Home-Kila School District # 20

Dear Kila parents and community members,

Sheriff Chuck Curry of the Flathead County Sheriff’s Department just released a statement indicating that the group responsible for the cyber attacks have been identified as being located outside of the United States.

Additionally, Sheriff Curry reports that the threats were not real and were simply a tactic used by the cyber extortionists to facilitate a demand for money.  Sheriff Curry stated, “they want the community to know that all the valley law enforcement agency heads feel there is no threat to the physical safety of our children.”


We are grateful for this news and look forward to school and student activities resuming for all students tomorrow, Tuesday, September 19.  We look forward to seeing everyone!

Thank you,

Jason Christy

Kila Principal

Great Northern Rail Trail Closed in Kila


By Mark Crowley, President, Rails to Trails of Northwest Montana, Inc.

July 20, 2017


Kalispell, MT –The Kila portion of the Great Northern Trail will be closed for improvements beginning Tuesday, July 25th or Wednesday, July 26th.  Rails to Trails of Northwest Montana has contracted with Flathead Valley Community College to elevate the trail in front of Kila School and Kila Post Office.  The work will raise the trail to provide handicapped access to the Post Office and eliminate the occasional spring inundation.  

Work is anticipated to be completed prior to school opening.  Until work is completed, refrain from using the trail in this area and allow our crews to complete their work safely.  If you have questions, contact the President at (406) 250-0819.

This work is done with support from the Flathead Valley Community College, the Flathead County Economic Development Authority and Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks.
