• School Closings/Delays:

    In order to comply with the requirements of Governor Little's Rebound Idaho, schools will remain on soft closure through the remainder of the 2019-20 school year.  Instruction will continue to be provided either remotely or online.  Food service will continue to provide meals during this time.  Schools will reopen for all students at the beginning of the 2020-21 school year, with the first day of instruction being September 8, 2020.

*** Schools to remain on soft closure through the end of the 2019-20 school year. ***

While Lakeside is a small community, the restrictions of Governor Little’s Rebound Idaho make it impractical to bring large groups of students into the buildings this school year.  Maintaining social distancing of students six feet apart at all times in classrooms, hallways, lunchrooms, restrooms, playgrounds and school buses is not possible.  Here are the highlights of each stage relevant to public school districts:

  • Stage 1 (May 1-May 15):  Gatherings, both public and private, should be avoided and there must be social distancing of 6 feet.
  • Stage 2 (May 16-May 29):  Gatherings, both public and private, of less than 10 people can occur and there must be social distancing of 6 feet.
  • Stage 3 (May 30 – June 12):  Gatherings, both public and private, of 10-50 people can occur and there must be social distancing of 6 feet.
  • Stage 4 (June 13-June 26):  Gatherings, both public and private, of more than 50 people can take place and there must be social distancing of 6 feet.

This means that Lakeside Schools will not reopen for general operations until this coming fall.  Students will continue with remote learning through the end of this school year, consistent with state restrictions on gatherings. Lunch and breakfast will still be provided during this time.

High school staff will work with small groups of senior students to make certain they are prepared for graduation.  Students receiving special services will still receive instruction consistent with their needs.  Summer school will be provided for identified juniors to make sure they are on track for graduation next year.  All on-campus instruction will be provided in groups of three to four students at a time, on a rotational basis, with mitigation efforts and to comply with state social distancing requirements and CDC recommendations.

State Board Re-entry Criteria State Board Revises Re-Entry Criteria for Public Schools

The Idaho State Board of Education today approved revisions to its re-entry criteria for schools to resume normal operations.

The revised criteria are designed to align with Governor Brad Little’s Idaho’s Rebounds Plan launched last week and is designed to reopen the state over four stages culminating in late June.

“With the update that Governor Little announced last week, we needed to make sure the Board’s re-entry criteria for public schools is aligned with the Idaho Rebounds plan,” Board President Debbie Critchfield said. “Our hope is that we can now focus our energies on what re-opening looks like in the fall and I would go so far as to say that is what our local school districts should be thinking about as well.”
