SMPS will be closed today, Tuesday, October 29. A large percentage of our families have been displaced and not expected to repopulate or are assisting evacuated families. 600 plus acres have burned so far with damaged structures. Several neighborhoods in the Palisades and adjacent communities continue to be in Mandatory Evacuation Zones (Red) and Evacuation Warning/Preparedness Zones (Yellow), including St. Matthew’s. While firefighters have halted the forward progress of the fire, we are expecting another round of strong Santa Ana winds beginning Tuesday evening through Thursday, contributing to high fire danger in our area. Please visit the Parent Portal and link, Getty Fire Information for Families, for updated information, and stay tuned for further alerts regarding the next couple of days.
