FRSD Students and Families:
With the 4th of July just around the corner, we wanted to inform you of some extra precautions we are taking this year.
On June 16th, the Oregon Department of Forestry’s Western Lane District declared the start of the fire season. This includes the banning of fireworks in the district.
Two FRSD campuses fall in within this ban, Elmira High School and Elmira Elementary. While our other two campuses do NOT fall within the district, we are asking everyone to refrain from coming to ANY of our FRSD campuses to light fireworks.
The combination of high temperatures and extremely dry conditions has us very worried that the opportunity for a fireworks “fire accident” is extremely high. We apologize for any inconvenience as a result of these campus closures for this activity.
