Congratulations to the Wendell High School Boys Soccer Team. They are going to state! State soccer this year is in Twin Falls.
The state defines elementary as grades K-6 and secondary as grades 7-12; therefore, if a district has an official closure day, it must close either 7-12, K-6, or the whole district closes. Many secondary students are going to attend the game, and when they do, the district loses ADA funding on each of those students which would be approximately $6000 in lost funding. Our elementary students are young and many of their parents need day care if they are not in school, and most of those younger age students would not attend the game.
With all of the above said, the district will close school in grades 7-12 ONLY for Thursday's game. Grades K-6 will have a regular attendance day.
We will have a signup sheet in the office for a fan bus. The cost is $5.00 and you must pay when you sign up. The deadline is lunch on Wednesday.
For those interested in attending the game it will begin with Wendell vs Bonners Ferry at 11:00am at the SunWay Soccer Complex in Twin Falls, ID.
To get to SunWay Soccer Complex you can take Poleline Rd W out to N 2700 E and turn left. (Parking lot will be on your left.)
An alternative way to get there is to follow Falls Ave until it turns right into N 2700 E. (Parking lot will be on your right.)
