Free & Reduced Lunch

We need your help!  Post Falls School District “Free and Reduced lunch” numbers are historically low right now which may jeopardize student programs, such as Title One Reading. School lunches are a cost effective way to provide students with a nutritious meal during the school day. You may qualify to take advantage of this wonderful service allowing your child to eat for free or at a reduced cost.

You can support our program by filling out the free and reduced lunch application -  forms are available at the school office, are linked here or can be found on the District Food Service page at  www.pfsd.com/administration/2

Trustees Approve Levy Proposals for March 12

Trustees approve levy proposalsOn January 14, the district Board of Trustees unanimously approved a resolution for a $19 million bond to build a new elementary school and improve existing schools. They also unanimously approved a resolution for a two-year replacement supplemental levy worth $4.955 million per year, for a total of $9.91 million.

The bond requires a two-thirds majority to pass, while the levy requires a simple majority. The requests were the result of the Long Range Facility Plan Committee’s work. Per the plan, $12.5 million of the bond funds will pay for a new elementary school in the Foxtail subdivision east of Highway 41. Another $6.5 million will go to updating and enhancing numerous schools.  Bond funds would also be used to purchase land for future school sites. These proposals, if approved March 12, will not increase the district taxes of the average Post Falls taxpayer.

For more information please view our Community Newsletter and Bond Levy Q&A.
