The Washoe County School District has canceled all classes for Wednesday, September 14.
In-person classes at UNR have also been canceled for the day.
As of 8 a.m. Wednesday, the air quality in Reno was 345, which is considered hazardous. This is the highest AQI in Reno since the Mosquito Fire began.
According to WCSD, ‘the decision is based on the potential for prolonged exposure for students who are identified as a vulnerable population. Additional factors that led to this decision included students who walk or bike to school and information provided by the National Weather Service about weather patterns potentially improving or worsening air quality conditions.’
Due to the poor air quality, Truckee Meadows Community College is also canceling in-person classes and services.
The Child Care Center and other TMCC locations will remain operational.
Other indoor TMCC buildings will be open if you require air conditioning.
Class has been canceled for the day at Pinecrest Academy of Northern Nevada, Mater Academy, and Doral Academy.
Due to the smoke, Lion & Lamb Christian School has also canceled classes.
According to WCSD, this will be a contingency day, with no instruction in person or by temporary distance learning.
