• Alert:

    The Idaho State Board of Education met and made the recommendation/decision to continue the “soft closure” order for Idaho school districts through the remainder of this school year.  That means, at this time, the rest of the school year for our students will be completed in the comfort of their home.  This is truly an unprecedented event in our lives but our district will continue to provide as many services as we can that will help our students, and you, our parents and guardians, in order to get through this process.  The Board and administration will be in discussion about the various Spring events that usually bring closure to our school years, such as Graduation.  We will be looking at alternative dates, as well as alternative activities, that will allow us the opportunity to celebrate these wonderful, traditional events.

Our Community

School header

The Potlatch School District is lucky to have the support of a great community. Nestled on the Palouse between Moscow and Coeur d' Alene, Potlatch boasts some rich amenities: an active historical society responsible for preserving and promoting Potlatch's history; unequaled scenery; groups that step up when someone is in need; service organizations responsible for the famous Potlatch Community Days celebration, top-notch health care and emergency response services, and the list goes on.

Our students are lucky to be connected to such a vibrant community, with arts and music celebrations, job-shadowing opportunities, and generous individuals who make some activities possible. 

The saying, " It takes a village to raise a child" aptly describes the connection our schools have with our community, and we are proud of the role we play in that.
