Greetings, and welcome to St. Maries Joint School District No. 41 where we are “Committed to Quality Education.”
In case of an emergency school closure due to weather, power, or water failure, the announcement will come from the District Office to area radio and television stations via the educational Service District 101 Alert System for Media Notification Services. Parents should listen to Spokane television and radio stations or visit the District Web site if they have reason to suspect any school closure. School closures will also be announced locally on KOFE Radio.
St. Maries School District No. 41 Mission Statement and Strategic Plan
St. Maries Joint School District No. 41 is dedicated to providing an educational culture that will continually assess the knowledge, changing needs, and challenges of our students and adapt our practices to prepare them to become successful citizens.
St. Maries Joint School District No. 41 Strategic Goals for Improvement:
I. Student achievement will be improved in all areas.
II. Promote staff development.
III. Emphasize communication and involvement with staff and the community.
IV. Maximize and efficiently use funding sources.
V. Provide a safe, healthy, and inviting learning environment
St. Maries Joint School District No. 41 invites our parents and patrons to review the DRAFT calendars for the upcoming 2016-2017, and the 2017-2018 school years.
The calendar committee consisting of teachers and administrators from all four schools has met multiple times. It was proposed to the St. Maries School District No. 41 Board of Trustees on March 14, 2016 to implement collaboration/professional learning community opportunities into our district calendar. In order to do this, the committee has proposed a late start two times per month. Details are outlined in the attached slide presentation.
Along with this we are seeking input on how we celebrate Veteran’s Day and Martin Luther King Day. We are currently in school on both days. Would you prefer school be in session or not? If we are not in session, the days would need to be made up at another time.
The District would greatly appreciate any and all comments from parents and patrons on this issue. Please submit your comments to Joseph A. Kren, superintendent via email: email@example.com or by phone 245-2579. Thank you for your continued support.
