For those who are unaware, there are a number of wildfires currently burning in Quebec, Canada. The smoke from those fires is drifting south to the United States, causing hazy skies and a decline in air quality. Since wildfire smoke may pose health concerns to certain populations, the Warren County School District is following the recommendations based on air quality data provided by AirNow, the official U.S. Air Quality Index (AQI). The AQI is a color-coded index designed to communicate whether air quality is healthy or unhealthy for you and recommend steps to protect your health. You may visit AirNow at www.AirNow.gov, enter your zip code, to see what the AQI value is. The district and its schools will be following the recommendations based on the AQI through the remainder of the school year. Be aware that conditions may be different in different parts of the county.
