CdA, PF, Lakeland Shut Schools Friday

  • Update: Lakeland School District financial officer Tom Taggart just told Scott Maben that schools in the Rathdrum area district have been canceled Friday, too.

All this week rumors of a planned school shooting swirled around schools in Coeur d’Alene and Post Falls. No one has been able to substantiate a threat, but officials today decided to cancel school anyway on Friday in North Idaho’s largest two districts. Superintendents in both districts made the decision on the advise of local law enforcement agencies, which have assisted school officials in trying to track down the source of the persistent rumors. The Coeur d’Alene School District made the decision first to call off K-12 classes for the final day before Christmas break, followed by the Post Falls School District. The closure includes before-school and after-school activities. More here.

Question: Do you agree with this move by the Coeur d'Alene School District?
