Wildfire Season Updates

In preparation for wildfire (and smoke) season, the Fort McMurray Public School District is providing tools and links to check smoke and weather conditions. This does not replace direct school, and District Office communications portals. Please continue to monitor the News section on our website, or Twitter: @FMPSD for real time updates, as well as emails from your child’s school.
