We have recently received word from PP&L that power may not be restored until 12:30 p.m. today in the Shady Cove and Trail area. Due to the lack of heat, water and sanitation services at Shady Cove School and Elk Trail School we have decided to cancel school at those two buildings at 10:00 a.m. today. School staff will be contacting all parents to let them know and verify that students can be released.
For students who are regular bus riders and whose parents have been notified buses will depart from Elk Trail at 10:00 a.m. and from Shady Cove at 10:10 a.m. Walking students will be released only after parent contact has been made.
In the likely event that parent contact cannot be made, students will not be released. Staff will be available at both buildings for supervision of students. Our regular afternoon bus routes will be running.
