School officials in Coeur d'Alene are anticipating an influx of newly enrolled students when school starts again next week. Preliminary numbers show a district-wide spike of at least 200 children over last year's enrollment. "We're looking at a steady increase across all the elementary schools, with stronger peaks at the northern schools," said district spokeswoman Laura Rumpler. The middle schools and high schools will have more students attending as well. There will be 20 more students at Lake City High and 23 more kids at Coeur d'Alene High School this year. "We're seeing new growth that we haven't seen in the last several years," Rumpler said. The school district's enrollment declined in 2010 and 2011/Maureen Dolan, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.
