Notice to Families Regarding Air Quality

Posted On: 11/13/2018 11:07 AM

Dear DWS Families and Colleagues,
 
As the smoke of lost homes, flora, fauna and dreams fills our valley, we are mindful of the families experiencing such devastating losses. 

The safety of our students is a primary concern. With air quality moving into the hazardous ranges, Davis Waldorf School is closely monitoring air quality numbers. We will be keeping students inside when the numbers go into the unhealthy range and ask that you pick up your students right away after school if they are not going to extended care. Extended care students will be kept inside. 

We welcome your questions, comments and support.

Lauren Hickman, Jody Roach, and Jenn Short
