Greetings Warrior Community!

What a wild first half of the year it has been. Everyday I come to work and the only thing I can expect is the unexpected. The Covid pandemic is the obvious culprit for much of the drama. The biggest difficulty through all of this is how quickly things change with regards to what we can, and cannot do. Regardless of our challenges though, we have been able to stay open, 5 full days a week. This is a testament to our dedicated, hard working, and caring staff that is willing to put our students first. I cannot say enough good things about them. They are awesome. 

The Kootenai School District will be running an operational levy this year on March 9. The levy provides funds enabling the district to provide many services they would not otherwise be able to such as having a school resource officer on site everyday, offer an all day, every day kindergarten, and regular building supports for day-to-day operations. This year we want to include new playground equipment and a new welding program into the levy. We will be mailing you a brochure this month with more details. I will also provide some levy informational meetings to the public to help answer questions you may have about the levy or how it affects the school budget. Please be sure to vote on March 9.

The school board and myself strive to be transparent in our processes and decision making. If you ever have any questions, concerns, or comments, please feel free to contact me at the school, or come to one of the coffee with the superintendent meetings. We meet at the Tin Cup in Harrison at 9:00am the first Wednesday of every month, and at Valley Mart in Medimont at 8:00am the third Wednesday. Stop by and let me buy you a cup of coffee. Thank you for all of your support. We could not do it without you!
