We have had a number of questions in regards to whether or not your student is being offered online learning services. Online learning portals and instructional packets are being used at the Secondary levels. Instructional packets, only, are used at the Elementary Levels.

Students at Priest Lake Elementary are keeping data notebooks this year. Each student is tracking their attendance, they are setting goals and tracking progress, and building an understanding of how to begin with the end in mind. 

It is important for students to be at school each day so that they build their knowledge and skills and become part of the school community. Thank you for assisting your student in getting to school each day ready to learn!


Success for all with the
Understanding that
Community, parents, students, and educators will
Collaborate and
Empower the
Student to make positive lifelong choices.
Strive for greatness!
