A Message from the Principal:

March 29, 2024

Greetings Kootenai Families! 

As we jump into spring break, I hope you and your family will have time to disconnect from work and technology, be present, and enjoy quality time together!

I am thrilled to dive into April and have kids outside each morning, participating in Jogging Club! This will start at 7:30am on Monday, April 8th. This is a great way for students to get out extra energy before school and earn miles for the end-of-year jogging prizes!

Also, please join me later this month at the Student Safety Summit, which will take place on April 17th, at 5:30 pm at Sandpoint HS. Dinner and childcare will be provided! I highly encourage all families to attend! In addition, this month we continue REGISTRATION for the upcoming school year! This is INCREDIBLY important as our class sizes have grown. Please save your child’s spot for next year by completing online registration (see details below). 

Lastly, 3rd through 6th grade will start state testing on Tuesday, April 23rd. This will be a great time for students to show what they’ve learned so far this school year. We will keep you posted on all dates and times and we thank you in advance for supporting daily school attendance! As always, please check out our social media pages (Facebook & Instagram) for updates, pictures, and additional information! 

In Gratitude, 

Summer Tigert, Principal

All schools in Lake Pend Oreille School District utilize See, Tell, Now! -- a Student Threat Reporting System. The anonymous tip line is staffed by trained technicians who receive and evaluate tips 24/7. The tips are screened for accuracy and severity, then assigned to school points of contact or law enforcement, if applicable.
