How Do I Know If School Is Closed? During the winter months, the district notifies local TV and radio stations regarding school closure or delay. The district's hotline will provide regular updates on the status of school closures, and is a very efficient way, in partnership with the District's Web site, to check the status of closures. The Snow Hotline can be reached at 208.667.0784. The Transportation Director is out on the roads early in the morning to evaluate road conditions and also takes into account current and immediate weather forecasts. The Superintendent makes the final decision to close school - in most cases by 5:30 a.m. The district realizes not everyone will agree with all closures but our staff makes every effort to come to the best decision possible as student and staff safety is of paramount importance.
