Law for weapons at daycare center 

     Signs have been placed around campus at the buildings where concealed firearms are not permitted: the Residence Hall, Boswell Hall, and Christianson Gymnasium. In addition, the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare separately regulates firearms in daycare facilities. An individual may carry a concealed firearm at NIC's Children's Center during drop-off or pick-up of a child. Aside from pick-up and drop-off, staff and parents are not permitted to carry concealed weapons and must keep their firearms in a locked container that is inaccessible to children. Ammunition must be kept in a separate locked container. These rules apply at all times when children are present. For FAQs on the new guns-on-campus law that went into effect July 1, click here.
