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.

The districts will work with the emergency operation centers, in addition to providing meals for students.
