    Dr Steven Cook, our new superintendent, to start July 1.

    Announcing our New Superintendent:

    Dr. Steven Cook has been selected as the new Superintendent of Coeur d'Alene Public Schools. Join us at tonight’s board meeting at 5pm [Midtown Center, 1505 N. 5TH Street] as the Trustees take final action. He will start July 1. 

    Dr. Cook has spent 29 years in public education, beginning in Kansas and continuing with the Douglas County district, which serves 68,000 students in 89 schools. He currently oversees professional development, curriculum, personalized learning such as special education and gifted programs, security, evaluation, academic systems, library and media services, and the career and technical education departments. 

    “I am grateful to the Coeur d’Alene School Board for the opportunity to serve,” Cook said. “My wife and I are truly excited to make our home in the district. I was drawn to the district by the strong sense of community here. There’s so much kindness and a commitment among all adults to work together on behalf of students. The teachers, building leaders, and staff are obviously dedicated to providing the very best for their students. There’s such a positive, powerful energy here – it’s inspiring! 

    Cook said he will focus on how to effectively meet the needs of parents and students while providing an innovative educational approach to prepare graduates for college and careers.

    “I believe that all kids are hungry to learn and that all kids can learn, if only we set them up properly for success,” Cook said. “I believe in igniting kids’ natural passion for learning through powerful school experiences and excellent relationships with staff. I believe we must help all kids discover their unseen potentials.”

    Seasonal Health Reminders from our Nursing Staff:

    Our school nurses have compiled information to help promote healthy families this season. Illness guidelines are available to help you decide when to send your child to school and when to keep them home. Remember, anytime you keep your child home sick or receive a diagnosis of an infectious disease from a medical health care provider, please notify your child’s school.



    Please be aware that influenza (flu) is still going around our community. Flu symptoms include fever, chills, muscle aches, cough, congestion, runny nose, headaches, and fatigue.  If you or your child has a fever of 100 degrees or more — stay at home!

    Your child may return to school when the temperature has been lower than 100 degrees, without fever-reducing medication, for 24 hours. If flu-like symptoms are present for more than 24 hours, seek medical care.

    Tips on reducing your risk of catching the flu, including getting a flu shot.

    Research has shown that the transmission of head lice involves direct head-to-head contact. Bed sharing, sleepovers, camp, all pose the most significant risk for transmission.

    Despite the low risk of acquiring head lice at school, it is still important that families understand effective measures of diagnosis and treatment.

    Combing through your child’s hair once a week with a fine tooth comb will help identify issues and may actually prevent infestations from occurring.

    Tips on early detection and treatment.
