Spokane Public Schools will start on time on Tuesday

From staff reports

Spokane Public Schools and many other area school districts will hold classes on schedule on Tuesday.

Like many school districts in the Inland Northwest, Spokane Public Schools canceled classes Monday as a result of the snow.

The district warned, however, that elementary students taking the bus will be picked up 30 minutes late and middle school bus riders will be picked up 1 hour late. High school bus riders will be picked up on time.

Medical Lake, Reardan-Edwall, Orchard Prairie, Great Northern, Lind-Ritzville, Washtucna, LaCrosse and Sprague-Lamont school districts announced a two-hour delayed start for Tuesday.

Roads remain slick. The city of Spokane reported Tuesday morning that it has 46 crews working to clear streets.

Emergency crews are dealing with several slide-offs on Interstate 90 from Coeur d’Alene to Post Falls. Traffic in both directions was moving slowly.
