    Emergency K-5 child care 

    Emergency K-5 child care will be available starting Wednesday, March 16, at Ramsey Magnet School and will be limited to Coeur d’Alene School District students whose parents or guardians work in healthcare or emergency services. THERE IS NO COST FOR THIS SERVICE. The hours are 6:45 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays.

    REGISTER HERE to enroll a student in our Emergency K-5 Child Care if you work in the following sectors:

    • Kootenai Health, Heritage Health, Northwest Specialty Hospital and other medical settings
    • Panhandle Health District
    • Idaho Department of Health and Welfare Child Support Services
    • Nursing care facilities
    • Hospice
    • Law enforcement
    • Fire and EMTs
    • Other emergency services

    If you qualify for emergency care and already are enrolled in School PLUS, we still need you to register again using this form.


    We are extending our temporary suspension of School PLUS child care until further notice. This is a difficult decision, but we believe it’s in the best interest of our community as we focus our efforts on ensuring the health and safety of our students and staff.

    We will continue to provide emergency K-5 child care at Ramsey Magnet School for students of those who work in healthcare and emergency services. As the coronavirus pandemic continues to expand in our nation and state, it is important for us to participate in the emergency operations of our region, and that means the continued support of child care for hospital employees, emergency responders, and public health staff. Therefore, we are not able at this time to extend that care to children of District employees or to resume School PLUS for the currently enrolled School PLUS families.

    For those who have prepaid for School PLUS, a credit will be applied to your account for all days the program remains closed.

    If you have questions for us, please let us know. You may email us at schoolplus@cdaschools.org


    School PLUS Welcome to the School PLUS program!

    Our School PLUS program provides reliable, quality before and after school child care to children in kindergarten through fifth grade — any child who attends a district elementary school where a School PLUS program is located is eligible to attend. While they are in our care, children will be involved in a rich, stimulating environment and will enjoy an active agenda of developmentally appropriate activities which include arts and crafts, sports, board games, special events, field trips, homework time, quiet low-key and high energy release activities.
