  • Urgent Care Sports Physicals Special August 2020

    Urgent Care Clinic Manager Sean Christensen is excited to announce that a few local Urgent Cares are doing their Sports Physical Special again this year. The cost for a Sports Physical is only $10.00, and Urgent Care will donate the $10.00 back to each school's athletic department.

    This year, due to the current Covid-19 situation, they have decided to only do this special in August, but with extended days. Instead of just doing this special for the first week of the month, they will be doing this Sports Physical Special the entire month of August! This will help students and their families and also our schools.

    No appointments are necessary. Students can walk in anytime during regular clinic hours to receive this special. This will be at all three clinics: Urgent Care of Twin Falls, Urgent Care of Jerome, and Riverview Urgent Care in Burley.

    Clinic hours from August 1st through August 31st are as follows:

    • Twin Falls: Mon-Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., and Sunday 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
    • Burley: Mon-Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., and Sunday 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
    • Jerome: Mon-Friday 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

  • Changes to District Breakfast Program


    Cassia School District will continue to provide breakfast and lunch for any and all students HOWEVER, FREE breakfast will NO LONGER BE OFFERED to ALL students (K-12) at Cassia Schools. The breakfast and lunch programs are provided through federal programs and the ability to offer free meals is based on socioeconomic factors of the community. Improved economic conditions have changed our calculation in the federal programs and eliminated our eligibility.


    The district will continue to offer healthy meals to any and all students during the day, but will return to the former system of collecting applications for free and reduced meals and only provide free or reduced meals to those students who qualify as determined by the application process.


    All families, regardless of economic status, are encouraged to complete the application.



    Changes impact all free breakfasts and lunches at Cassia High School.


    Please see the documents below or contact your school for more information.
