All Bend-La Pine and Redmond School District Schools Closed Friday, Jan. 13

UPDATE FROM REDMOND SCHOOL DISTRICT

Update January 12, 2017 1:22 p.m.

Out of caution for student and staff safety, all Redmond Schools are closing early today, January 12, 2017 and canceling Friday, January 13, 2017. After ongoing review of facilities, and increase incidents of roof leaks throughout the day, it has been determined that it’s best to remove staff and students from the buildings. Although we believe students are not in immediate danger, we are choosing to err on the side of caution and safety. We anticipate school resuming on Tuesday, 1/17/2017, as Monday is a national holiday.

Elementary Parents: Please come and pick up your students from school as soon as possible. If your student has not been picked up by the end of the day, they will be sent home according to their normal transportation plan whether that is walking, pick up, or by bus. Busses will be running on a normal schedule.

Middle and High School Parents: Please come and pick up your students from school as soon as possible. If your student has not been picked up by the end of the day, please know that buses will be running on a regular schedule. If your student is a walker or driver, they will be released at this time.
