Columbus Day

Columbus Day will be celebrated Monday. Government offices including the post office will be closed as well as many other businesses. School will remain in session.

Fall break

Students at Little Snake River Valley Schools will not be attending classes on Oct. 15 as this is their fall break. This is good news for those students who elk hunt as this is opening day.
