August 18: Kindergarten and new to PFSD Elementary Registration 2022-2023
The Post Falls School District has joined the School Messenger emergency notification system. The system allows the district to communicate via SMS text messages to parents regarding important matters such as a school lockdown, school closure (weather or otherwise) or other issues that affect their students.
To receive school notifications you must opt in to school messenger and your students school has to have your current cell number entered in their system.
Please follow the steps below to opt in:
**Send a text message to 67587 with "Y" or "Yes” in the body of the text.
**You will receive a confirmation text reply that you are Registered with School Messenger.
All kindergarten students will return to their home schools in the fall of 2020. Please visit your students home school web page under "Our Schools" tab for kindergarten registration information.
In order to make certain all our students receive appropriate educational supports, Post Falls School District 273 conducts a mid-year residency verification. Residency is defined as where your family sleeps at night. Has your residency changed since September 3, 2019? If yes AND if any of the following statements are true for your family, please contact your school counselor or the Post Falls School District McKinney-Vento Liaison, Dawn Mackesy at 208-773-3541 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about educational services that may be available to your student(s) and family.
For over 20 years, we have housed all kindergarten students at the Frederick Post Kindergarten site. However, it has long been a goal of the school district to return the kindergarten students to their “home” elementary schools where they can enjoy a K-5 experience. Recent voter approval of the March 2019 bond for a new elementary school in the Foxtail subdivision means all kindergarten students will return to their home schools in the fall of 2020. The staff, students and parents at our elementary schools are eager to welcome their kindergarten students.
In the beginning of March, more information will be shared regarding a spring registration and a fall kindergarten open house at each elementary school.
Ready for Kindergarten is a program through United Way. See the information on times and places.
