In a letter written to parents by Tim Taylor Superintendent of Butte County Office of Education:
Safety of our students, staff and community is the number one concern for Butte County Office of Education. Due to the current and forecasted weather conditions, coupled with the uncertainty of the spillway structure and release of more water from Lake Oroville, as Superintendent of Schools, I am calling an emergency situation and advising closure of public schools on Friday, February 10, 2017 in the Oroville Union High School District which includes Bangor Union Elementary School District, Feather Falls Union Elementary School District, Golden Feather Union Elementary School District, Oroville Elementary School District, Palermo Union Elementary School District, Pioneer Union Elementary School District and Thermalito Union Elementary School District in Butte County. All of Butte County Office of Education offices and schools in Oroville will also be closed.
