I wouldn’t want to be them…

Right now this is what many of the area school districts are up against.

Okay, I’m Growing Old of This

Central Valley, West Valley, East Valley, and Mead school districts are closed tomorrow. Spokane Public is not. Here’s the ESD 101 site to check for more closures.

2 weeks, 3 days?

Spokane County Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich may very well cancel school tomorrow. He’s holding a press conference this afternoon. I’ll post after he’s done (I think the press conference is at 4:30, so I’ll try to post soon after that.) Here’s the Spokesman blurb about it. 

Central Valley, West Valley, Nine Mile Falls, Medical Lake, Liberty, Mead, East Valley, Freeman, Great Northern, Orchard Prairie and Spokane districts will comply. Cheney and Riverside districts already had made the decision to close for the day. In Lincoln County, the Reardan-Edwall School District will be closed.  

Update: He has ‘strongly recommended’ the closure of all schools in Sookane County for tomorrow, and officials are checking if he can order the schools closed.  The link above is still good, and the grey box above shows school closures as told in that Spokesman story. Prep and St. Georges are closed, also.


Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It…No!

Baby, it’s COLD outside.  The most flurries and most furies have given birth to the snow storm of the century, and it isn’t going anywhere.  This snow means business.

Local snowfall records have been broken in Spokane and Coeur d’ Alene.  It is the most outrageous snow storm since 1895.  The forecast can hardly keep with its mysterious appearances, or so it seems.

Are you sick of ALL of this snow?  What are your favorite indoor activities for the everlasting winter months?  What are your favorite outdoor activities (don’t you dare say shoveling snow!)?

About this blog

In 2006, then-editor Steve Smith of The Spokesman-Review had the idea of starting a publication for an often forgotten audience: teenagers. The Vox Box was a continuation of the Vox, an all-student staffed newspaper published by The Spokesman-Review. High school student journalists who staffed the Vox made all content decisions as they learn about the trade of journalism. This blog's mission was to give students an opportunity to publish their voices. The Vox Box and the Vox wrapped up in June 2009, but you can follow former staffers' new blog at
