The University of Idaho allows students to attend classes remotely, in person, during the investigation


MOSCOW, Idaho — University of Idaho President C. Scott Green spoke at a news conference with Moscow police on Sunday to announce the school’s response plan as the investigation into the murder of four students continues.

“The University of Idaho’s primary focus right now is supporting our students and working to meet their needs,” Green said.

Green asked faculty to plan for some students to attend classes remotely as well as in person since the suspect has not yet been arrested.

“The police continue to inform us that this was a targeted attack, but we understand that this is not enough for some of our students who will want to complete the rest of their semester remotely until the person who committed the crime is in custody. ” Green said.

The University of Idaho will discuss solutions early in the week so families can plan their response over Thanksgiving break.

Green also said the university has increased security patrols on campus, and the school has benefited from an increased Idaho State Police presence.

“They have been a very visible force, and they will continue their dedicated presence on our campus for the foreseeable future,” Green said.

The U of I will also continue its safe walk 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

“All residence halls are locked 24 hours a day and are only available to students living in the building,” Green said. “We make safety our top priority. We are also planning for the very real possibility that some students will be uncomfortable returning to campus. We will do our best to meet the needs of all students.”
