    What's New?

    Lots of exciting things happening at BJHS! The webpage is being updated almost daily. Please check often for new and changing faculty, forms, and information.

    The new Student Handbook and Bell Schedules are located in the drop-down menu for About Our School or you can click here Student Handbook and here Bell Schedules.

    BJHS strictly enforces the St. Mary Parish Uniform Policy. This can be found on our school website under Parents/Students-BJHS Dress Code or by clicking here BJHS Dress Code.

    Please check it out before making your purchases of school uniforms this summer! We also kindly request that your child purchases a clear or mesh backpack. This greatly helps our staff to scan and check all bags as they enter the school building- your child’s safety is a top priority for BJHS!

    If you have any questions, please be sure to contact the Administration of BJHS by a phone call or email.

    Special Note: Homemade jackets and sweatshirts must be of one of the colors mentioned in the dress code for jackets and sweatshirts and can only contain the following colors as trim or lettering: black, gold, white, or navy. Also, in accordance with parish policy, only the following words may be added to the sweatshirts/jackets: Berwick, Panthers, or BJHS.

    We also have new criteria for Panther PROWLers and Clever Cats! This is also located under Parents/Students or by clicking here Panther PROWLers and Clever Cats.

Character Counts!


  • Scam-Free Vacations

    Posted by Susan Dupre on 5/23/2019

    In her article Make It a Scam-Free Vacation, Lisa Lake from the Federal Trade Commission offers steps to prevent your dream vacation from becoming a nightmare.

    First: Do your homework.

    • In addition to getting recommendations from family and friends, do some online research on travel companies, hotels and agents with the words scam, review, or complaint. 
    • Consider extra costs.  Resort fees and taxes can add $50 or more to a nightly hotel cost.
    • Before you book, read the cancellation and refund policies for any destination.
    • Only buy travel insurance from a licensed agent.
    • Bring a copy of the trip confirmation details, including the rate and extras you were promised.

    Second: Be travel smart.

    • Don't pay for "prize" vacations. No real company will ask you to pay for a prize--and be careful about booking with a resort or timeshare offer, which may include the need to pay taxes or fees, plus high-pressure sales pitches. 
    • Don't sign anything until you know what you are getting.
    • Use a credit card, which gives you more protection than paying with cash or a debit card.

    Third: Protect your identity.

    • Take only the IDs and credit/debit cards you really need.  Also, make copies of these, too, and carry the copies in a separate location so that you can more easily report lost or stolen cards.
    • Bring a copy of your insurance card. 
    • Don't assume a Wi-Fi hotspot in a hotel, restaurant, or airport is secure. Avoid using mobile apps that require personal or financial information or use a VPN (Virtual Private Network) service.
