    SafeSchools Alert





    Staff and student safety continues to be our highest priority. Maintaining effective communication is essential as we continue to provide a safe learning environment. Three years ago, we began using the SafeSchools Alert system to provide students, families, community members and staff with a convenient way to let us know about any concerns that they might have or ask questions. The more information we have, the better able we will be to help and support our students and their families.

    Educational Programs & Operations (EP&O) Levy and a Security, Technology & Infrastructure Capital Projects Levy





    Your support and levy dollars help Bulldog students in so many ways and we are greatly appreciative! Kettle Falls School District will ask voters to consider renewing two replacement levies on February 14th - an Educational Programs & Operations (EP&O) Levy and a Security, Technology & Infrastructure Capital Projects Levy. The current levies, which voters approved in 2019, expire in 2023. Replacement levies will provide funding for our schools through 2027. These are not new taxes. The Kettle Falls School District Board of Directors are very conscious about keeping taxes as low as possible while providing quality educational programs and activities for our students.
    For more information, please see the flyer below and visit our levy page on the website at: https://www.kfschools.org/domain/154

    Respiratory Illnesses Among Children Increasing





    Kettle Falls School District is sharing information about the rise in respiratory illnesses that are occurring among children increasing school absences. Co-circulation of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), influenza viruses, SARS-CoV-2, and others could place stress on schools, childcare facilities, and healthcare systems this fall and winter. This early increase in disease incidence highlights the importance of optimizing respiratory virus prevention and referring for evaluation and treatment when appropriate.

    There are several things you and your family can do to lower your risk of illness and spread of all respiratory viruses:

    • Wash your hands often for at least 20 seconds with soap and warm water, or with hand sanitizer if soap and water is not available.
    • Avoid touching your eyes, mouth, and nose where germs like to enter.
    • Stay home when you are sick (even if it is “just a cold”) and isolate sick household members in separate rooms.
    • Wear a mask in crowded or poorly ventilated settings.
    • Limit the number of close contacts for infants, and individuals with certain chronic conditions.
    • Clean high-touch surfaces frequently with a cleaner that is known to kill these common viruses.


    If your child does end up getting sick, and you think they need to be seen, it is important to choose the right level of care.

    • Call a nurse advice line if your health insurer has one.
    • Call your child’s provider or after-hours service.
    • Check telehealth (virtual medical visit) is an option in your area and on your medical plan.
    • Consider urgent care if a higher level of care is needed, for example if your child has dehydration, pauses or difficulty breathing, poor color, or significantly decreased activity and alertness.
    • If it is a true emergency, go to your nearest emergency room or call 9-1-1.

    • Decrease in appetite
    • Coughing

The best prevention of seasonal flu is to get an annual flu shot.
