Good morning! The road was cleared at 1:30 am. There is still some mud on the road, and flaggers may be out, but buses should be running as normal today. The power is still out for many families, so please email or text the school office as you are able if your child is going to be absent. Thank you to all who worked throughout the night to clear the slide, and we are so grateful no one was injured!
IMPORTANT: As most of you know, there was a slide at 6-mile this evening. We are so grateful that everyone is safe! Unfortunately, the road is still blocked and we do not know how long it will take to clear the road at this time. If you live on the other side of the slide, we are assuming your child will not be at school on Tuesday (unless you are driving around Cabin Creek Road). This absence will obviously be excused. If you are able to send an email or text to your child's office, that would be great, but we understand if that is not possible. We will confirm bus times Tuesday morning and announce any changes via One Call, on Facebook, and on the radio. Thank you!
