TSD 401 expectations remain as we celebrate EIPH lowering the risk level for Teton County

Teton School District 401 has confirmed that Eastern Idaho Public Health has moved Teton County to the green level, or low risk for community transmission, from the moderate (yellow) level.

This is a huge victory! It means that the number of active cases has fallen below the threshold of less than 10 per 10,000 population for the last seven consecutive days.

Simply put — our precautions and protocols in our schools are working – but we cannot let our guard down. Now is not the time to let up. We want our students and staff to stay safe and healthy.

Even in the green stage, the school district will continue its original expectations, as called for in our reopening plan.

All students and staff are *still* expected to:

  1. Stay home if you are sick or have any symptoms of illness.
  2. Wear a mask or face covering (required)
    1. inside buildings
    2. on buses
    3. and outside in situations where 6 ft distancing cannot be achieved
  3. Social distance with 6 ft separation as much as possible. We recognize this is very challenging in schools and on school buses, so it is critical that everyone wear their masks.
  4. Wash your hands frequently and use hand sanitizer when available.

While we have these expectations within our buildings, it’s up to all of us to keep the risk of transmission low. Parents, please do your part. It is only with community cooperation and families working with the school district that we will be able to continue in-person learning.

Please know that we will continue to make adjustments as needed and will communicate them promptly. STAY WELL, TETON!
