This year we are focusing on traits that we are calling “Savage Pride”
- Be Kind/Respectful
- Be Responsible
- Be Safe
We are also focusing on increasing student attendance including absences and tardies.
At the Riggins Elementary monthly “Savage Pride” assembly the “Elf on the Shelf” presented candy canes and a “Savage Pride” pencil to all of the students who met the school’s attendance goal for the month. I would also, like to thank the PTO for providing lunch for each of the Student of the Month recipients.
Congratulations to Mrs. Medley’s 2nd grade! They have 96.557% attendance for the year!
Students have to be present and engaged in order to learn.
In 2017-18, the average student attendance rate was
elementary average 82.36%,
high school/middle school average 88.8%
district average 85.58%
We want children to succeed! So, our goal this year is to increase attendance to 90%.
We are almost half way through the school year and on our way to achieving that goal!
The elementary average is currently at 94.993%.
The high school/middle school is at 91.056%.

Re: Statewide Bomb Threat
To Parents/Guardians and Patrons,
In reference to the news reports concerning a “Statewide” bomb threat that was supposedly sent to all school districts and airports in the State. The first time I heard about this was last night when I read it in the news. The District, at no time, had received a threat of any kind. If we had, I assure you that, we would have taken appropriate action which would have included contacting authorities and communicating to the situation to parents and guardians.
The district leadership team invites you to join us! We welcome your voice and input during on monthly/bi-monthly meetings. The team meets to discuss the direction and goals for improving student learning in our district. The next meeting is September 21 at 8:00am in Mrs. Barany’s room. If you have questions, please contact Trish Simonson email@example.com 630-6055
