Due to a technicality the Board Meeting scheduled for tonight (April 13, 2020) is being canceled.
FYI – spread the word!
To show support for our students, coaches, families, and especially for the class of 2020, Salmon River HS will be turning on the lights on the football field as a beacon to show that we are thinking of our students and families in this difficult time. Eventually, we will come back together stronger and better than ever.
We will hit the lights this Friday at 8:20 (20:20) for twenty minutes to honor the senior class
This event will be drive by only! If you wish to participate you may drive up to and around the field but please stay inside your vehicle.

Covid -19 Grab and go breakfast and lunch program
The Salmon River Food Service department has started the free Grab and Go Lunch and Breakfast program for anyone in our community that is between 1 year old to 18 years old. The program had a slow start Wednesday and we will be out Monday through Thursday at the designated bus stop locations and times determined by our district’s transportation dept.
We made some adjustments to the route to better serve and protect our families while picking up the grab and go lunches and breakfast.
Monday through Thursday you will receive lunch for that day and breakfast for the following day.
We are following the protocols set forth by the state of Idaho Child Nutrition Department and USDA regulations. You will receive a meat/meat alternative, grain, fruit, vegetable and milk with lunch and a fruit, grain and milk with breakfast as required.
With the changing economic situation please feel free contact me to fill out a free and reduced lunch application to change your student’s current status. This information is confidential and will not be shared. Please feel free to call with questions or concerns .
If you decide that you want these grab and go lunches at any time please contact Linda Kern, 208-630-6055, cell 208-469-0071, and email: firstname.lastname@example.org .
By contacting me that you want the lunches will insure that we will have enough lunches and breakfast on our delivery routes for all.

Dear Parents and Guardians,
I hope this letter finds you and your loved ones safe and well. We are all experiencing this time of uncertainty differently, often hour by hour. I am aware of the burdens that this is placing on us as individuals, as families, and as a community. I want to ensure all of you that we will work tirelessly to support our students and our families in every way we can. Savage Strong!
Teachers are working hard, examining all the possible ways to continue to provide a quality education for our students. This work will continue and plans will be finalized, to the extent possible, on March 30 and 31. I can assure you that we will support students and families to the best of our abilities throughout this trying ordeal. This includes providing students with health and emotional support, in addition to supporting their learning needs.
There are a lot of moving parts as we plan to meet all the needs of our students and families. Here is what you can expect from us and what the expectations of students are:
Lunches will be provided to students, as well as specifics for how learning materials will be delivered to students and returned to teachers. The specifics of these plans will be finalized and communicated to you before April 1
Much of the learning materials at the secondary level will be delivered via the internet. Teachers are developing methods for this including using Google Classroom. Information will be communicated to you and your student(s) from each individual teacher prior to April 1. Please monitor your emails and have students check Google Classroom beginning Monday and Tuesday. Your student(s) can also expect to be contacted by their advisory teacher on those days as well.
Teachers will also be holding daily office hours, as well as continually monitoring their emails in order to be available for students and families.
Teachers will communicate with students and families when their office hours are as well as how students can expect to access instructions for assignments, etc.
Students without access to the internet can access materials by utilizing district WiFi from parking lots or tables outside buildings. Hardcopies can also be made available as needed. Additionally, the district is looking at providing WiFi boosters and other means of delivery internet to those who need it.
Students who need computers will be able to check those out beginning Monday and Tuesday. We will try and utilize a curbside checkout procedure. This is also the time students who need to collect backpacks, textbooks, and other learning materials will be allowed into the buildings. We will utilize a one or two at a time procedure. I will NOT be at school unless contacted by you for pick-up. Please contact me at email@example.com or at 208-628-4015 to arrange a time to meet me at school.
Per state statute, students are expected to spend an average of four hours per day, or 16 hours per week, working on lessons, including IDLA courses they are enrolled in. They are also expected to complete work assigned to them. That said, students are not expected to “attend” class daily. We want to provide students and families the flexibility needed during this difficult time.
Schools will have a soft closure until April 16th or later. Teachers will be communicating with students and parents about how they plan to distance learn. Please be patient as we are learning how to navigate this new way to teach.
