Early this morning, the Blaine Police Department notified Blaine School District Administration of a post to Snapchat, by a Middle Student, that depicts an abstract character holding a weapon with the caption "Enough is Enough" The Blaine Police Department has met with the family of the student and at this time does not consider the post to represent a credible threat against a specific individual, or the school in general. That being said, this student will not be permitted to return to school until an extended investigation into this matter can be conducted. At this time there is not a projected timeframe for the student to be allowed to return to school. The safety of students and staff remains our highest priority.

Have a great Spring Break! School resumes on April 8.
Blaine School District is cancelling school on Thursday, February 14. Our maintenance and grounds staff have done an incredible job of removing 12-14 inches of snow off of campus parking lots and sidewalks over the past three days. We also greatly appreciate the efforts of both the City of Blaine and Whatcom County road clearing crews. However, there remains too much compact snow and ice across many areas of the District to be able to run our busses safely, especially on secondary roads. Once school resumes next week, we will start the process of determining the impact of this extended storm on the school calendar. Please stay safe, and we look forward to seeing everyone on Tuesday.
Due to ongoing winter weather conditions, all schools will again be closed on Wednesday, February 13. All campus activities are also cancelled.
