All D91 schools will be closed for Thanksgiving Break from Nov. 25-29. District offices will be closed Nov. 26-29. Transcript requests received during the break will be processed when the office reopens on Dec. 2. We wish all our students, parents, patrons and staff a wonderful Thanksgiving!
A donation to the D91 Education Foundation supports teachers and inspires students. Last year, the Ed Foundation awarded more than $17,000 in college scholarships through partnerships with the Maeck Family Foundation, Odd Fellows and the Rahl Family and gave away more than $80,000 in grants to teachers through partnerships with the Maeck Family Foundation and our friends at FluorIdaho. Give a gift that makes a different by donating today!
