Subject: Report Cards
In review of the cost of mailing report cards it has come to our attention the cost is approximately $200.00 per year. In today’s economy we need to make every dollar count. With this in mind the decision has been made to no longer send report cards through the mail, we prefer to spend that money on needed supplies for our students.
Please help us to control postage costs by attending the Parent Teacher Conferences each nine weeks. Attending the conferences will give you the opportunity to visit with your student’s teacher and monitor your student’s progress on a timely basis. The importance of knowing what is happening with your student makes it easier on the parent, student, and teacher to work as a team to help your child excel academically. If you cannot attend the conferences, you can make other arrangements to visit with the teachers or to pick up your student’s report cards at the office.
I would also like to remind parents of the PowerSchool Parent Portal that is available on-line http://jsd243.powerschool.com. Here you can look up your child’s progress at school including grades, assignments, absences, tardies, etc. at any time. For your login and password or any questions/concerns please feel free to call the SRHS Office at 630-6025, extension 5101. Thank you for your cooperation and help in controlling costs at our schools.

Oct is a busy month. This is a list of activities to kick off the month of “Idaho College Application Week” ( there are some new ones since the last email) the official week is Oct. 31–Nov 4. The school hall bulletin board will be changed each week, if you would like to add information please do so…
Due to our small size it is hard to get recruiters to come during the designated “College Application Week” so I have invited college recruiters and guest speakers during the month of Oct.
Teachers and community members are invited to share their “college experience” with the senior class during the Career class starting at 11:15 each day. Andrea Hale shared her experiences at LCSC and it was very informative and the students were helped by her good tips. Please call me, Jeri Best 208-630-6025 Ex 5102.
