Clarkston Families, Today we became aware of a TikTok post that has been shared widely throughout schools across the country. The post refers to a threat to school safety “for every school in the USA, even elementary,” on Friday, December 17. Locally, we have not received any threats credible, actionable, or otherwise. However, we wanted you to know that CSD is aware of the message over TikTok and has made appropriate accommodations to deal with it. We have alerted our educators, teachers, staff and others, including the local police department. The Clarkston Police department will have additional patrols ready and are aware of the situation. Thank you.
Younger students at Highland prepare to return to their classes from recess. There is always a little last minute business to conduct. Nothing too serious, but just the typical, "remember to keep your hands to yourself," and "please do not tell someone else to kiss someone else."
The concert tonight for LMS was absolutely fantastic! Many thanks to our supportive parents and the director, Mrs. Cornia. The music and atmosphere was awesome.
Lincoln Middle School is full of talented and dedicated educators. We also have some fantastic students. This morning the students had a few minutes to walk around the halls and contribute to the penny drive. I even ran into the principal, Mike (Father Christmas) Sperry.
This afternoon I marveled at the spatial awareness and mathematic skills of kindergarteners at our Grantham campus. The task was to create a structure that could keep our gingerbread men safe and dry. Excellent work by our educators and students!
I was in the metal shop this morning observing our new plasma cutting machine. Mr. Frazier and a trained student were working on a project. They needed to cut out a pattern of Lake Coeur D’Alene. Thank you community for passing the capital projects levy two years ago!
Welcome to a music class at Highland Elementary. Today Mrs. Ruddell taught music for us! We even had a mini recital from one of our own students. Thank you Highland parents for sending us such talented musicians!
Our high school jazz band is the best. They performed for the chamber meeting on Wednesday, December 8, at the Events Center in Clarkston. I am so proud of our students and their director. Nice job guys!
Parkway students eating breakfast. It’s so much fun to hang out with our students. They do a great job!

We’re having a great time growing together in the auditorium at Clarkston high school!
Almost time class of 2021!
Tonight at an awards banquet in Richland, the Clarkston School District had the privilege of honoring Brady Woodbury, our Asotin County health administrator with the Community Leadership Award. Joining Brady was his daughter Nani who just completed her junior year at CHS. Brady has been a steady hand in helping the school district navigate Covid and assisted us in following the state's protocols while staying open. With Brady's guidance the Clarkston School District was one of 5% of districts in Washington State that opened the year with students face to face rather than being completely remote. Brady is a dedicated member of our community who, along with his staff deserve recognition and thanks for their leadership during this difficult time. Thank you Brady!
SUMMER FOOD SERVICE PROGRAM FOR CHILDREN AGES 1-18 The Clarkston School District announces the sponsorship of the Summer Food Service Program for Children. Meals will be made available at no charge to children 1-18 years of age. Open sites at Grantham and CHS will be drive-through only sites like last summer due to the current pandemic. Please see specific sites and pick-up times.
This year's extreme heat and dry conditions are causing greater risk of fires. In collaboration with the Clarkston and Asotin County Fire Departments, a decision has been made to not allow fireworks on school property. The Community Spirit Fireworks Show will still be held at 10:00 pm on Adams Field in Clarkston and can be viewed from your home or local neighborhood park. Thank you for your understanding and support.
At their March 29 meeting, the Clarkston School District Board of Directors voted to open all schools for full-time, in-person instruction on April 12, 2021. The following plan will be implemented: read more.
