Some Blaine County students will get to spend some of their summer fun in summer school.
Summer School Principal Ron Martinez reported at the April monthly meeting of the Blaine County School District board of trustees that 265 students grades K-5 attended summer school last year. He reported a 90 percent success rate in helping students become more proficient in reading and math.
In order to qualify for summer school, students need to be performing below basic standards in reading or math and need to be referred to the program by teachers.
Summer school starts this year in the Wood River Valley on July 18 and runs until Aug. 12. Classes will be held for grades K-5 from 8 a.m. to noon at Hemingway Elementary School in Ketchum and at Woodside Elementary School in Hailey.
Classes at Carey School are scheduled from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. from July 11 through Aug. 5.
