All Teton Schools to be closed 2/6, 2/7 and 2/8

After reviewing the increasing absenteeism of 20% or higher this week of students and staff and substitutes, due to illness, all schools at Teton School District 401 will be closed Feb. 6-7-8.

This decision has been made in reviewing information with principals, medical professionals, and other school districts in Eastern Idaho that have taken similar steps.

Parents and staff have been alerted by text message, and principals and administrators are taking steps to notify students, parents, staff and those affiliated with any school program or activity that was scheduled over the next three days. There will be no school-sponsored Winter Sports activities (skiing, snowboarding, ice-skating, etc.). For the status of Teton High School sporting events, please contact the individual coach for details.

Superintendent of Schools Monte Woolstenhulme said to all, “This affects our entire community. Please take steps to stay home if you are sick and avoid contact with others.”

All of the schools will be disinfected thoroughly while they are closed.
