Dear Families and Staff, June 8, 2023 -- The smoke and haze over the past few days has been unprecedented for our region. Based on reports from our weather service, the air quality is anticipated to improve throughout the day, but it will take time for the smoke to move out of the area. We will continue to monitor conditions by consulting with the local health department, follow the guidance of the Department of Public Health (DPH) and monitor air quality through the Air Now website https://www.airnow.gov/. Outdoor activities will continue to be suspended today until further notice. Building administration will be in touch with any school-specific information regarding scheduled events.
