Continue monitoring...schools not anticipated to be impacted...asked specifically about Fairview and Lindsay Thurber and do not anticipate any concerns...there are no evacuation warnings in place for schools...flood projections may be lower than originally forecast (good news)....will update as needed.
 
Noted on City news update and suggest warning to students...  
In high stream flow and flood conditions, the river bank can become extremely unstable. For their personal safety, citizens should stay away from the river until further notice. The City has also closed access to its major trail heads and warns citizens to stay off all of the trails, including those at Three Mile Bend, Bower Ponds and River Bend.  Would assume creeks may also pose some safety risk as well.
