What is the snow closure policy?

Information regarding school closures due to inclement weather is sent to local television and radio stations for broadcast.

In the event of a natural disaster or emergency, information will be released from the district office as soon as it becomes available.

If it becomes necessary to close school during the day, normal transportation (i.e., busing, walking, etc.) will be followed.

What is the dress code?

It is the desire and intent of the Twin Falls School District to adopt a dress code to create an environment in our schools that is conducive to learning and free of potential distraction or danger. The Dress for Success code supports workplace norms for appropriate attire. It is our belief that schools are in the business of learning which necessitates discipline by the individual student in all areas such as language, behavior, attendance, and dress.

Students are to observe the following guidelines regarding student attire:

  • Shirts must have a modest neckline (no cleavage) and be long enough to cover the midriff (front and back). No spaghetti straps, tank tops, tube, off-the-shoulder, halter tops, or muscle shirts will be allowed. No backless, strapless, or half tops are to be worn.
  • Clothes must conceal undergarments (boxers, thongs, undergarment straps, etc.) at all times. No see-through, excessively tight, or revealing attire is permitted.
  • Shorts and skirts must be no shorter than mid-thigh in length.
  • Pants must be worn at hip-level or higher (no excessive bagging or sagging).
  • No pajamas, slippers, or sleepwear of any kind is allowed.
  • Hats or head coverings (including sunglasses) of any kind are not allowed.
  • Shoes must be worn at all times.
  • Clothing, accessories, and visible tattoos with words/pictures that allude to any of the following are prohibited:  drug usage, including alcohol and tobacco, controlled substances of any kind, drug paraphernalia, gangs, violence, hate groups, racial separation, sexually explicit, lewd, indecent, or offensive material; or illegal acts.
  • Visible body piercing or magnetic/glued jewelry on face, eyes, arms, hands, tongue, and feet is prohibited. Earrings and nose studs are allowed. Spikes, chains, wallet chains, studs, bolts, dog collars, needles, pins, sharp objects, or other jewelry deemed unsafe is not allowed at school. 
  • Excessive or extreme make-up is not allowed.

There may be exclusions to the dress code policy for religious or health reasons.

Magic Valley High School Exception: small facial piercings that do not distract from the learning process are allowed.

Where can I find information on busing?

Transportation is provided to students who live at least one and one-half miles from school, or for those students who require transportation as part of a specialized program. Due to high traffic in some areas, the district has authorized safety bus routes.

For information on the availability of these routes or other information regarding bussing, contact Western States Busing at 733-8003. Students with a valid Idaho license may drive to the high school, the alternative high school, and the junior high/alternative middle high schools. Please check with school officials for rules regarding this privilege.
