Schools may not open

The Cariboo-Chilcotin School District says some schools may not open in September due to the ongoing wildfire threat.

Schools will remain closed if they are located in areas where evacuation orders or alerts are in effect, and school buses will also not operate in areas that are under evacuation orders or alerts, the district says in a news release.

A list of schools and scheduled opening dates will be released by Wednesday, and the board says it will be updated as orders and alerts are revised.

There are 6,000 students in the school district, which stretches from 100 Mile House to Williams Lake.

Emergency Management BC said Sunday that more than 3,000 people around the province remained displaced by fires and almost 10,000 were on evacuation alert.
