NORTHSIDE ELEMENTARY: 2020-2021



Dear Parents, Guardians and Students:


It is with a focus on meeting the educational needs of our children with which I welcome you to the 2020-2021 school year; perhaps the most unique and difficult in educational history. First and foremost, I know that the reopening plan is the most important information families need at this time. The Lake Pend Oreille School District Board reviewed the recommendations from Superintendent Albertson on July 28th, and will be finalizing the reopening details at the August 11, 2020 board meeting. This plan prioritizes:

  • The safety of students and staff
  • Maximizing the instructional time students have with teachers given the community transmission of Covid-19
  • Providing families with educational choices for their students

For families who are currently registered at Northside, please look for a survey which will be sent to your email on August 10th outlining your educational choices. Families who are not currently enrolled may contact the school office between 8-12 on August 5th and 8-2 August 12th and 19th for registration information. The office will be open daily beginning August 24th.


I will continue to provide you with updated information as it becomes available.


With warm regards, 


Ms. Jacki Crossingham

Principal of Northside Elementary.
