Superintendent's Message

Nine Mile Falls Parents and Community Members:

First, I would like to thank the 350 community members that took the opportunity to give us some feedback on the high school facilities survey sent out last month. The survey will provide additional data that will be shared with our Facilities Advisory Committee at their next meeting on March 14th.

I would also like to thank those parents that reached out to volunteer to be a part of the newly formed Parent Engagement Committee. The Parent Engagement Committee will meet monthly, face-to-face, to provide an opportunity for our parents to engage directly with myself and a board member about topics of interest to them. Our first meeting will be held on Thursday, March 16th in the Lakeside High School Library from 6pm-7:30pm. The topics for this first meeting will be on school safety and updating and answering questions about a possible school bond. Please know that this meeting is open to all parents, however, those that have volunteered to be regular members of this committee will be tasked with helping to guide the monthly topics for each meeting.

As we are hopefully seeing our last snow of this winter season, I would like to let all of our families know that we are beginning kindergarten registration today. If you have a student that will be entering kindergarten in the 2023-2024 school year or know of someone in your neighborhood who will have a student ready to enter kindergarten next school year, please contact Lake Spokane Elementary or Nine Mile Falls Elementary to learn more about the kindergarten registration process. For all new student registrations, including kindergarten, the process is now completely online and can be completed at home or at the school. To access our online registration process, please follow this link:

Finally, we would also like to provide all of our families with a reminder that March 17, 2023 will be a snow make-up day for the weather-related school cancellation earlier this school year. We are also happy to announce that the 2023-2024 school year calendar was adopted by the school board last night. You will find next year’s school calendar at the following link:

As always, thank you for your continued support of all things Nine Mile!
