    Hey everyone, (class of 2015 to 2019)

    Just a reminder that if you are going to college in Idaho you can apply for scholarships.  The State Board of Education is using a new platform and you will need to create a new account and update your information when you apply.  Link is below.

    If you need your EDUID# please call the counseling office at 208-365-6323 and we will give it to you over the phone.  It is like a social security number for education and we can't email it to you.  This number is different than your old lunch number.
