NAMPA, Idaho — Three schools in the Nampa School District will move to online-only instruction beginning Thursday, Nov. 19. The district made the decision after staff members in the schools tested positive for COVID-19.
Lone Star Middle School, Central Elementary and Snake River Elementary will transition students to a virtual learning method beginning Thursday. They will remain in virtual learning until Nov. 30.
Specifics regarding how many faculty members in each school tested positive for COVID-19 are not available.
