Butte Central, Catholic Schools close until at least May 4


All Montana Catholic schools, including Butte Central schools, will remain closed with remote online learning until at least May 4, three weeks later than public schools, according to a press release from Dr. Tim Uhl, superintendent of Montana Catholic Schools.

“This plan provides our school communities with a modicum of stability amid growing concern about the spread of the Coronavirus and the impact that COVID-19 could have on our great state and our school communities,” Uhl wrote in the release Tuesday afternoon.

On Tuesday, Montana Gov. Steve Bullock extended the closure of all Montana public schools to April 10, but he hinted it could be longer if the novel coronavirus continues to spread.

Montana had 53 reported cases of COVID-19 in 12 counties as of Wednesday morning.
