SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KRON) – As wildfires continue to burn across the Bay Area, some school districts have announced that classes are being canceled.
On Wednesday, the Solano County Superintendent of Schools and Office of Education made the decision to cancel distance learning in multiple districts due to the LNU Lightning Complex Fire.
Classes will be canceled through the rest of the week for the following districts as evacuations, power outages, and unhealthy air quality continue:
- Fairfield-Suisun USD
- Travis USD
- Vacaville USD
- SCOE-operated programs in these districts
The districts will work with the emergency operation centers, in addition to providing meals for students.
