    The Cascade High School construction and modernization project is on time and budget with a final completion expected in winter of the 2018-19 school year.  This is a phased project with occupation of portions of the new school happening at scheduled times.  This allows students to continue to utilize the school and not be placed in portables during construction. For more information, please visit our CHS Construction pages

     Alpine Lakes Elementary - 1/2018

    Finish work continues on the inside and as weather permits on the outside of Alpine Lakes Elementary.  Scheduled move in will be early summer 2018 with classes (grades 3-5) beginning in August 2018.  We will host an openhouse in early September inviting our community to tour the new facility. 

    Peshastin-Dryden Elementary Update 
    Bid documents were distributed to prospective contractors during the week of Feb 5th.  The two contractors building Alpine Lakes Elementary and Cascade High School have both expressed an interest in bidding on the Peshastin-Dryden Elementary modernization project.  Bids will be opened on February 27th at the district office board room. 

    The Peshastin-Dryden Elementary classrooms will move to Osborn (for the 2018-19 school year) as soon as school is out this summer and Osborn has moved to Alpine Lakes Elementary.  Once PD modernization has been completed (estimated June 2019), the staff and students will move back in the fall of 2019.

    Chelan County Alerts

    Sign up to receive emergency alerts and severe weather warnings that could directly impact you and your family.

    Chelan County is able to send you emergency alerts via text message, email, pager, or voice mail (in extreme cases), based on your preferences. It is important that we collect this contact information because many households no longer utilize traditional land-based telephone lines. 

    The system is intended to be used for emergency alerts, as well as non-emergency incidents that may have significant impacts to residents. Emergency Alerts could be related to specific hazards that require some kind of action be taken such as evacuation, shelter in place, boil water orders, etc. Non-emergency alerts could include significant transportation problems with prolonged impacts or significant ongoing police or fire activity. This list is not meant to be all inclusive, and demonstrates that this system will not be used for routine information. In addition to receiving information on your wireless device, you may also receive notification on your land telephone line (if you have one) depending on the type of incident or event. 

    Please provide your address and preferred method(s) of contact. Adding your address will allow tailoring so you do not receive alerts that do not pertain to your geographical area. 

    These alerts are provided free of charge, however standard text messaging rates and other charges may apply.
