October 2019

This blog is intended to connect our parents, staff and community to Blue Hills Regional Technical School District with a focus on student achievements in academics and Career Technical Education (CTE) including extracurricular activities and sports. Blue Hills Regional Technical School District is a great place to grow and learn.

It's been a very busy first month in a temporary office space while under the building renovation. Mr. Quaglia retired on September 30 and we wish him well as he begins a new chapter.

It's National Principal's Month in October and we are proud to announce our new Principal, Mr. Zini. Also, we have hired our new Academic Director, Mr. Bavuso who will be starting on Tuesday, October 15th. We wish them all the best in their new roles at Blue Hills.

Updates and Information

The school building renovation is wrapping up and it's all starting to come together nicely. There are new windows, doors, floors, restrooms, locker rooms, lights, plumbing. elevators and electrical upgrades. Currently, they are working on the cafeteria kitchen which is due to open the week of October 22. This means hot lunches will begin again for students and staff.

The District Offices, Cosmetology and Culinary Arts program are estimated to open on 11/13/19. The Chateau Restaurant is estimated for turnover on 11/19/19.
