Soar With the Eagles

Welcome to Skyway Elementary School

Welcome to Skyway Elementary School!  Our school opened in 2000 in the rapidly growing Coeur d'Alene Place neighborhood, and quickly gained recognition for our character education program and student achievement. Our student population varies between 600 and 750 students. Our mascot is the eagle, and we encourage our students to soar with success, just as the eagle does.

Thanksgiving School Schedule


 School will be held on regular Late Start hours on Monday. Monday evening is parent-teacher conferences, then school is closed all day Tuesday so that teachers can continue with conferences. Wednesday through Friday is the Thanksgiving holiday. The Skyway staff would like to wish all of our families a peaceful and happy Thanksgiving.

Jingle Books

Please bring new or gently used books from November 10-December 11th.

There will be JINGLE BOOK boxes in the Skyway lobby OR you can bring them to Room 505 (Miss Meyer) before or after school.

When the decision to close school due to weather is made, the district will communicate these closures by notifying TV/Radio stations. News stations KREM 2, KXLY 4, KHQ 6 and radio stations KVNI 1080 and K102 will broadcast/stream school closures. You can also call 664-0784 (School Closure Hotline) or visit the district website at Please do not call the school or the news stations to see if there is school.

Community Assistance for Families

One of the things that makes the Coeur d'Alene area such a great place to raise a family is the the support networks we have. Skyway understands that many families can use a hand at times, so we'd like to share this list of local resources available for everything from medical care, grief support, emergency shelters to substance abuse recovery. Many of these are not associated with the school district in any way, but the list may be helpful to someone who is looking for a helping hand.
