5 Things to Know About Fall Semester

September 04, 2020
By Tori Hittner

While local governance prevents us from beginning the school year with in-person instruction, our staff has worked hard to prepare the best possible experience for our Blanchet community. Here are a few things to keep in mind as we start this unique school year.


1. Blanchet students will receive personalized instruction four days a week and be enrolled in the typical course load of seven classes.

Our administration developed a three-part schedule to help students stay on track and manage a normal academic workload. Mondays and Wednesdays follow a “Blue Schedule,” while Tuesdays and Thursdays follow a “Gray Schedule.” Friday is utilized as a “Work Day.” Expectations and timelines for those schedules are listed below.

Students will engage in their digital courses via Google Classroom, which can be accessed here--along with several other online resources. Blanchet will still be offering letter grades to value the effort and performance of our students.



2. Honors and AP courses are still available.

Blanchet is committed to providing a superior college preparatory education, even during digital learning. Our students have access to the same advanced classes they would in an in-person setting, with knowledgeable teachers at the ready for individualized instruction.


3. Blanchet is still offering electives.

Unlike many schools in the area, Blanchet has the opportunity to offer all of its normal elective classes. Our elective instructors worked hard over the summer to re-craft their curriculums, create take-home kits, and find other clever ways to keep students engaged.


4. Students will still be able to socialize through co-curricular activities.

Activities like athletic workouts, drama rehearsals, and club meetings are still allowed on campus under the current State of Oregon guidelines. To view the current athletic calendar for both Mid High and High School, click here. To participate in these workouts, a student must complete the Athletic Participation Form, have a current physical on file, and submit a Concussion Form. Participation in these activities is free.  

All visitors to campus will have their temperature taken and must wear face coverings at all times. 


5. Perhaps more than ever, our staff is dedicated to the success and growth of our students.

Our faculty and staff will miss seeing students in person every day; we really wanted to be on campus, too! Luckily, our small size and extensive preparation will allow us to return to in-person protocol as soon as it’s allowed. We ask that students and their families offer our teachers patience in the coming weeks, as this is an adjustment for them, as well. 

Whenever possible, we are trying to get both students and staff on campus. We are currently finalizing plans to provide in-person study halls during Cav Club time blocks. Students would be able to come to school and work on their own devices under teacher supervision.

Our development team is planning a handful of special, socially-distanced events, spirit days, and surprises to keep our community feeling connected and engaged. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us directly.

Businesses of our Blanchet Community

May 13, 2020
By Tori Hittner

We as a Blanchet community are blessed. We are blessed to have our faith, to learn together, and to shelter in place in comfort--and we are blessed to have each other. 

Many of our current and former Blanchet families own their own businesses. While this “pause” on normal life has been stressful for all of us, it can be particularly uncertain for small businesses that cannot operate or cater to their customers in a regular manner. With this in mind, we decided to create a list of some local, Blanchet community-owned or operated businesses for other community members to support. This is by no means an exhaustive list, and we’d love to continue to add to it! Please email us if you have a business to add.

A large part of what makes Blanchet so special is its community. We are surrounded by people of quality and kindness, people who support and bolster each other. If your family is interested and financially able, we humbly suggest the following companies to support with your business in the coming weeks.

Please be sure to check individual websites for updated hours and processes.
