Emergency Information


We are working to increase communication with our parents/guardians.  We have created a separate phone line dedicated to providing updated information to our parents/guardians. If you receive a message from the district or school, and are unable to retrieve the voicemail for any reason, call back  208-712-8144 to listen to the notification.  Please save the number into your phone so it is easy accessible and recognizable on your caller ID.  


We will be utilizing our Power Announcement system to send parents information during snow closures, emergency situations, and other updates on a regular basis.  In order for the District to contact you, we must have accurate contact information for you and your student.  If you have changed your email address, phone number, or mailing address recently, please contact your schools as soon as possible with updated information so that we may send you important notices quickly.  Power Announcement has the ability to call your phone, send you text messages, and to email you.  Call the district at 687-0431 if you have any questions.


Thank you for your support, 

Dr. Meyer, Superintendent
