This is a further update to the one released at noon today.
We have been monitoring the status of the fire over the day and paying close attention to the evacuation orders in the south west of Cardston County and in the Blood Tribe Reserve. Because there are still mandatory evacuation orders in effect near Mountain View, school will be cancelled for Mountain View School on September 13, 2017. The bus transporting students from the Mountain View School boundary to the Cardston High School is also cancelled for that date.
At this time we have not made a decision about cancelling school for Spring Glen Elementary or Spring Glen Junior High Schools. We will be in communication with Cardston County and will be counselling with the Principals of both schools tonight. We will be making a decision with them by 8:00 pm.
Thank you to our staff, parents and community members for following the directions of municipal, Tribal, and emergency personnel. We are so grateful to our emergency responders and volunteers.
Please continue to follow the alerts and instructions regarding the fires at Alberta Emergency Alert.
