Due to Covid spikes resulting in staff shortages and health and safety concerns, the Caldwell School District has decided to cancel school and close for the next couple of days. Students are already off Monday so this makes for a 5 day stretch.
First staff shortages in service industries took a big hit. Next and most recently the airlines were forced to cancel tons of flights due to airline staff out sick mostly due to the pandemic. Now it is hitting our school system.
Many students and parents around the country and certainly here in the gem state have voiced concerns and disagreements especially this year. Now one High School Senior from Boise is stepping up and speaking out in a bigger way.
