Welcome to Back to School

Dear Salmon River Joint School District Community,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2022-23 school year and officially introduce myself to the community. For those of you who do not know me, I have worked in this district for over 20 years. My husband and I have raised three wonderful daughters in this canyon. They are all graduates of Salmon River and give credit to our schools for their success.

As your new Superintendent, I REFLECT on the past and what it will take for us to continue the progress we have made. I continue to EMBRACE the present values and points of view we bring to build a strong community and to prepare our students. I have listened carefully to the feedback from educators, parents/guardians and community members and hope to BUILD on the future of Salmon River and the gains we have made as a school district. I encourage all of you to feel free to contact me. Open communication is an important aspect to our success.

We aim to strengthen academic achievement for our students and develop long-term fiscal plans that support our schools. Most importantly, we continue to do what is in the best interest of all students; providing the foundation that each student needs in order to realize their full potential and achieve the dreams they have for themselves and for their future.

I am honored, humbled, and excited to work with you all and our incredible team of educators, staff, administrators, parents and community members as we work together to reflect on the past, embrace the present and build on the future to continuously improve Salmon River Joint School District. Welcome back!


Trisha Simonson

Salmon River JSD Superintendent/Riggins Elementary Principal
