Alta Loma Middle School

    Dear SSFUSD Community:

    According to the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD) and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) AIRNow index, air quality levels have substantially improved over the weekend.

    As these improved conditions are expected to continue into next week, we have determined that our schools will be OPEN as regularly scheduled on Monday, November 19th, and Tuesday, November 20th.

    (Please note that our district observes school holidays on Wednesday, November 21st through Friday, November 23rd)

    While conditions remain in the “Unhealthy” range of the Air Quality Index (AQI), we will be continuing to enact our limited outdoor activity protocol. This includes modifying daily activity that would otherwise be conducted outdoors, such as moving physical education classes, lunch activities, recess, outdoor rallies, sporting events, etc., to indoor facilities, or in some cases, cancellation of activities.

    If conditions change to the “Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups” range of the Air Quality Index (AQI), all outdoor school activities would continue as normal, however, students with known respiratory conditions such as asthma would be encouraged to refrain from outdoor activities that involve heavy physical exertion, such as athletic practices.

    Families who are concerned about the health of their students will be allowed keep their students at home. Any such student will be given an excused absence.

    While we are following the Air Quality Forecast, we will also be actively monitoring conditions in South San Francisco and all local areas of our schools. If conditions change, we will post an update and communicate with our schools to ensure our community remains informed.
