Post Falls schools will be open Wednesday from 8 a.m. to noon to allow students to collect personal belongings before buildings close down until at least April 6.
“Though Post Falls School District is extremely reluctant to cancel school due to the impact on families, we also realize it is important to do our part to stop the spread of the virus,” the district said in a statement late Monday.
Items that may be picked up include medications, band instruments, textbooks and other instructional materials. Pickup is not mandatory, the school said.
The district also said it would issue communications regarding student meals “and other district services which support our students and families.”
The Coeur d’Alene School District has also released details on food distribution and emergency child care.
All districts plan to issue regular updates during the closure, via their websites, social media or direct emails to families.
Here is a district-by-district rundown of plans as of Monday afternoon:
In the Mead School District, food will be distributed once the district sets up hubs throughout where meals can be picked up. Locations of the hubs and pickup times will be announced at a later date.
