8/4/20Palouse Paving project is being completed this week!Here are some photos of the paving project going on at the Palouse school by Poe Asphalt. With the school closing several weeks back, we were able to get an early start, but progress has been hampered by all the rain the Palouse area has been receiving. Although it is hot this week, they were only able to complete part of the paving and will need to wait for additional drying to take place before finishing the remaining areas. Also pictured, is Avista changing out an older pole across from the school.

Poe Asphalt received the bid and last Friday tore into the project by removing most of the old surfaces in just a couple of days. If you drive (or walk) by the school you will see the work that is taking place. Of course with the rain we are receiving the project will be slowed down substantially. This is a Facility Project that can be realized because of the local support taxpayers provide with approving the Capital Projects levy! Thank you for your continued support Palouse!

Over the past few years (2015 to 2018) the following improvements have been made to the Palouse School buildings and grounds. Many of these projects were possible due to the community approving a Capital Project Levy. The Board is committed to providing our students with a functional and aesthetically pleasing facility conducive to a quality educational experience. We invite you to stop in and see the new look.Resurfaced the old wallpaper and painted the hall wallsRepainted several rooms
