El Dorado Schools will be in regular session today. The paved roads in the district are clear of water and safely passable for our buses. However, as a precaution buses will not travel down gravel roads this morning. We ask that if you do live down a gravel road that is safe to drive on, please transport your child to where the pavement begins. UPDATE: Mt. Holly Road and 19th have cleared this morning and buses will be able to pick up on those routes as usual. Use your best judgement for traveling in your area, if roads are still unsafe to pass, please do not drive on them. Students who are unable to get to school due to flooding will be excused. Stay safe!
As the rain continues we know many of you are concerned about school closures. We will be working closely with the El Dorado Police Department to monitor road conditions. Any changes to the school schedule will be communicated on our website and social media pages. If road conditions prevent your student from getting to school safely, their absence will be excused. Everyone use caution and drive safely!
