Local school trustees vote to continue 'soft closure' through end of year

Trustees of Joint School District #171 in a split vote mirrored the earlier decision of the Idaho State Board of Education and approved a 'soft closure' of all the schools in the district through the end of the 2019-20 academic year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Trustee Greg Billups, Zone 2, voted 'nay'. The remainder of the trustees approved the calendar change.

The school district will continue to provide the current services food service and learning materials. They will continue to adjust as needed to help students, staff and families as much as they can, according to Dr. Michael C. Garrett, Superintendent.

Those with questions or concerns should contact the district.
