Hayfork elementary and high school schools started Monday. Although the fire hasn’t been put out yet, fire professionals stated that school sites are one of the safest places to be during an emergency evacuation. With the large, well-watered grassy areas the HES and HHS have, students will be able to shelter in place or, if needed, be transported to the Fairgrounds where they can be picked up by their parents. Students practiced the Emergency Wildfire Evacuation Drill on Monday, so they will be prepared in case of an evacuation.
The Hayfork Library is now open for regular hours! You can stop by on Mondays and Wednesdays from 1 to 5 p.m. or Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Weaverville is going to have a blood drive on the 21st of this month. It will be held in the Cultural Hall at 71 Mormon Lane from 2 to 6 p.m. Bring your photo ID and wear a mask. Walk-ins are welcome, but appointments are encouraged for social distancing. You can make one at donors.vitalant.org and use the Blood Drive code SMFM176 or call 530-243-0160.
The Fairgrounds are closed to the public until Fire Camp leaves. This includes the showers, laundry and exhibits. If you have any exhibits still at the fair, you will be able to pick them up after Fire Camp leaves.
