Snoqualmie Valley Schools CLOSED Today Due to Power Outages
Snoqualmie Valley Schools are CLOSED today, Thursday, December 10, due to power outages in several school buildings.
This is an update from the previous decision to start schools 2 hours late, with the hope that the power company would be able to bring the school back on line. Based on their latest assessment, however, they could not confirm when power will be restored given widespread outages in the area.
(Snoqualmie School District)
Snoqualmie Valley Schools will open today, Two Hours Late.
No A.M. Preschool, Encompass, AM Kindergarten, or out-of-district transportation. Several schools are still without power on Thursday, December 10. Please check back frequently for updates.
