Mock Lock-Down: November 21st


Parents/Community Members,


Next Thursday, November 21st at 9:10 a.m., the school district will be running a mock “lock-down” at both the Elementary and the Junior-Senior High School.  We are working in coordination with the Latah County Sheriff’s Department to assist with this event.  Our students and staff will be aware of the “lock-down” beforehand and will be practicing our classroom and school-wide procedures at that time.  If you have questions about the event, please contact your child’s building principal for further information – Mr. John Haire, Elementary Principal (208) 875-1331 and/or Mr. Matt Rehl, Junior-Senior High Principal (208) 875-1231. Thank you for all your support
