Dear Parent and Students,

Welcome to the 2021 – 2022 school year.  I hope you’ve been enjoying a wonderful summer in Maine and are ready for another year at Brunswick High School.

Over the summer, the staff and I have been busy preparing for your arrival.  In addition to extensive cleaning of the building, we have also trimmed trees and spruced up the grounds; the building and campus look great!  Also, the Off Campus Learning Center has moved from the Hawthorne School to Coffin School.  The newly renovated spaces of the Coffin School will enhance the learning experiences for students.  For students attending the Off Campus Learning Center, more information regarding this location change is forthcoming via e-mail from Mr. Routhier and Mr. Thompson.

We are delighted to announce our new staff members:  Ryan Bullock, Special Education Ed Tech; Bender Caiola, Social Studies; Brian Choate, Math; April Doane, Special Education; Trent Trombley, Custodian; Meredith Vogel, Social Worker; and Aaron Watson, Athletic Director.  When your paths cross, please help us welcome them to BHS.

For your planning purposes, August 30th is a full day for 9th & 10th grade students only, with lunch provided.  Mr. Gagnon and Ms. Cook will e-mail more information about the schedule for this day.  Students will spend this initial day engaged in a variety of orientation activities including ice breakers, introductions to their classes and teachers, meetings with guidance counselors, study skills advising and tours of the campus.  On August 31st, all students (9th – 12th) will be in session for the full day. Additionally, I refer you to the Superintendent’s letter datedAugust 19, 2021. The letter highlights key components of the School Board approved Health and Safety Plan. Please review the plan with your student before August 30th.

For new students and parents, please spend some time exploring the BHS website.  It is full of useful information, dates, names, forms, policies, and procedures covering a vast range of topics and questions you may have.  If you do not find specific information or answers to your questions on our website, please contact the main office reception.

As principal, I look forward to working with you to maintain a safe and enriching learning environment for all students.  Until our paths cross, welcome to Brunswick High School.


Troy P. Henninger
