Palisade, CO - Due to significant student and staff illness, Palisade High School is closing today, Nov. 14, 2019, at 10:30 a.m., and will remain closed on Friday, November 15. The closure will allow cleaning crews to deep clean the campus and minimize the spread of any illness. We hope to re-open the school on Monday, November 18, 2019.

Students who normally take the bus will be picked up by buses at the school. Students who normally drive can drive home if they are able. 

At this time, we cannot confirm the source or cause of the illness. However, due to the fast-paced spread of the illness, we believe it is likely norovirus. The main symptom reported by ill students is vomiting. Student and staff health and safety is always a priority, and we feel that closing the school for cleaning, and to allow students and staff to rest and not continue to spread the illness, is in the best interest of the entire school staff and student population.
