Air Quality GuidelinesPublished by tiffany.manwaring on Fri, 08/10/2018 - 17:53
Parents, As we continue to have severe smoke and poor air quality, I wanted to send out the air quality guidelines we use within the district to ensure student safety. The following chart is the guidelines per district policy:
PM 2.5% Instructions
0 - 35.4 All students outside
35.5 - 55.4 "sensitive students” should be accommodated to avoid outdoor activities
55.5 - 89 “sensitive students” and those students experiencing respiratory symptoms should avoid outdoor activities
90 or higher, physical activities should be moved indoors for ALL students.
The website we use is: https://www.purpleair.com/map? We use the PM 2.5% index as our reading. We have a sensor in Sierra Park which gives us an accurate reading for the school. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact the school.
