Winter Weather May Cause School Closures
PFSD

On occasion it is necessary for school to be cancelled because of inclement weather. The district will provide up-to-date information regarding potential closures at this site. Other emergency information can be found under Current Emergencies on the district website. In most cases, the decision to keep school open or to close school will be made by 5:30am.

The district takes very seriously any safety related issues for students, staff, parents and patrons caused by severe weather. The district Transportation Supervisor assesses the current driving conditions prior to 5:30am and is in contact with the Idaho State Police and officials with the City of Post Falls and the Post Falls Highway District to gather information regarding road conditions. The Superintendent and the Transportation Supervisor will review the available road condition information and will drive various roads to see first hand the current driving conditions.

The Superintendent will make the decision whether to conduct school or not.  If the decision is to close school, the local media will be contacted immediately. The district provides the information to KXLY, KVNI, KCDA, KISS, KDRK radio and KREM-2, KXLY-4 AND KHQ-6 television stations.  The district will also utilize the SchoolMessenger notification system for parents with texting capabilities on their cell phones who have opted in to the SchoolMessenger system.

National Merit Finalist

Ashley Dewitt, a senior at Post Falls High School, is a finalist in the 2017 National Merit Scholarship program. She qualified based on her outstanding performance on the PSAT and SAT college entrance examinations.  Students earning the National Merit Scholarship Finalist standing must score in the top one-half of one percent of the two million students who take the PSAT during their junior year.  In addition, they must score equally high on the SAT in their senior year, submit an application with teacher recommendations and demonstrate a commitment to academics and student involvement.

Ashley plans to attend Washington State University in the Honors College, majoring in microbiology and political science with a minor in Spanish. Ashley is state president and international co-vice president for Job’s Daughters, a young women’s service and leadership organization. She is also president for the Post Falls chapter of National Honor Society and participates in Quiz Bowl. Ashley currently holds an impressive 4.27 accumulated grade point average. She has completed multiple dual credit courses through University of Idaho during her sophomore, junior and senior academic years. She will receive a $2500 college scholarship and qualifies for additional National Merit Scholarship monies to be awarded later this spring.  Colleges and Universities compete to get Merit Scholars to attend their programs.
