BEND, OR -- Most Bend-La Pine and Redmond schools return to some sense of normalcy Wednesday after closures – first from the massive amount of snow from several storms, then from concerns over the stability of roofs at district facilities under the weight of all that snow.


Tuesday evening, Bend-La Pine Schools officials announced 30 facilities would re-open Wednesday, after snow removal efforts and engineering assessments. Those schools will run on-time, with no early release. Five elementary schools remain closed: Elk Meadow, Lava Ridge, Pine Ridge, Ponderosa and W.E. Miller. Three middle schools are also closed for another day: Pacific Crest, Pilot Butte and REALMS.


In the Redmond School District, Terrebonne and Tumalo Community Schools are closed for what the Superintendent says will hopefully be just one more day, to allow crews to complete snow removal in areas that are said to be difficult to access. All other schools in the Redmond district are on a typical "School Improvement Wednesday" schedule.
