Benton Consolidated High School Students and Parents/ Guardians:
We hope that everyone has had an enjoyable summer. Students will begin the 2022-2023 school year on August 9. Listed below is information related to the registration process.
Online registration will be available July 18-28. Parents will be able to register your student for school through the online platform.
For those families that have connectivity issues or need assistance with the online registration process, a parent/guardian may come to BCHS for online registration on July 27 from 12-3pm or July 28 from 8:30-11:30am. Please enter through the main entrance at BCHS. All students should come to BCHS on either day (July 27 from 12-3pm or July 28 from 8:30-11:30am) for picture day, pay $10 student fee, make payment for lunch and/ or breakfast, order a yearbook, and take care of parking permit information (Soph, Jr, Sr).
Online Registration Information
Online registration will be done through our Student Information System, TeacherEase. In order to access the online registration system, you will need to have an active email address tied to your student. You cannot create accounts, accounts can only be created on our end. We have already created accounts for the email addresses in our records. If we have your email address, you will receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org with a link to activate your account. If you have not received an email from TeacherEase, please send an email to OnlineRegistration@bentonhighschool.org with your name, the names of any students that you will be registering, and your relationship to each of those students, so that we can create an account for you. Understand, you cannot complete online registration through a student’s email address, it HAS to be a parent/guardian’s email address added by the school.
Upon clicking the link in the email, you will be taken to a page where you can set your password. After that, you will be able to login either through your email address and password, or, if you have a Gmail address, by clicking on “log in with Google” on the TeacherEase sign-in page (located by going to teacherease.com and clicking “Sign In”). You will not be able to do anything until online registration is made available, beginning on July 18th. After it is made available, upon logging in, you will be taken immediately to the online registration page. Follow the onscreen instructions to make your way through the process. Keep in mind that any fields marked with an asterisk (*) are required to continue. At any point, if you need to leave and come back, you can click “Save Only” to mark your place in an incomplete document, or you can click “Save and Mark Complete” to move on to the next part of registration.
When you reach the Health Forms section of online registration, you will see a number of printable forms for different health needs. Download whichever forms apply to your student (asthma, seizures, freshman physicals), print them out, and consult with your student’s doctor on filling them out. Health forms will need to be delivered to the school nurse once school begins, or mailed (see the Medical Information section further down in this letter).
After completing all of the forms in online registration, you will be able to apply for free/reduced lunches. After applying for free/reduced lunches, please wait at least one business day for your application to be approved or denied. You will be unable to pay fees online while the application is pending.
After choosing whether or not to apply for free/reduced lunches, you will have the opportunity to pay your fees online. There is a small convenience fee for credit/debit card transactions that will be added. This fee is added by the online payment system for processing, not the school, and does not go to the school.
BCHS will waive all book rental fees for students for the 2022-2023 school year. But, ALL students will pay a $10 student fee. Please mail a check to BCHS, pay in person at registration on July 27 or 28 or pay online during registration. For any questions about this process, or if you have any problems filling out the forms/paying fees online, please feel free to contact us at OnlineRegistration@bentonhighschool.org.
A reminder to parents- please mail in all freshmen physicals, freshmen and senior shot records and any other medical health plans or information to Candy Pankey (School Nurse). All paperwork for the nurse office is due by July 18. Any paperwork that is not turned in by that date is due at registration. A Medical Information Form is required for every student. If your child has a medical condition, the Medical Action Plan and a Doctor’s note is required.
Freshmen “Opening Day”
The Freshmen “opening day” will take place on July 28 from 12-2pm. This is an opportunity for Freshmen to become more familiar with the building and also the daily routines at BCHS. Members of the Student Council and Yearbook staff will serve as guides and answer questions. Mr. Eldridge will lead the program. This is not mandatory.
School Pictures, Parking Permits, and Yearbooks
School pictures will be taken for students on July 27 from 12-3pm or from 8:30-11:30am on July 28. Parking permits will be issued to seniors, juniors, and sophomores that have their license. Students that plan to drive to school will need a parking permit. Please be prepared to fill out parking permit information on July 27 or 28 to receive a permit. There will be no cost for a parking permit for the 2022-2023 school year. Also, yearbook order/ pick up is available on July 27 or 28.
Chromebooks will be distributed to students during their 1st hour class on the first day of school, August 9. Any student that is not present on August 9 will pick up their Chromebook in the Library.
