Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates

This page is dedicated to providing information about the strategies that Teton Science Schools (TSS) has implemented to mitigate the impacts of Coronavirus (COVID-19). As the understanding and available information are changing rapidly, this page will reflect any and all updates to our prevention efforts.

TSS COVID-19 Response

While many of our upcoming residential programs have been cancelled, we are currently operating wildlife tours and our Mountain Academy and Graduate Program students have returned to campuses for hybrid learning. We are also pleased to offer numerous online opportunities for students, educators and schools through our Place Network and Professional Development and Consulting.

Please note all TSS staff and faculty are working remotely. Administrative offices are operating at reduced capacity and responding to emails and voicemails as quickly as possible.

We are continually reviewing and revising our COVID-19 Preparations Plan with current public health recommendations to protect staff and participant safety during any in-person programs. If you would like to be notified of specific program updates, please contact us and we will add you to the appropriate email lists.

If you are in a position to do so, please consider making a donation to TSS during these challenging times. Thank you.
