  • All Student West Fork Hike--DRIVERS NEEDED: This Friday, April 27th the UE class will hike West Fork. We will leave at 11:00am and return at 3:00pm. Please contact us if you can drive.

The parking lot closest to the entrance and also the section next to the apartment buildings will be done on Thursday or Friday.  This will impact the school mostly on Thursday or Friday when the usual drop-off area may not be available, depending on when work starts that morning.  The middle parking area should still be available.  The path to the school should always be accessible.
