Air Quality - Indoor Recess

Air quality update:  Moving forward we will treat this like we do extreme cold or rainy days.  We will make that call on a daily basis, and always err on the side of student safety. If the air quality is still unhealthy, we will still have the students go to the cafeteria or gym first thing in the morning.


The smoke from surrounding wildfires has caused our air quality to dip into the "Very Unhealthy" category. We will still have school, but recesses and PE will all be indoors. Regular recesses will be in classrooms. Lunch recess will be in the gym. I have spoken with Mr. Hatrock, and he will have PE in the gym so our students will still be getting some activity.

At this time, it looks like we will be doing this through at least Wednesday. Obviously, we will continue to monitor the situation and adjust as necessary.

I know this is not the best way to start the school year, but keeping students safe doesn't come with a schedule. Thank you for your flexibility and positive attitude. This too shall pass.
