As you are aware, recent Canadian wildfires have created poor air quality throughout the area.  The district is continuing to monitor the region's air quality index, and will act accordingly throughout the day tomorrow, Wednesday, June 7th. 

Parts of North Jersey, including Essex  County, are under a red alert this evening. This means that air quality is unhealthy, and sensitive groups, such as individuals with asthma, will have difficulty outdoors.  While these conditions remain, individuals are advised to limit outdoor activities.

Based on information tomorrow morning, the district may limit outside activities, and move physical education, recess, and other events indoors. 

The district will assess the situation overnight.

Thank you for your attention to this matter. 

Please stay safe.
