Parents and Friends of CEDU:
I am extremely pleased to share with you that we are on our
way back to the safe and secure CEDU Mountain campus that
we all know and love. This morning, the Inspecting Agent
for the Building and Safety Agency of Emergency Conditions
for San Bernardino County inspected our campus. His report
states, "there are no structural hazards either to the
interior or exterior of any of our structures." In addition,
CEDU Education President and CEO Bob Naples and I walked
the campus and are absolutely confident that it is safe.
We were very pleased to find that evidence of the fire is
nowhere to be seen from the campus or the immediate area.
With the inspector's assessment and our own review, I have
decided to bring our students and faculty back. We will all
be enjoying a hot meal on campus this evening.
We made this announcement to students after they got out
of their Summit and the news was met with exuberance and
support. I am very proud of our students. They faced the
challenge of this disruption with courage and fortitude and
have shown us what we all know is within them, the ability
to be accountable and responsible, the core of what we teach
at CEDU. Without their strength, this could have been a much
Not enough can be said about our staff that tirelessly and
selflessly gave of themselves, while also juggling their
own families. They are all heroes in my book and have a well-deserved
rest coming up.
I greatly appreciate everyone's prayers, concerns, and support.
Our infinite gratitude and thanks cannot be communicated
enough. I will never forget the showering of generosity we
have received. Words alone cannot do justice to express our
deepest appreciation. The firefighters said it best with
the words they left on our chalkboard, "For three days
we came, we fought, and we conquered. You have a beautiful
school." Thanks to the firefighters who risked their
lives, our parents, students, and faculty, and everyone who
rallied together as a team during the last couple of weeks.
We are coming home.
Dr. George Condas
Executive Director of CEDU Mountain Schools
