SANDPOINT, Idaho (Oct. 30, 2003) - CEDU High School and
Middle School students and faculty have evacuated the campus
due to the threat caused by wildfires that are plaguing Southern
Due to the difficulty containing the fire in the Running
Springs area, students and faculty are not able to return
to their campus at this time. In the interim, they will be
housed in a certified camp in the Calabasas, Calif., area
approximately two and a half hours northwest of Running Springs.
The camp, which will be solely occupied by CEDU High School
and Middle School students and faculty, sits on more than
500 acres and includes a swimming pool, volleyball court,
climbing wall, abundant dorm space, and on-site living quarters
for faculty and their families.
"At this camp facility we will be able to deliver the
CEDU program and provide our students with the structure
and normalcy to which they are familiar," explains CEDU
Education California Executive Director Dr. George Condas.
Regular communication has been established with the student's
parents and referring professionals during this time. In
addition, updates are being posted daily on both of the school's
web pages at www.ceduhighschool.com and
CEDU Mountain Schools telephone number (800) 884-2338 has
been routed to a fellow CEDU Education program, Rocky Mountain
Academy, and enrollment inquires are being handled there
The very latest eyewitness tells us that none of the buildings
on campus have been damaged by fire nor have any other structures
in the Running Springs area.
One of our first priorities at this new site is to set-up
appropriate communication arrangements in order to restore
normal communication as soon as possible. In the meantime,
parents are asked to please continue to e-mail your student
letters to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We understand that parents are concerned and want to connect
with their child, but we ask that you do not call unless
there is an emergency as we are focusing our resources on
your children. If there is an emergency, we ask parents to
please use the on-call pager number and not to call faculty
members on their cellular telephones.
Thank you for you continued support, patience and understanding.
