The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) has issued an air quality alert for nearly the entire state of Minnesota starting Wednesday night. The alert excludes the North Shore.

The alert takes effect at 10 p.m. and runs until Friday at 3 p.m. The affected area includes Detroit Lakes, International Falls, Duluth, St. Cloud, the Twin Cities, Marshall, Rochester and the tribal nations of Fond du Lac, Upper Sioux, Leech Lake, Red Lake, Mille Lacs and Prairie Island.

According to the MPCA, smoke from wildfires located north of the Canadian border in Ontario and Manitoba will be brought into Minnesota by northerly winds. Heavy smoke is expected to arrive around 10 p.m. Wednesday near the Canadian border and mid-morning Thursday in central and southern Minnesota. During this time, fine particle levels are expected to be in the Orange AQI category, a level that is considered unhealthy for sensitive groups.

People whose health is affected by unhealthy air quality include those who have asthma or other breathing conditions, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; people who have heart disease or high blood pressure; children and other adults; and people of all ages who are doing extended or heavy, physical activity like playing sports or working outdoors.

Please email with any questions and as our phones will not be available for questions this morning via text or call. 

Makeup Requests:

Please remember to email for make-up requests and therefore you do not have to call or text to make up.  We will add your child to the attendance rosters and notify the facility directors of all make-up requests.   

WEATHER UPDATES/CANCELATIONS: It is really timing.  Generally it should be expected that our tennis camps and tennis lessons for kids and adults will go on as scheduled unless it is obvious that weather precludes this. Weather updates will be on our website (Home- Weather Hotwire). We try to post updates an hour in advance to give parents enough time to adjust their schedules, but may need to cancel as close as only 30 minutes prior if we do get bad weather just before camp will begin.
