LAUSD Closes San Fernando Valley Schools Due To Wildfires

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Several San Fernando Valley schools will stay closed through Friday due to a new fire in the Sepulveda Pass and ongoing fires burning elsewhere across Southern California. A full list is available on the district website.

Los Angeles Unified School District announced all San Fernando Valley area schools will remain closed through the rest of the week after being closed Wednesday. The district says all students and staff should plan to remain home due to smoke and ash that have permeated the air from fires in the Sepulveda Pass, the Sylmar area and Ventura.
