 8:00 am to 11:00 am on Tuesday, August 9th.
    •  Freshmen will register from 8:00 am to 11:00 am on Wednesday, August 10th.
    •  Freshmen Orientation: Freshmen Only from 7 am to 2:30 pm on Thursday, August 18, 2016

    If your student is not able to come to registration, it is imperative that you call the school before August 1st letting us know your students name, and the grade he/she will be entering. This information is critical, and without it, we will not be able to guarantee your student a schedule and will have to fit them into classes wherever possible when school starts. Make-up registration will be on Friday, August 19th at 7:00 am.


    Remember, schedule changes can be requested for the following reasons: Incomplete core schedule (one or more classes missing), duplicate classes, pre-requisite issue (failed or never took the previous class in the sequence), required class is not on the schedule.

    Important Registration Dates:

    August 1st students’ schedules will be available on Infinite Campus. Please note, counselors may make slight modifications/changes prior to the start of school.

    The deadline for student requested changes to their schedule for reasons outlined above will be Tuesday, September 1st, 2015. Student transcripts will reflect WF for any changes after the deadline. Because BHS is above capacity, it is strongly advised that you check your schedule and make any necessary correction during registration.

    Should you have any questions regarding registration, please call the offices at 303-655-4200 between the hours of 8:00 am and 3:00 pm.


    You are encouraged to come with your student on the day of registration. All of the approved fees will be assessed and collected on registration day. In addition, you may purchase a yearbook. The fees that will be charged on that day will be:

    •  Class activities/materials ($65 for seniors; $40 for underclassmen) – These charges cover the class related expenses that each grade level incurs, for instance; planners, homecoming expenses, prom, student ID, graduation, etc. This money is collected and kept in an account for that particular class and used when needed for various expenses related directly to the class.
    •  P. E. Uniforms ($15) – Each student that is registered for a P.E. class is required to wear a uniform.
    •  Yearbook – ($55; $60) - These may be purchased at registration. There is a form enclosed which explains the options available.
    •  Parking (There will be no Parking Fee for the 2016-2017 school year) Each day, parking will be on a first come first served basis. Permits will be allotted on your assigned day of registration only. Students will need to provide their driver's license, registration, and proof of insurance.

    Individual class fees will be assessed for classes requiring additional materials. Please see the fees chart also included in this mailing.  


    All school-assessed fees are due and payable at registration. They may be paid with either cash, check or credit card (by credit card on-line only at One check made payable to Brighton High School should be used to pay all fees. Students who have not paid all appropriately assessed fees will not be allowed to participate in athletics or extra-curricular activities until all outstanding fees or fines are paid. Check with your school to make sure you are up to date and stay in the game.


    Please note that an outside company handles school pictures. Information on purchasing school pictures will be sent under separate cover.


    I would like to invite all parents and students to join us for Back-to-School Night on Tuesday, August 16th, from 5:00 pm to 7:30 pm. This will be an opportunity for parents and students to meet teachers, find classrooms, and receive class expectations. Information will be available in our lobby that evening. Also, a representative from the district transportation office will be available to answer any questions you may have regarding bussing.



    All the pages of the registration packet are listed individually so that you can review all the important information. Feel free to print any of the registration information listed; however there are two forms, the Internet Usage Agreement form and the Student Policy Handbook/Rights and Responsibilities form, that you will need to complete and turn it at registration. If, for some reason, you cannot print these documents there will be printed copies available in the main office and the counseling office during regular office hours.


    Important Policy Information for Parents and Students:

      • You will see the BHS attendance policy right here on the BHS website and in the registration information. This is a very important document for parents to share with their children before school starts. Attending every class every day is the most critical factor in the success of any high school student.
    • The dress code at Brighton High school was developed to help create a respectful learning environment for students, staff, and the community. It is important for students to learn that they need to dress appropriately for different venues such as work, home, school, church, or hanging out with their friends. It is important that parents review the Dress Code Policy with their children and buy clothing that supports the policy and a respectful environment.
