Good evening students, staff, families and community,
Thank you to all those who were able to attend our Q&A event this week. I find this to be a great opportunity to connect with families and community members around their questions. We are hoping to return to in-person for those events soon (Supper with the Superintendent). Please watch for upcoming announcements.
As we continue to progress through the COVID pandemic our local county numbers are improved. Starting this Monday, March 14, 2022 masks will be optional for students in our buildings. We want any person who chooses to continue wearing a mask in our facilities to know that they will be welcome to do so. Our building administrators have met with students and communicated the changes beginning Monday. If you have any questions please contact your student’s campus or the district office.
At this time the Blaine School District will be recalling all district issued hot spots. We are not anticipating needing them for the remainder of the school year. All district issued hot spots are due no later than March 28th, to their school office. Please be sure to return all components of the hot spot. This includes the hot spot itself, the charging cord and charge block, as well as the box the device was issued in.
Did you know our district has a growing CTE (Community and Technical Education) Department? We offer a wide variety of options for our students from welding to horticulture, business law and culinary arts, to name a few. This week some of our students participated in a regional Cupcake Wars competition. Teams first competed against other BHS culinary students, and a panel of lucky volunteer judges selected the winners. Then four students went on to represent our school at the regional competition held at Meridian High School. Our Borderites represented us well and brought home the win. Congratulations!
Upcoming this week are a couple of Fine Art events in the Performing Arts center
Tuesday March 15th - Festival Concert (HS) - 7:00 pm
Thursday March 17th - Festival Concert (MS 7th & 8th) - 7:00 pm
Details on the rescheduled 6th grade concert will be provided soon
Spring Sports for Blaine High School students begin competing this week and Middle School Spring Season starts soon as well. Please visit goborderites.com for schedules of upcoming events. You can also visit our athletics pages for spring sports season dates, online registration information and a WIAA physical form.

It’s a great night to be a Borderite, and, as always, a great night to be your superintendent.
