Schools were originally closed for the coronavirus pandemic from March 16 to March 27. Then in late March, Salmon made an announcment that the closure was extended until April 24.
On April 17, there was speculation that Salmon was going to close schools for the rest of the year but the announcement was to extend the closure until May 15.
