As Lewis and Clark Elementary School let out in Wenatchee, many were wearing masks and covering their faces as the city continues to be chocked with smoke from nearby wildfires, Thurs., Sept. 20, 2012. Maricela Pena, center, picks up four of her children. At left, teacher Lucy Garcia wears a mask while on crossing guard duty. Garcia said the masks have been donated to the school and she's been wearing hers when outside for the last four days.
