Support school bond issue


Please join us in voting yes on the upcoming School District 271 facilities bond.

We are longtime residents of this community and have seen hundreds of students successfully pass through Borah, Bryan, Winton, Sorensen and Canfield schools. These buildings have served their purpose over the past 50-plus years, but it is time to renovate them to meet the needs of 21st century technology, and to keep our students safe and healthy. We do not have any of our own children in the system anymore, but we do have grandkids, and they deserve a safe and healthy learning environment.

We are proud members of the Coeur d’Alene community and recognize that the foundation of a great community is great schools. As we all know, interest rates are at an all-time low and many folks in our community with construction backgrounds are looking for work, so the cost of construction will never be better.

With KTEC and Lake City coming off the tax roll, what a great time to stimulate our local economy and make much-needed facility improvements to our high-achieving district without raising our taxes.
