As if COVID-19 wasn’t stressful enough… we have middle and high school students in our community being targeted and cyberbullied through anonymous accounts. We are working with law enforcement to attempt to shut down the sites.
This is absolutely unacceptable. Inappropriate content has been reported to Instagram. As well, law enforcement has reported the site to Instagram and continues to investigate and work on this. We encourage you to continue to report to Instagram and law enforcement.
We so appreciate the students and parents who are speaking out and speaking up!

Two faculty members at Park High School in Livingston are in isolation at home after testing positive for COVID-19.
The Montana State Health Lab reported the first result to the Park County Health Department on Tuesday evening. The Health Department tracing team, with help from the Livingston School District, has already contacted everyone in the school community who had been in close contact with the individual. They have all received appropriate quarantine instructions and will receive COVID-19 testing in the next 24 hours. Through the contact tracing process, an additional positive test result was found on Wednesday, and contact tracers are working to alert any additional contacts.
There will be no disruption to the rest of the students, faculty and staff at any other schools in the District.
“This is an unfortunate event but not unexpected,” said Dr. Laurel Desnick, Park County Health Officer. “Over the past several months, the Livingston School District has worked with the Park County Health Department for an event such as this. We appreciate the professionalism of the school administration at this difficult moment. It is a credit to their careful planning that the majority of students and staff are safe.”
