Middle school and high school students will be dismissed at noon on Thursday, Oct. 19, and have no school on Friday, Oct. 20, for parent-teacher conferences. Conferences are a wonderful opportunity for parents to connect with teachers and learn more about what their children are learning at school. Plus, research shows parent involvement is a key factor in student success in school. This year, we're implementing a new format. Eagle Rock, Taylorview and Idaho Falls and Skyline high schools will have open houses for all parents on Thursday from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. On Friday, teachers will have scheduled appointments with parents.

D91 patrons will go to the polls on Tuesday, Nov. 7, to vote on a $110 million dollar bond that will pay for a top-to-bottom renovation of Skyline  and the construction of a new Idaho Falls High School  off E 49th South to replace Idaho Falls High School. The existing IFHS building will be repurposed. It will become home to D91's career-technical programs, the district's administrative offices and it will fill other community needs. There will be no tax rate increase because of growth and rising property values in D91. The district is holding a number of Gallery Walk events over the next two weeks to discuss the plans and answer questions.  HS ReDesign FAQLearn more about HS ReDesignQuestions? This email address is being protected from spambots.

We want to do all we can to ensure students in kindergarten through 3rd grade are reading at or above grade level by the end of 3rd grade. Students who are not meeting reading benchmarks will receive additional instruction at school, but there are lots of things parents can do to help improve their children's reading skills, too.
