Salmon River Jr/Sr High School was nominated and selected as the Best School in Idaho County! Thank you to all who voted.
Copied from the IDLA Newsletter;
In 2010, the Savage Academy opened within the halls of Salmon River High School. At the time, the Academy was one of few digital classrooms throughout the state that was dedicated to offering students online courses during their day. Since that time, many schools have since incorporated IDLA within their regular schedule but Jan Barany was the individual selected to pioneer this to enhance students’ academic options. Jan was a perfect fit!
As a lifelong learner and valued member of the school community, she is a mentor to students in ways that personally connect her with students. Whether this is working trigonometry proofs on the board with groups of students or following students in their extracurricular activities, Jan has connected with students in a way that provides a holistic support for individuals.
This support, and the active role she plays in students’ academics, is reflected in Salmon River’s overall success in IDLA classes. Since their first enrollment, Jan has assisted students in this 1A school in almost 700 IDLA classes. Of note, her dedication, oversight and assistance provided to students has resulted in a 97% pass rate for all her students enrolled since 2010! As retirement is nearing this year for her, Jan’s dedication to all students will be missed but the efforts she has placed in students will be carried on through their future successes.

This year we are focusing on traits that we are calling “Savage Pride”
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.
Attn parents and students:
Salmon River High School will be hosting a College Workshop & Financial Aid (FAFSA) Night for juniors and seniors. College representatives will be there to answer questions. There will be a free potato bar beginning at 6:30 on November 6th in Mr. Ratcliff’s room.
