Our School Has Adopted the Following Guidelines Regarding Recess and Air Quality
What will the school do?
We will check the Particulate Matter (PM2.5) levels. This information will guide our outdoor physical activities.
- When the PM2.5 level falls between 35.5 and 55.4, we will let sensitive students stay indoors.
- When the PM2.5 level is above 55.5, outdoor recess will be cancelled for all children and alternative play/exercise opportunities will be offered indoors.
What should parents do?
- Parents, with advice from your health care provider, need to contact the office if your child is sensitive to poor air quality.
- Sensitive children may include those with significant or poorly controlled asthma, cystic fibrosis, chronic lung disease, congenital heart disease, compromised immune systems, or other respiratory problems.
