Principal's Message


    Rick Cline, Principal of Skyway Elementary

    Mr. Rick Cline


    Dear Skyway families,

    We hope you are enjoying the first weeks of summer, and we look forward to seeing you again in the fall.

    We have some big news to share with you today. Principal Jan Beauchamp has decided to retire from Skyway so she can spend more time with her husband and family. Mrs. Beauchamp has been your school leader for four years and had planned to stay on for at least another year, but she has let us know that now feels like the right time to be there for her family full time. We applaud her years of service and dedication to educational excellence, and we wish her and her family all the best.

    Because of this late development, we had to move immediately to appoint a new principal to get ready for the coming school year. Normally we would conduct a thorough search and bring in candidates for interviews, but that hiring process will need to wait. We are happy to announce that Rick Kline, the principal at Borah Elementary School, has agreed to accept the interim principal position at Skyway. His appointment will afford us the opportunity to conduct a thorough principal search at the end of Mr. Kline’s service to the school.

    The Skyway school office is closed for the remainder of the summer.  However, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call the school district main phone number.

    Thank you for your ongoing support of our wonderful Skyway staff, and have a safe and rewarding summer.



    Dr. Kate Orozco
    Director of Elementary Education
    Coeur d’Alene School District


Ideas For Families

    Cell Phones and Children


    More and more really good kids are getting in big trouble with cell phones.
    Teachers are pulling their hair out over students who spend more time text messaging than learning. Some students are even using phones to take inappropriate pictures of test answers… and each other!
    Teen drivers and cell phones create havoc… and death!
    Parents are finding themselves in constant battles with their kids over huge cell phone bills, lost phones, stolen phones, damaged phones, phones being used at the dinner table and during church, phones being taken away at school, etc.
    Here are some suggestions:

    •   Be a good model. Don't use your phone while driving, and show respect for others by turning it off when you should.
    •   Let your child know that they can have a phone only when they can pay for the privilege.
    •   Don't fall into the trap of believing that your kid has to have a phone for safety reasons.
    •   If the phone is lost, stolen, or taken away at school, it's gone. Don't buy them another.
    •   Take it away if it becomes a problem.

    While this advice may seem old-fashioned, parents who follow it raise far more respectful and responsible kids.
