Carondelet is open Today (Oct. 12)
Good morning. Carondelet and De La Salle will be open today.
We are aware that several school districts have made the decision to close school for today while several will remain open.
Our students are our priority and we will take the following steps to ensure their health:
▪ Typical outdoor activities, like Kinesiology classes, will be held inside
▪ Lunch will be held inside and students will be kept inside on breaks
▪ Windows and doors will be kept shut
▪ Staff will be very mindful of students, staff and visitors who are sensitive to air quality
▪ Maintenance staff is ensuring that outside air infiltration is kept to a minimum
We recognize each family will make decisions that are personally best for them regarding school attendance on Thursday. Any absence related to air quality will be excused.
Air quality is at 109 at this time but is supposed to be rated at 180 later this morning, depending on winds Here is the recommendation for that rating from the Contra Costa Air Quality site:
Active children and adults, and people with respiratory disease, such as asthma, should avoid prolonged outdoor exertion. Everyone else, especially children, should limit prolonged outdoor exertion.
