On behalf of the Faculty and Staff of Priest River Lamanna High School, I would like to welcome you to the 2017-2018 school year. I want to say what an honor it is to be given the chance to continue working with you as we “Strive for Greatness!”  These words contained within our district mission statement are quite powerful and really hit home I reviewed the work that has been completed over the past year.  Everywhere I turned I saw great things happening for the betterment of our students.

At the beginning of every school year, there is always a lot of information to share and forms that need to be filled out. While it can be somewhat tedious to review the material and update information, the process helps us serve the student body more effectively and efficiently. The Student Handbook has been updated to reflect those changes in Idaho Code and district policy that affect our school.  I ask that you please review it carefully with your student. Next, our school day will once again begin at 7:50. Finally we are adjusting how we post grades. To better inform parents and guardians of where their student is performing at, the grades illustrated on report cards in the final semester column are your student’s current year to date grades. Meaning if the semester were to end at this point, the grade illustrated the final semester column would be their final grade. Final semester grades are not an average between two quarters. Final semester grades will then be posted in the transcript at the conclusion of the semester.

The start of the school year brings so many new beginnings to us all. For myself, I am looking forward to continuing my time here and working alongside our outstanding professional staff. I want to thank each patron, parent and guardian for your continued support and trust in allowing us to work with your students.  We recognize, honor, and support the role the family has in the education of our students, and I welcome any ideas for improvement, questions, comments or concerns as we work together to “Strive for Greatness.”

Go Spartans,


Joseph A. Kren, Principal
