Summer Reading Challenge 2019

As we finish up the 2018-19 school year and launch into our much-awaited summer vacation (hurray!), we’re challenging each member of our Raider family to spend some of this precious time in pleasure reading. Research is clear that people of all ages are healthier and smarter when they read (Reading is beneficial for all ages). With our 1-1 technology initiative, all students have accounts with the Bellingham Public Library. We encourage families to take advantage of this opportunity and utilize these physical and online resources. We’ll look forward to hearing about your summer activities and reading adventures when we return in August.


It has been a wonderful school year, and we are so grateful to spend each day with our amazing students. Families, thank you for sharing your teenagers with us, and we wish each of you a happy and safe summer break. Raiders, we’ll see you in August for an awesome 2019-20 school year!


Linda Wise Miller, BHS Principal

Health Information:

As we finish up the school year, our nurses and health services folks want to remind all families of a few things to plan ahead for.

  1. Immunizations: Please check with your medical provider to ensure your child is up to date on their immunizations prior to the first day of school: August 28, 2019.
  2. Health Plans and Other Health Conditions: If your child has a change in their health, will require changes to their health plan or has a health condition that will require accommodations during the school day, please contact your school to discuss your child's needs.
  3. Medications and EpiPens: If your child had medication or an EpiPen at school this year, please make sure you pick it up before after school is dismissed on June 20 and before June 27, or it will be discarded. If you need help with forms or procedures for medications or EpiPens for next year, please contact our office.
