On behalf of the Faculty and Staff of Priest River Lamanna High School, I would like to welcome you to the 2016-2017 school year. By way of introduction, my name is Joseph A. Kren and I am the new high school principal. My family and I are very excited to join the outstanding team of educators we have at Priest River Lamanna High School. My wife Mary is a long time educator as well. Our oldest, Patrick, just began school at North Idaho College studying Diesel Technology and our youngest, Liann, will be a sophomore at Priest River Lamanna this year. We have heard many great things about our school and I look forward to building on the great traditions and successes that have been enjoyed over the years.
At the beginning of every school year, there is always a lot of information to share and forms that need to be filled out. While it can be somewhat tedious to review the material and update information, the process helps us serve the student body more effectively and efficiently. To begin with, the Student Handbook has been updated to reflect those changes in Idaho Code that affect our school. Next, our school day will begin at 7:50 along with corresponding changes to our bell schedule. Please keep in mind, as was introduced last year, campus will be closed to all freshmen. Parents and students should take the time to review the handbook for other changes.
The start of the school year brings so many new beginnings to us all. For myself, I am looking forward to beginning my time here and working alongside our outstanding professional staff. I want to thank each patron, parent and guardian for your continued support and trust in allowing us to work with your students. We recognize, honor, and support the role the family has in the education of our students, and I welcome any ideas for improvement, questions, comments or concerns as we work together to “Strive for Greatness.” Please feel free to contact me via email or phone, JoeKren@sd83.org or 448-1211.
