We are in the middle of the year and having a great time! It is wonderful to see the fantastic instruction that is happening every day and students flourishing. I really appreciate all the support you are showing your child(ren) and BLHS as we strive towards our goal of 100% graduation.
As I think about our goal of 100% graduation, I feel it is important to share with you one of the largest barriers students face in reaching it. Attendance. It is common sense that students need to be in school and have good attendance in order to learn content and master skills in order to graduate. The research clearly shows that the biggest risk factor for failing and dropping out is attendance. So what qualifies as good attendance?

Our ability to staff our schools appropriately is dependent upon well qualified, dependable substitutes. The District substitute pay rate is $135 per day and $76 per half day. Visit the Sumner School District Website to apply online.
Teacher Tuesday is a weekly opportunity for the district to highlight highly effective educators in our schools making a difference. Every Tuesday a teacher is recognized for their continuous excellence in teaching. To nominate a teacher for Teacher Tuesday, email email@example.com.
Online Athletic Clearances for High Schools
For the 2014-15 School Year, the Sumner School District will be moving to online athletic clearances for high school athletes. The online process will provide a convenient way for families to clear athletes entirely online. Clearances will run through our partner company called, FamilyID. FamilyID is a secure registration platform that provides our families with a user-friendly way to register and clear athletes for our sports programs. When registered through FamilyID, the system will track all clearance information for each athlete.
Coaches will be notified of all cleared athletes prior to the first practice. Athletes MUST be cleared prior to participation in any practice or competition.
High Schools will continue to clear athletes in person for those families that need it. Please contact the high school directly for more information.
