With Dr. Baker’s timely updates and the district’s comprehensive FAQ, this letter will focus on BHS-specific activities within the district priorities of safety, food, child care, and learning.

PS: This Connect-ED program is a partnership between the Bellingham School District and the Bellingham Public Library. Program overview:

  • Each student will have a limited-use public library account. This means they can check out two physical items from any public library in Whatcom County, and have full access to digital resources, including ebooks and eaudiobooks.
  • There will not be a physical library card issued. The student’s barcode is the letters “BE” followed by their 10 digit student ID.
  • The pin is 1234
  • To download ebooks or eaudiobooks, use the Libby app.
