This is an important safety announcement from Valley Christian Schools regarding the closure of school on Thursday, October 12th, 2017.
Today the air quality at the school deteriorated markedly throughout the day and is forecasted to be worse tomorrow due to the tragic fires north of the school. Please know that student's safety was the primary factor leading to this decision to close the school. We apologize for this late notice, but there would be no way to prevent exposure to unhealthy air conditions if we were to remain open.
We regret any inconvenience this may cause but, again, the student's safety is our number one concern. At this point school is only closed Thursday, but pending the containment of the fires, we ask that you make a short term plan for students should we need to close schools on Friday. At this point it is day by day. We realize that this is homecoming week and will make every effort to resume school as normal pending the air quality. We will contact students, faculty, and families via our comprehensive notification system as soon as a decision regarding Friday is made.
Please continue to hold up our neighbors north of us in prayer as they cope with the devastating fires that have claimed so many lives and structures this week.
