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 500 and 600 students. Our mascot is the eagle, and we encourage our students to soar with success, just as the eagle does.

When a student is given a coupon, he/she takes the coupon to the office, exchanges the coupon for a small reward and their ticket will be placed into a weekly drawing.

Healthy Ideas From Food Service

“Free Summer Meals Program”

Amazingly, summer is right around the corner.  Making sure our community’s children receive healthy, well-balanced meals while school is out is a high priority for School District 271. Each year we partner with the U.S. Department of Agriculture to provide free meals to children when school is out for the summer. Any child aged 1 through 18 may come and eat for free.  Adults eat for $2.25 at breakfast and only $3.25 at lunch. This summer, meals will be served at Fernan and Ramsey elementary schools, Venture High School and the Hayden Kinder Center. The program starts June 11th and runs thru August 8th. Exact dates and serving times may vary from location to location. For more information on our summer food service program, including serving times and menus, visit the Nutrition Services home page at
