PLUMMER, ID-- The Coeur d’Alene Tribe spent $20,000 dollars to make sure kids in the Plummer-Worley School District have the school supplies they need this year.

KREM 2 went to Lakeside High School for the first day of class.  When kids at Lakeside High School opened their lockers they got nice bags full of just about everything they are going to need for school this year.

Parents know binders, notebooks, and paper can add up. One parent told KREM 2 that with five kids, the backpacks alone would cost $150.

The Coeur d’Alene Tribe says they recognize the big expense and want to make sure dollars aren’t a barrier to learning.

The Tribe dropped off 600 bags full of supplies to kindergarten through 12th grade.

Parents say this makes the firs day of school in the Plummer-Worely District a lot easier.
