Weekly Message From Principal Medrano (Sept. 18, 2020)

Hello Bruin Families,

Thank you for such a supportive week. It has been exciting to see teachers and students reconnect with one another. We are looking forward to the opportunities this year will bring.
We would like to share that our bell schedule will slightly change starting ​Monday, September 21st​. We had built-in additional time for meal distribution, but without students face-to-face, we will need to accommodate for the free meal pick-up. AM session will start at 8:20 AM and PM session will end at 3:40 PM. In addition, we will be offering virtual Back to School Nights using Google Meet. This is a time for families to meet the teachers and learn about the middle school experience.
● Brookings Harbor K12 Online Academy will be Tuesday, September 22, 2020, from 5:30-6:00
● AMS Comprehensive Distance Learning will be Thursday, September 24, 2020, from 5:30-6:00
Bell Schedule by Class Period
Best Regards,
Nicole Medrano, AMS Principal

Superintendent's Update (Aug. 31, 2020): What's new in health and safety and instruction for Fall 2020

We are looking forward to getting our schools reopened this school year. We have incorporated a wide range of measures to keep all students and staff healthy and safe. While the start of this school year will look different, our focus is to ensure that school continues to be a positive, safe, friendly, and welcoming place for all students. While we know there will be challenges, by working together we can positively and successfully support our students’ growth and learning.

Update on state and county metrics for school reopening

Under a special exemption that uses a different set of metrics that must be met for grades Kindergarten through 3rd Grade, Curry County remains on track for BHSD to begin the year with a hybrid of in-person half days and distance learning for Grades K-3, with the first classroom day on Friday, Sept. 11

About Us

  • By the Numbers We currently serve 364 sixth-through-eighth grade students and have approximately 45 staff members. We follow a six-period day schedule with a Pride class at the end of the day. Our core classes and electives range from sixth-grade academy to drawing, computer science, choir, band and orchestra.
  • Bruin Pride Azalea encourages students and staff to have a growth mindset. This allows us all to see challenges as opportunities. In addition, we’ve put the focus on building a culture that fosters relationships by “connecting before correcting” and being helpful, not hurtful in our actions and interactions.
  • Athletics and Activities Azalea offers many opportunities for students to get involved. They can participate in football, cross country, basketball, volleyball, wrestling, dance/cheer, and track and field. We also have after school clubs. Some opportunities are Homework Center, Dungeons and Dragons, Multicultural Club, and Dance.
  • Seismic Safety UpdatePhase One of a seismic safety retrofit project was completed in the summer of 2018 with money from a $1.5 million grant from Business Oregon. We are excited to announce that we have received another $2.5 million for Phase Two to retrofit our gym, which will start summer 2020.
