SAN RAFAEL, CA – All San Rafael City Schools and the Central Services Office will be closed Friday due to the impacts of the North Bay wildfires on staff members and the unhealthy air quality, district officials said. San Rafael City Schools includes the San Rafael Elementary School District and the San Rafael High School District.
All public schools in Marin County are reporting they will be closed. Additionally, Marin County Athletic League has canceled all sporting events for the weekend.
“The loss of life and property is devastating, and we currently have many staff members in danger of being evacuated from their homes, including many of our staff members who live in areas who have been recently advised that they should prepare for possible evacuation,” Superintendent Michael Watenpaugh said in a statement posted on San Rafael City Schools’ website.
