The Snoqualmie Valley School District covers more than 400 square miles and approximately 1,000 feet of elevation -- which means our schools can be affected differently by inclement weather, depending on their locations. Storms over the past week, however, had especially high snowfall throughout our region and impacted all our schools. Since some families may still be experiencing challenging road conditions in their neighborhoods, here is an overview of schools around SVSD, and the work that continues to prepare our schools for the safe return of students.
Below are some additional photos taken Wednesday and Thursday this week -- showing the aftermath of recent storms (when the snow finally ceased) and snow removal efforts. We've made significant progress but much more work remains (as of Thursday afternoon, 2/14).
