MISSOULA - Missoula County Public Schools (MCPS) has moved outdoor activities indoors due to unhealthy air quality.

A letter sent to MCPS families on Monday afternoon states that outdoor competitions scheduled for Monday have been canceled.

Practices have also moved indoors where space is available.

When air quality reaches the “unhealthy” level, MCPS moves all outdoor activities — including recess — to appropriate indoor spaces.

MCPS will continue to monitor Missoula's air quality and provide further information and updates to students and families as warranted.
