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.

With the extended number of days lost to inclement weather during the month of February, five (5) to date in our case, Whatcom County districts are starting the process of projecting calendar implications. Our 2018-19 calendar calls for the first three days lost to be made up on June 14-17-18, and that is what we anticipate at this time. As the additional two days are eligible for waiver application to OSPI, we are in the process of considering recommendation of said application to the Board. Once approved by OSPI, and provided that there are no additional days lost, we can move forward with formal designation of June 18 as the final day of the current school year.
