School Closure
Bear Lake County School is now closed due to concerns of COVID-19 as of March 16, 2020. Individual schools will be contacting parents with guidelines and information. Please refer to the CDC Coronavirus guidelines for updated information on how to keep your family safe.

Letter from Dr. Brogan dated April 30,2020:
The Bear Lake School District has been under a school closure directive since March 16th, a total of 24 school days as of today. This has been a challenge for students, parents, and staff to continue to provide the educational process as close to normal as we can under these unusual circumstances. I want to thank all those who have worked tirelessly to see that our students are fed, and continue to learn, as well as the parents and grandparents who have helped in the process. I know that it has not been easy, but you have risen to the challenge.
Earlier this year the Idaho State Board of Education announced a soft closure for all schools through the end of the school year. With that announcement they offered a criteria that schools could in fact return to school if certain steps were met. The first thing that had to be in place was that no social distancing restrictions could be in place. Last week Governor Little announced the “Idaho Rebounds” staged economic recovery plan which includes social distancing requirements at various levels into June.
So after consultation with a representative of the Governor’s Office, the Director of the Southeast Idaho Health District, Idaho State Board of Education, Regional Superintendents, our local health care providers, and our local Bear Lake School Board, we are announcing that we will remain in a soft closure through the end of the academic school year. I believe that we all wish the school year was not going to end like this.
We encourage you as parents to help your students finish up their academic requirements for the year. Plans are underway to honor our senior graduates in a way that meets group size gathering restrictions. These seniors have worked hard for 12 years and we feel it is important to recognize their accomplishments.
I wish you each the best life can offer. Always remember we are Bear Lake Strong.
Superintendent Gary Brogan

Bear Lake School District consists of three elementary schools, a middle school, a high school, and an alternative high school.

Bear Lake School District shares a common boundary with Bear Lake County. The southern border of the county is the State of Utah while the eastern border of the county is the State of Wyoming. The district includes the communities (to name a few) Fish Haven, St. Charles, Paris, Montpelier, Bennington, Bern, Dingle, Geneva, and Georgetown. Paris is the county seat while Montpelier is the largest community. The county is surrounded by mountains.

Bear Lake Valley offers the best of two worlds. Residents live in a quiet, rural setting that is close to all the advantages of a major metropolitan area. The community shares a strong moral conviction with a family oriented environment.

Many residents make their living in agriculture, small businesses, tourist activities, or in occupations related to the mining industry. The community has it's own hospital and a variety of health care providers. The residents enjoy tremendous recreational opportunities. Bear Lake provides a beautiful setting for a variety of water sports. Fishing and hunting are very popular activities throughout the year. There are miles of groomed trails for snowmobile enthusiasts. Cross country skiing is popular and there are several ski lodges in the area.
