  • Stay Connected with BJHS Yearbook!

    Posted by Kelly Sumrall on 3/25/2020

    For all of us, the COVID-19 pandemic is a rapidly changing situation and one that has us planning for uncertainty. Per usual, the culture of a yearbook is remarkable. We may not have a connection to our school right now or even our neighborhood, but our yearbook still has blank pages to be filled. Now, more than ever, the yearbook staff needs your help. We’re asking that you send in pictures using eShare on your phone or computer. By sending in pictures of what’s going on with you, we can continue to capture the remainder of the year. Please send in school appropriate images and avoid sending in heavily filtered images! Each photo will be screened and approved and not every picture submitted will be used. Visit or search for it in the App Store! Our school code is BJHS.

  • Be Wary of Open Enrollment Scams

    Posted by Susan Dupre on 11/13/2019

    Two important deadlines are quickly approaching for adding or changing your health coverage if you use one of the following options: 

    • Medicare:  December 7
    • Affordable Care Act (ACA): December 15

    Gretchen Abraham from the FTC's Division of Consumer & Business Education has shared the following tips on the Federal Trade Commission's website to help you avoid being scammed:

    For Medicare:

    • There are no Medicare sales representatives. Anyone who tried to sell you Medicare insurance is a scammer. 
    • You do NOT have to join a prescription drug plan to keep your Medicare insurance. Medicare Part D is voluntary and has nothing to do with your regular Medicare coverage.
    • Telephone scammers posing as "official agents" may ask for personal information, offer free equipment or services, ask for a quick payment, or threaten you. Just hang up.
    • Help with Medicare is available at or 1-800-MEDICARE.

    For Affordable Care Act:

    • Compare plans and quality ratings at, where you can also enroll.
    • This year, you can also sign up for an ACA plan directly with certain certified partners.  Make sure a company is on the Certified Partner list before giving them your information. 
    • After you apply for ACA, you may get a phone call from the Marketplace asking you to verify information or supply additional information. If you are unsure about trusting the caller, ask the representative to mail you a letter with instructions for completing your application.
    • Help for ACA is available from the Marketplace Call Center at 1-800-318-2596.  You can also meet with a local assistant in your community who will offer free assistance. Local assistance can be found through the Local Assistance tool.
