POCATELLO — All schools in the Pocatello-Chubbuck School District will be closed Friday.
According to a robocall received by parents, all PCSD25 classes will be canceled due to staff shortages.
On Tuesday, the district reports having nearly 100 staff absences, according to a letter sent to parents. Since then, that number has grown and left schools unable to manage the number of vacancies.
In a separate letter, the district informed parents that a total of 29 staff embers and 81 students tested positive for COVID-19 as of Jan. 14. Only four schools within the district reported as having zero active cases as of Jan. 14.
The Sugar-Salem School District also canceled all Friday classes with a letter late Thursday afternoon.
As with the case in Pocatello and Chubbuck, the Sugar-Salem School District is struggling with staff shortages.
