At 7:30 pm, Monday evening 11/12, the following message was sent to parents:
I am writing to let you know that school will remain closed tomorrow, Tuesday the 13th, due to the poor air quality in Napa.
As you know, the open air layout of our campus means that we do not have a way of keeping your students inside. Additionally, our rooms are not equipped with the kind of ventilation systems that would be able to filter out particulates from the air.
The health and safety of your children is our top concern, and so the administration has once again decided that the safest choice is to cancel school.
Thank you all for your patience as we considered this decision.
We regret the inconvenience this closure will cause you, however, we thank you for your support as we do the best we can to protect the health of our students and staff.
You can expect to hear from us around this time tomorrow evening as we move forward with this week. We hope to be back in school ASAP, but we will have to take it day by day.
Please keep all those displaced by the Camp Fire in Butte County in your prayers, as we know how painful this can be for a community.
If you'd like to track the air quality for yourself you can do so here: https://www.purpleair.
