The Lake Pend Oreille School District Office will be CLOSED for the month of July. We will reopen on August 3rd

July 1st Update

As I stated in my last communication, the Idaho state Board of Education will be releasing the re-opening criteria for schools. This document was originally set to be released June 30th but the latest notice I received is a release date around July 8th. LPOSD staff will be working through the month of July planning and preparing for the re-opening of school. This plan will include flexibility to accommodate families with varying educational opportunities, including face-to-face and online education. Details of the plans will be released in the first week of August, at least one month prior to the start of school.

I appreciate the valuable information derived from the June survey. The initial results show that over 75% of the families are wishing to send students back to school face-to-face and the remaining are unsure at this time. I will be seeking updated information from you towards the end of July so our plans can best fit the needs of students, staff, and families.

Take Care, 

Tom Albertson, Superintendent

Has your income decreased due to recent events? If so, it is a great time to complete a new 'Low Income Eligibility' application so that when school resumes, your family already has their new eligibility updated with no meal service delays. The Low Income Eligibility application meal form can be found at this link  and under child nutrition on our district web page down in the center, middle. This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
