(Update: Redmond Proficiency Academy, Powell Butte Charter School closure, Cascade Swim Center delayed opening)
REDMOND, Ore. (KTVZ) — This much snowfall can lead to school and event cancellations and delays, and Sunday’s storm was no exception, as the Redmond School District and the Redmond Proficiency Academy have canceled Monday classes and programs.
The school district cited “weather conditions and the unpredictable amount of time it will take to clear all roadways, parking lots, walkways, and bus turnaround locations needed for safe travel.”
Powell Butte Charter School also will be closed Monday. “The snow load on the old mods (module classrooms) is cause for concern and we will remove it before students return,” Administrator Kevin Milner said, adding, “Stay safe and warm!”
Due to expected poor road conditions, Redmond’s Cascade Swim Center will have a delayed opening, expected to be 10 a.m., according to the Redmond Area Park and Rec District.
Meanwhile, in Wheeler County, Fossil also has canceled school for Monday due to the weather and road conditions, according to Superintendent Jim Smith.
The snowstorm also impacted some weekend activities. The Redmond Community Choir’s concert scheduled for Sunday afternoon at Redmond High School also was canceled.
