Kumsheen ShchEma-meet School update: First day of school may change due to evacuation alert

August 28, 2023

School District No. 74 shared the following today:

Dear families of Kumsheen ShchEma-meet School,

We hope that each of you are safe and managing the best as possible under the current threats of wildfire.

We are hoping that we will be able to open our doors and welcome students to school on September 5. However, the school is currently under an Evacuation Alert and schools in Gold Trail do not open when under an alert (Operational Procedure No. 4.120 Alert Warnings). While we hope things improve this week so we will be able to open, we are making plans on how we can start this school year positively if we are unable to open on September 5. We will provide an update by the end of this week.

Teresa Downs, Superintendent of Schools
