The Post Falls Board of Trustees acted during a special meeting this afternoon to extend the “soft” closure to the end of the regular 2019-2020 school year. This action was based on the Idaho State Board of Education revised criteria for schools to reopen. Unfortunately, Kootenai County schools are not eligible to reopen this year because our county has “community spread” of Covid 19. The following link will take you to the State Board press release regarding criteria to open schools. https://boardofed.idaho.gov/resources/board-approves-revised-re-entry-criteria-for-public-schools/
As a result, the district will continue the remote education program. We ask students continue to make progress each week with their remote academic work in preparation for a successful transition to the next grade level. We will be developing plans to provide opportunities for students to pick up any personal belongings and to return any textbooks or chromebooks in their possession during the last week(s) of school. More information will be provided toward the end of May.
Thank you again for your continued support and patience as we navigate these difficult times. We look forward to working with your students at school next fall.
