Air quality school closures: Districts in Spokane area cancel classes

The Medical Lake School District canceled in-person classes Wednesday due to air quality.

SPOKANE, Wash. — School districts around the Inland Northwest have canceled in-person classes for the third day in a row due to poor air quality. 

Air quality around the Inland Northwest has ranged from unhealthy to hazardous since Saturday, as wildfire smoke from fires in California, Oregon and other areas along the West Coast blew into the area. 

Below is a list of schools modifying/cancelling classes due to the air quality
