Air Quality Information and Expanded Covid Testing Options

Air Quality and SRVUSD Outdoor Events

 

We want to provide you with a reminder of what actions we take at our schools in response to the Air Quality Index (AQI) readings.

 

Because we are a large District, geographically, each school site monitors the AQI for their area. School sites adjust activities and events according to the District chart which can be viewed on the Air Quality page on our website: www.srvusd.net/airquality. As explained on our webpage, the SRVUSD uses www.AirNow.gov to determine AQI readings. Please reference our webpage for more information.

 

Any SRVUSD event occurring outdoors when the AQI reaches 151 or above will be cancelled, including but not limited to: social events, rallies, dances, carnivals, etc.

 

For Athletic Competitions:

North Coast Section (NCS) governs decisions about when outdoor sporting events will be cancelled or postponed based on their bylaws. The schools of the SRVUSD and all NCS member schools must comply with the decisions of NCS. 

 

The NCS bylaw reads: “An air quality index of less than 151 must be registered for all high school outdoor athletic events hosted by NCS member schools during preseason, league and section championship events. NCS member schools may not host outdoor contests when the AQI is equal to or greater than 151. NOTE: Host school determines AQI using an app or website info.  (NCS Board of Managers 4/3/18).” The California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) recommends using the www.airnow.gov application for this purpose.
