SVSD Schools Closed on Thursday, February 14

 

All Snoqualmie Valley schools will be closed Thursday, February 14 -- due to the impact of this week’s snow storms on all SVSD schools and difficult road conditions. The District Office will be closed to the public. All school activities and facility rentals remain cancelled.

 

District staff on the Operations and Transportation teams have been working to clear school entrances, fire lanes, bus loops and parking lots, as well as to dig out school buses – but much work remains given the significant amount of snowfall. We have also hired additional contractors to help with snow removal efforts. In addition, there has been some roof damage at Mount Si High School causing leaks inside the old building.

 

We will continue to monitor the storm clean-up progress and make a determination by Thursday at 3 p.m., as to whether SVSD schools will be able to serve students on Friday.

 

The district is also working to develop a plan to make up for the loss of instructional time and will communicate with families, as soon as we have information to share.

 

Also this afternoon, February 13, the district was notified that King County Emergency Management has activated a non-emergency hotline for people dealing with the recent snow event. Call 206-296-3830 for assistance with transport for medical appointments, fuel, food, shelter and evacuation assistance. Visit www.kcemergency.com for more resources available.  For emergencies, please call 911.
