Borah High School
From the Principal's Desk
The 2022-2023 school year is off to a great start. This school year will include our traditional athletics, assemblies and extracurricular activities. I encourage students to get involved in one or all of these activities in tandem with in person learning and academics. Parent-Teacher Conferences will be held on Tuesday, October 18 (4-7 PM) and Wednesday, October 19 (4-7 PM). There will be no school on October 21. Parent-Teacher Conferences are a great opportunity to meet your student's teachers and check on your student's progress through the 1st Quarter which ends on October 14. Please contact your student's teachers and counselor anytime you feel your student is in need of additional academic support.

BORAH FOOD PANTRY
Key Club and the El-Ada Community Action Partnership are hosting a mobile food pantry the 3rd Thursday of each month throughout the school year. Distribution will take place in the front parking lot at Borah from 4pm-6pm. You or your parents can stop by and pick up a box of food on your way home. Food boxes vary by month but often include fresh or canned fruit, vegetables, meat and essential household items. We distribute to roughly 100 families each month and our supply is limited, so first come, first served.
Current dates for fall 2022:
- September 15th
- October 20th

Borah Support Groups
Borah is offering support groups to all students and are accessed by both those seeking connections and those needing intensive support. The purpose of a support group within the high school setting is to provide participants with a comforting, safe environment where they feel free to express themselves. In addition to providing emotional support, group participation also allows students to establish meaningful and trusting relationships with their peers. If you would like to sign your student up for a group or have any questions, feel free to contact our school social worker Becky woodland at firstname.lastname@example.org or 208.854.6916
- All students are required to obtain a permit to leave if they are leaving during school hours.
