Update 2/8/23
According to a press conference today (2/8/23), the evacuation zones have been lifted and the road closures have been opened. All students should be able to be transported to and from school tomorrow, February 9, 2023 as normal. 
 
For families who chose to evacuate, absences for the remainder of the week will be considered excused. Absent students can work from Schoology, should they be able to. Families of K-4 students can either contact their child’s teacher for work or can get caught up upon their return to school. Should your family be impacted and you need assistance, please reach out to your child’s school.
