The air quality in Castro Valley and the surrounding area is currently in the "unhealthy zone." Under these conditions, both healthy and vulnerable people may experience some respiratory issues. Students will be kept inside today during recess, lunch, and PE. We will also be monitoring students for signs of distress.
