La Tuna Canyon Fire Update - School Open September 5 / Air Quality Update
Thank you so much for your prayers, love, and support over the last few days. We are so blessed by this community and continue to pray for emergency crews and for everyone affected by the La Tuna Canyon Fire.
The school will be open tomorrow, and we have been carefully monitoring local air quality. Sun Valley has been under a smoke advisory through the weekend, and the forecast predicts an air quality index of “moderate” (defined as: unusually sensitive people should consider reducing prolonged or heavy exertion) for Tuesday, September 5.
We will ensure the students avoid vigorous outdoor and indoor exertion while they are on campus. However, your child’s health is paramount, and if he or she has lung or respiratory conditions such as asthma, please consider keeping them home from school.
Please contact the appropriate school office if your student will be out for the day, and they will receive an “excused absence.”
While classes will be held as scheduled, we are committed to taking every precaution to keep your child safe.
Additionally, please double check road conditions and potential closures tomorrow morning before heading to campus as this information has been fluid throughout the weekend.
Thank you again for your care and concern these past few days. We are overwhelmed by the outpouring of service, especially during this morning’s clean-up effort. All left-behind equipment is now with the Facilities Department, so if you are missing anything, please check in at extension 276.
