Dear Marta and Students,
Thank you so much for asking about us! It is nice to know that people are thinking of us.
The forest fire has burned over 1600 houses and over 88 000 people have had to evacuate. Many have come to Edmonton. We do not know when they will be allowed to return to their homes.
We are sad for the people who lost everything. We are very thankful that no one has died in a fire.
It has been very warm and dry here so there are many fires burning. We have to be very careful. The humidity is only 10%. We need rain!
No one at Sweet Grass School lives near the fire but I am sure some have friends and relatives who had to run from the fire.
Thank you again for asking about us! Here is a short video:
