Welcome to West Bonner County School District 83

We had decided early on that we would have a traditional graduation ceremony for our seniors even if it meant going into the summer a little. We felt they deserved it after all their hard work.

The date is set for Saturday, July 11, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. The students will be seated six feet apart in the outdoor athletic stadium seats. Family and friends are invited and are welcome to join them by sitting all around the track infield and the connected practice field to the east of the track. We will have limited seating so guests are encouraged to bring their lawn chairs or blankets to enjoy the ceremony. Social distancing will be practiced and guests are asked to sit in family groups or as individuals, maintaining the required six foot separation.

We have also been approved to have a special graduation ceremony for two of our seniors who have enlisted in the United States Army, and are shipping out before their classmates graduate on July 11th. This ceremony is scheduled for Saturday, June 20, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. Following the guidelines, attendance is strictly limited and all social distancing requirements will be followed.

Due to school closures, West Bonner County School District will have online Kindergarten registration availability for parents who need to register their incoming kindergarten student for the 2020-2021 school year.  Links to registration are available on the school websites, as well as the district website.  Once the on-line registration is completed, a form will be mailed to you with instructions for the next step.   In addition to the online option, each school will have an appointment only option if you wish to come in person to receive and deliver registration paperwork.  You must call the school to set up a time during the week of May 4th through May 8th.  Contact information for the schools is as follows: 

Priest River Elementary  448-1181  www.pre.sd83.org,  Priest Lake Elementary  443-2555 www.ple.sd83.org,  Idaho Hill Elementary  437-4227  www.idh.sd83.org
