Butte Fire Impacted Schools Prepare To Re-open
Calaveras County, CA — As Butte Fire recovery efforts begin, local school districts are confirming next week’s return to classes dates for students.
Opening Monday, Sept. 21 are schools in Bret Harte Union High School District, Mark Twain Elementary School District and Vallecito Union School District. The Vallecito district additionally reports that, beginning next Wednesday, due to the sudden resignation of a bus driver and a shortage of substitute drivers, it will have new bus schedules in place for Route #1 (Hazel Fischer Elementary/Avery Middle School) and Route #2 (Michelson Elementary/Avery Middle School); so parents and guardians should make sure their families are aware of them.

While most of the schools in the Calaveras Unified School District, including Mokelumne Hill Elementary, will also be returning to school on Monday, classes at both West Point and Rail Road Flat elementary schools are slated to begin Tuesday.
