Due to the widespread fires in Western North Carolina and its impact on local air quality, we are monitoring the Air Quality Forecast frequently. School Administrators are reviewing this information and making decisions at each school with the safety and well-being of staff and students as their main goal. We have not mandated any restriction on outdoor activity at this time but staff have been informed that if any student or parent has concerns about activity outside, we can and will offer an alternative activity as needed. If you would prefer your child be kept inside during school hours, please contact the school to notify them of this.
