MARIN NEWSLETTER 10/12/2017

Dear Marin Families,
I'm sending a brief message to inform you of our actions regarding the changing air quality. The Albany Elementary School Principals have been checking reputable air quality sites throughout each day, to determine the quality of the air outside for our students and staff on campus. We have been talking frequently and making plans together for how to support our schools. We have been making decisions at each recess to either keep students inside, allow students to be outdoors, or provide for optional indoor options as needed.
For example, today and yesterday we ate and played indoors and had PE inside. This plan is flexible, as determined by the changing minute by minute air quality conditions.
We continue to send our positive thoughts for clear air and safety for all those affected by these terrible fires.
Warmly,
Melisa Pfohl, Principal
Marin Elementary

STAFF DEVELOPMENT DAY: Tomorrow, Friday, October 13, is staff development day. There will be no school for students. School is closed.
