BEND, OR -- Local school districts continue to assess and repair schools, after record snowfall and in anticipation of possible flooding, this week.
Sisters Schools officials reopened facilities late Friday, declaring all are safe. Bend-La Pine Superintendent Shay Mikalson said yesterday he is less optimistic all schools will reopen Tuesday following weekend clean-up efforts at three-dozen sites. Engineers found structural damage at R.E. Jewell Elementary and possible problems at Bear Creek Elementary and Westside Village Magnet School. Bend-La Pine Schools updates are available on the district's website.
Both Mikalson and Redmond Superintendent Mike McIntosh expect to announce at 5 p.m. Monday whether all or some schools will resume tomorrow. Click HERE
