Due to issues connected to the flooding, “Christmas in Kalama” events that had been planned for today, tomorrow and Sunday are being cancelled for this year. At this time, the first-ever “Festival of Lighted Boats” is still going on, starting at 5 pm Saturday at Marine Park in Kalama.
Kelso and Longview schools are closed again today, as staff members continue to have problems in getting through from the south of us. Kelso and Longview Head Start/EHS/ECEAP sits are also closed today.
Kalama Schools are open on the standard bell schedule, but there are some adjustments. Bus 90 will start its route on Kalama River Road and Old Pacific Highway at 7:55 am, and will continue along Meeker Drive. That bus will NOT travel on the Kalama River Road or Mountain View Road.
