Some Evacuation Levels Revised, All Schools Open Wednesday
At 1:45 PM this afternoon, the Two Bulls Fire incident commander confirmed with Bend-La Pine Schools that the evacuation orders have been revised to Level One for the areas around
William E. Miller Elementary, Cascade Middle and Summit High schools. These schools will reopen on Wednesday, June 11. All other District schools will be open as scheduled.
Cascade Middle and Summit High school students are encouraged to check their school websites for information about finals, final projects, and materials return.
Superintendent Ron Wilkinson said Bend-La Pine Schools is fortunate to have one of the longest student-contact school years in Oregon, so the loss of recent school days will not result in an extension of the school year.
“We believe that we have already met the state minimum guidelines for instructional hours this year, so we will not be adding make-up days,” said Wilkinson.
He added, “On behalf of our staff, students and families, I want to thank the hundreds of firefighters and emergency responders who are working hard to contain the Two Bulls Fire – thank you.”
