A number of Nevada County schools closed Friday

Due to heavy smoke from area wildfires, a number of western Nevada County Schools will be closed on Friday.

“We are taking it one day at a time,” said Brett McFadden, superintendent of the Nevada Joint Union High School District. “We are looking at our decision making on an hourly basis, and have received over 100 calls enquiring, and we ultimately felt it best to make this decision because air quality concerns remain.”

Nevada Union Joint High School District has cancelled all Friday classes — this includes Nevada Union, Bear River, Ghidotti Early College, NU Tech, North Point Academy and Silver Springs.

Grass Valley Elementary School District also cancelled classes Friday, including Lyman Gilmore, Grass Valley Charter, Scotten School, Bell Hill Academy including all before and after school programs, Our Kids’ Place Preschool, Grass Valley Little Learners and PIP Preschool.

Union Hill elementary and middle schools are closed, along with the The Penn Valley Union Elementary School District.
