LOUISVILLE, Colo. (AP) More than 85 fifth-graders from Louisville have been airlifted after being stranded near Jamestown while studying at an outdoor education center.
The students were greeted by lots of hugs from waiting parents and friends on Saturday.
One of the parent volunteer with the students, Dustin Sagrillo, told the Daily Camera that he and a group of fathers shoveled trenches and cleared debris at the Cal-Wood Education Center. Other parents cooked and led activities.
Outdoor programs are a rite of passage for many Colorado students.
On Friday, a group of students from Jefferson County had to hike down Mount Evans after the road to their outdoor school was closed by flooding.
