    It is raining ash and the smoke is so thick! But we are still in school!! All private and charter schools around us are closed as are all jr high and high schools, and colleges who are farther away from the fires than my elementary school. I have 4 students. Half our staff could not come in today due to being evacuated or the road closures. We passed out masks to the students who came in. It is dangerous and miserable, but lausd only cares about $$$, and not student /staff safety.

    So frustrating! I know lots of the Santa Clarita schools closed because nobody can get in or out of the area with the freeway closed. We've got lots of missing people today that are stuck with the road closures.

    You are the one Iím thinking about!! I canít believe you have 4 students! I really doubt theyíre able to concentrate or learn. Must be so stressful all around. I hear the wind raging around me but Iím praying it subsided so firefighters can get an edge on this fire!!

    Be safe! My company has a small satellite office in the Walnut Creek area. Power to the office wasn't cut, but just a block away it was. I wonder if the employees are having difficulty getting in.

    My 4 kids were playing with legos and magnatiles all day, so they were quite happy! lol. Most classes had less than 5 students. Our district decided to send kids home at 12:45. District said teachers and staff need to stay until normal time, but my principal sent us home when the kids left.

    I hope they put up a big fuss about this!! Teachers are upset they are having to use a sick day when they could not come to work. We had to combine 2 and 3 classes because teachers couldn’t come in and not enough subs to go around. We had a total of 88 students in the entire school today.
