• 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.



Close alert

We at the City of Potlatch Afterschool Program have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation in our surrounding area and have been meeting regularly to discuss this complex issue. With the rapidly changing situation over the past few days, we have decided to err on the side of caution and close the Afterschool Program starting Wednesday, March 18, 2020. The Program will remain closed through Spring Break.

At this time, our plan is to reopen the Program on Monday, April 6, with the return to school after Spring Break. However, we will continue to monitor the situation and will let you know if that plan changes.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but your child's safety is of the utmost importance to us.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me at 208-892-4032 (via text or voice) or melissasmith@potlatch.com

Thank you for entrusting your child's well-being to us each day at the Program.


Melissa Smith
Program Director
