Air Quality Update
All of our schools including those schools and programs operated by the Solano County Office of Education are currently open. According to Dr. Matyas, Solano County Director of Public Health, air quality is a dynamic process that is affected by the amount of particulate matter from pollutants such as material burned by fire, the amount and direction of winds, and other weather conditions such as humidity and pressure.
The fires have caused the Air Quality Index (AQI) for various parts of Solano County to range in their levels of concern. Solano County Public Health continues to recommend staying indoors and limiting outdoor activities when air quality conditions are unhealthy.
We will continue to monitor the air quality in the area and should it get into the purple or maroon area, other decisions may be made. At this time, however, the forecast is that the air will be in the yellow and orange levels. All school districts and the County Office of Education are monitoring the air quality and will communicate with staff and parents of students if there are any changes.
Note: Values above 500 are beyond the AQI. Follow recommendations for the Hazardous category.
This year’s countywide Stuff the Bus campaign, held June 28 – July 28, 2018, proved to be another huge success. Backpacks continued to arrive through mid-September. Due to this outpouring of our local community, we were able to collect 761 backpacks for our homeless and foster youth, an increase from the 312 backpacks collected in 2017. “We appreciate the commitment from our Solano County community partners. Together we are working to create opportunities for our deserving youth,” says Solano County Superintendent of Schools Lisette Estrella-Henderson.
