Lake County School Air Quality Guidelines

The health and safety of our students and staff have been our top priority these last few months.  The local fires that are persistently surrounding us have significantly impacted our air quality.  We do have an air quality matrix that we use to determine whether students should play outside or if the school will need to be closed due to unhealthy conditions. 

We use the Purple Air site to track the current air quality.  There are several scales within the Purple Air site that report air quality.  We use the AQ and I filter to track air quality.  The air sensor that reports data to Purple Air is located at our school. This gives us exact information about the air quality.
