With the recent weather inversion and so many kids these days having asthma, a lot more people are thinking about the positive aspects of clean air. Two local schools have recently joined the ‘No-Idle Zone’ program.
Libby Center and Moran Prairie Elementary are now taking part in the program, which provides No-Idle Zone signs to post near trouble spots, which typically at schools are near student pick-up areas. The signs ask drivers to turn off their cars in those areas instead of letting them idle, and accompanying educational information is sent home to parents and activities are available to teach kids about air pollution in the classroom.
If you’re interested in your child’s school being in the program, check out Spokane Clean Air Agency’s newsletter here. The No-Idle info is on the third page.
