Baraga Area Schools will be having their Kindergarten Registration on Friday, April 23rd. This will be an all day affair, so the Little Vikes and the Kindergarten classes will not meet this day. The teachers will be letting the parents know more about this. Please read the attached flyer and if you have any questions please give us a call.
2021 Summer Youth Soccer registration is now open. Many of the life skills that players learn through soccer are beneficial in later life, how to form and build relationships, developing a sense of co-operation, and how to handle adversity are all key qualities that will benefit the players in adult life. Please visit HoughtonFC.com to register today for players 3 to 19 years old." Gratefully, Jen Bach Communications Director, Houghton FC

The car accident on February 24th brought some life changes to the Lamson family. With all the children back home, and Kayla in wheel chair, they needed a way for her to get into and out of the house. Mr. Filpus's Industrial Education classes from Baraga Area Schools stepped up to help out one of their own. The Computer Aided Drafting & Design class designed a ramp and helped to put together a materials list needed to build it. Other Industrial Education classes then used their expertise and tools to make the ramp and this week they delivered and installed it at the Lamson house.
The 2nd grade had homework this week, as the Easter Bunny gave them the assignment of babysitting some eggs he dropped off this week. They took them home each night and wrote in their daily baby book. Today the Easter Bunny returned and made them all honorary Easter Bunny helpers since they did such a great job raising their peeps.
The Little Vikes have been sitting in their eggs all week and today they hatched while they were at lunch
With the up-tick in Covid positives and with some students having to quarantine, there are many questions out there. The best place to get those answers is the Western UP Health Department and the number to call is 906-482-7382 and choose the covid prompt. More than likely you will have to leave a message, but I am told that the messages are checked often and calls are returned.
With Spring Break coming up, it might be a good idea to take home all of our masks and give them a good cleaning for the start of the 4th quarter. Might be a good idea for an Easter present as well, so new masks. Thanks and have a great break.
Dear Baraga Families, Baraga Area Schools would like to update parents and community members with the latest on COVID-19 issues. There seems to be an increase in the number of positive cases throughout the state. This up-tick in cases is also being seen in our region. Whether this is due to the new variant that seems to be hitting down state or not, we are seeing a rise in positive cases here in Baraga County. Baraga Schools has had two positive cases, one in the elementary and one in the high school. We do not know the origin of these cases. The school has followed the guidelines set by the local and state health departments, including notifying all close contacts. We will continue to follow the guidelines and still feel that schools are one of the safest places for students. Please help keep our school open during these challenging times and thank you for your continued support. Stay safe, Richard Sarau, Superintendent Baraga Area Schools
With Spring Break right around the corner, Baraga Area Schools and 31 Backpacks are working together to ensure that our kids aren't hungry during their time away from school. Mrs. Rinkinen has been handing out food and other commonly needed household goods since yesterday and will continue until all of our students who have signed up for this previously, have been served.
