Health Department Recommendations

The Blaine School District has received a notification from Whatcom County Department of Health regarding their recommendations for reopening schools for the 2020-2021 school year. The district is in the process of reviewing this new recommendation and will hold a special board meeting tomorrow, Wednesday, August 5, 2020 at 6:30 P.M. 

District staff have been participating in regular communications with schools throughout our county as well as public health officials.  It has been, and remains our goal to have a deliberate and intentional plan for reopening, guided by current data and forecasts from the Washington and Whatcom County Health Departments, that protects the health and safety of students, staff and the community at large. We will be reviewing our plan over the next twenty-four hours, and plan to have a message for our community following the board meeting.
