Covid19 School Closure

From the Superintendent

In accordance with the Idaho State Board of Education directive, Kamiah Public Schools will operate in “Soft Closure” mode for the remainder of the 2019-2020 School District calendar year. Staff will continue to provide on-line and paper-and-pencil educational material, and the district will continue with breakfast and lunch delivery via school bus routes and in-town routes through May 29th.

With our Board’s decision, the District will now begin the process of making final plans for student promotion, graduation, and preparation for starting the new school year next fall. The District will communicate information as it becomes available through our website and social media links.

Please feel free to contact the District office at 208-935-2991 if you have any questions.
