Supplemental Levy March 9th

On January 11, the Post Falls School District Board of Trustees unanimously approved a resolution for a supplemental levy election to be held on March 9, 2021.  The proposed levy amount will remain at $4.955 million per year for two years for a total of $9.91 million. The current levy expires on June 30, 2021. This proposal, if approved March 9, will not increase school district taxes of the average Post Falls taxpayer.

School to Resume 5 Days A Week on April 5th

At our board meeting on February 8th, we discussed returning to school full time after spring break.  Our reasoning is as follows: 

  • All staff who were interested in receiving the vaccine would have both doses and the time necessary for the vaccine to take maximum effect.
     
  • Schools and families would have time to plan for a full-time return to school.
     
  • The district would have time to see if the variants of COVID require us to change our current mitigation efforts.
     

Once we return five days a week, it is our intention to finish the school year with this schedule barring any unforeseen circumstances.  A reminder late start Mondays have been cancelled for the year.  We are incredibly excited to return to school full time on April 5 th.  Here is a link to the Post Falls School District’s yellow operational plan: PFSD Yellow Operational Plan.pdf 

We appreciate your patience and support this school year.
