Schools under Evaucation Order or Alert to Remain Closed in District No. 27

The Board of Education for School District 27 confirmed Friday that schools will remain closed to students if the school is under evacuation order or alert.

School buses will not operate in, or through areas that are under evacuation order or alert.

Parents who choose to transport their children through evacuation alert areas to attend their school will be required to have an approved safety plan in place for each child prior to them being allowed to attend classes.

A list of schools and opening dates will be available this Wednesday on the School District 27 website. The list will be updated as evacuation orders and alerts are revised.

At a special closed meeting of the Board of Education on Wednesday, the Board, in light of the summer wildfires that have plagued the Cariboo-Chilcotin, discussed the safe opening of schools for students in September.

“The Board of Education fully recognizes that this summer has been extremely difficult on our families and communities. The First Responders, Emergency Service Teams, and volunteers are commended for their work and level of professionalism throughout this most difficult time,” says Tanya Guenther.

“We are proud of the School District staff that, through their individual roles, have assisted, and in many cases, gone above and beyond, during this unique situation.”
