Air Quality Information Memo

Dear Parent/Guardian,

 

With multiple fires burning across the state of California, the air quality in the greater Sacramento region has been and may continue to be poor.  As we begin classes and athletic events, we want to be proactive in communicating with you about how we will address the overall safety of our students and athletes during this time period.

 Each day, Antelope administrators and Athletic Directors will use the county air quality index as our primary indicator to determine the level of outside activities for the given school day.  In addition, we will work with district office staff as well as the CIF Section Office prior to determining the level of outside activities.  Finally, we will be watching the specific conditions around the high school (i.e. particulate matter levels in the air) prior to students and/or athletes being allowed to participate in outside activities.

Should we determine that outside activities (PE, Band, Athletics) are permissible and safe for the school day, staff and coaches have been and will continue to be vigilant about providing students/athletes with plenty of rest, regular hydration, and frequent breaks throughout classes as well as practices.  Our staff members will work with the specific needs of each student during this time to make classes and athletic events as safe as possible.  Should your student have asthma or other medical conditions that may make this time period more difficult for him/her and the school has not been notified, please contact your student’s teacher, coach or an Antelope school administrator so we can work with you and your student directly.

 

Student safety is our number one concern and we hope these precautions show how serious we are about addressing their needs and working with the AnHS community during these poor air quality days.  Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to the school and we will be more than happy to address your questions and individual student needs.

We look forward to a great 2018-2019 school year.  Go Titans!
