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 7,2020:
Yesterday the Idaho State Board of Education extended the soft closure that we are currently under through the rest of the academic school year. They did however, leave the door open to allow school to resume if social distancing orders are lifted. They are planning on developing criteria for that to happen in their next meeting on April 13, 2020.
What this means for the Bear Lake School District is that we will continue to instruct students on line as we have for a little over two weeks. We also will continue to serve lunches as we have since school was released in March.
I know that online education has been a challenge for parents and students. I have spoken with many parents and have had lots of praise from them on how the process has gone. Most parents have expressed how their students want to be in school. I think as educators, we would echo those feelings.
In these difficult times we are called on to accomplish challenging tasks. The safety and success of our students rank highest of all our priorities. Students need to know that it is essential for them to work hard and complete their assignments. They need to treat this situation with the same importance as they would if they were in a brick and mortar school every day. If they are struggling with concepts or lessons, I strongly encourage them to reach out to your teachers for help. We will continue to make adjustments to our system to enhance the learning process as necessary.
To our students I say, You CAN do this. Years from now you will look back on this experience and know that it was something unique to only a certain generation that you were a part of. Be positive and take the opportunity to make the most of the situation we find ourselves in.
Work hard, and be safe,
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.
