Freshman New Student Orientation

2018- 2019 Freshman Class of 2022 and New Student Orientation

Wednesday, August 22, 2018
10 am – 12 pm
Lunch: 11:30 am – 12 pm
BHS Campus

This is a day set aside for Freshmen and students new to Berkley High School.  Students will receive their schedule of classes, student planners, assigned locker information, and learn more about high school events.  Please drop your student off in the various parking lots around the school so that they can make their way to the courtyard.  The entrance to the Auditorium is in the courtyard on Catalpa.  Please do not stop on Catalpa to drop off your student.  There is no long term parking in the circular drive but students can be dropped off there as well.  We want the student orientation day to be a pleasant and safe experience for everyone.

Online Paperless Student Packet must be completed for Schedule Pick-Up
