    The Board of Trustees and District Administration met Wednesday, March 18th to discuss possible closure to our schools, due to the continuous threat of the COVID-19 virus.  In order to ensure the safety and health of our students and staff, the Board decided that the closing of the school district, at this time, was in the best interest of our students and community.  School closure will begin on Friday, March 20th and will be in effect through Monday, April 20th.

We at the City of Potlatch Afterschool Program have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation in our surrounding area and have been meeting regularly to discuss this complex issue. With the rapidly changing situation over the past few days, we have decided to err on the side of caution and close the Afterschool Program starting Wednesday, March 18, 2020. The Program will remain closed through Spring Break.

At this time, our plan is to reopen the Program on Monday, April 6, with the return to school after Spring Break. However, we will continue to monitor the situation and will let you know if that plan changes.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but your child's safety is of the utmost importance to us.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me at 208-892-4032 (via text or voice) or melissasmith@potlatch.com

Thank you for entrusting your child's well-being to us each day at the Program.


Melissa Smith
Program Director
