Air Quality Alerts

Since October 2017, the Bay Area has experienced a number of days with poor air quality due to fires in northern California. For the 2019-2020 school year,  CVUSD will be following the guidelines in the "School Air Quality Activity Recommendations, which were created by the California Department of Education in partnership with the California Air Resources Board, California Air Pollution Control Officers Association, California County Superintendents Educational Services Association, Association of California School Administrators, and California School Boards Association. The template that CVUSD will be following is below.
 
 To determine local air quality, district staff monitor several websites, including: When the air is particularly bad, district staff checks these sites on the hour so as to be able to communicate accurate information to the sites. District staff also consults with surrounding districts and the Alameda County Office of Education to determine what steps to take to minimize the risk for students and staff.
