Air Quality and Smoky Conditions

Northern California continues to experience ongoing wildfires, and these fires are impacting Davis and the surrounding regions. Depending on the day and wind direction, the resulting smoke is creating air quality concerns.

DJUSD is in consultation with the Yolo-Solano Air Quality Management District and Yolo County Public Health to determine when to restrict school activities and/or close schools.

Per public health guidance, recess and physical education (P.E.) will be held indoors if the Air Quality Index (AQI) is above 150. All eating will still occur outdoors as long as the AQI stays below 200, but students will move indoors when done eating. We will continue to monitor the air quality each day during periods of concern using to determine air quality.

The School Air Quality Activity Recommendations Chart outlines appropriate school activities as they relate to the air quality thresholds.
