Dear Kootenai Patrons,

I would like to apologize for the lack of communication with regards to our last School Board meeting on December 14. We are complying with the Governor's order of no gatherings of 10 people or more and as such need to restrict public access during meetings to on-line only. I personally take responsibility for not making this more clear to the public, and was in no way trying to hide anything or cover anything up. I am sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you or your family. I also realize that there was an agenda item of high importance to many of you. Because of my lack of communication, some of you were unable to address the board on this topic.

To correct this mistake, there will be a special board meeting on December 18, at 7:00 pm. The only agenda item will be discussion/action of winter sports at Kootenai School District. Due to the Governor's order of gathering restrictions, please email me your comments that you would like to have addressed to the board. My email is The deadline for comments is 6:00pm, December 18.


Wade Pilloud
