Through a unique partnership between D91 and College of Eastern Idaho, D91 students can earn a year of college GEM credits while still in high school. GEM credits are typically those classes every student has to take such as Communications 101 and are easily transferable to any Idaho college or university. Applications are due Feb. 22.

cold weather & snowflake

In the winter, it's not unusual for temperatures in eastern Idaho to dip well below zero, and reach as low as 20 below with the wind chill factor. Occasionally, these cold temperatures and other severe weather conditions make it necessary to close schools for the safety of our students. The Superintendent makes the decision to close school by 6:30 a.m. based on the best information available. The Superintendent considers early morning temperatures, the day’s forecasted temperatures, wind chill and other factors. Parents always have the right to decide what is best for their family and can keep their children home if they believe the weather is too severe for them to attend school.
