  • Statement from Dr. Shank

    There are many questions regarding the start of school. Dr. Shank recently stated that "the priority is to get students back to school". A district reopening committee is meeting July 14 to discuss specifics regarding school operations. Once decisions are made, we will communicate with students and families should there be special considerations or accommodations for returning.
    School priorities are consistent from year to year; support high levels of learning and protect students and staff.

  • 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.

    Please share this information. If you have any questions, please contact Sean Christensen directly at: seanuctf@gmail.com.
