A Spare the Air Alert is in effect for the Bay Area October 11 & 12, 2017.  Due to the current widespread fires impacting the bay area, the Bay Area Air Quality Management District has issued a severe smoke advisory.

Newark USD schools are advised to:

  • Limit outdoor activities to avoid unnecessary exposure to smoke by keeping students inside for recesses, breaks, physical education, etc.
  • Reduce exposure to smoky air by remaining indoors with windows and doors closed, if possible.
  • Move outdoor team practices indoors

Students and staff who are highly sensitive may be experiencing symptoms and we are asking principals to follow standard procedures for students displaying any symptoms that may become problematic by notifying parents immediately. Please note, a Spare the Air day has been called for 10/12 and the Superintendent’s office will notify the schools if it is lifted.
