The parent information night will be scheduled for next Thursday evening at 6:00 pm.

    Air Quality and Return to School
     

    The Napa County Office of Education and the five school districts in Napa County:  Napa Valley Unified, St. Helena Unified, Calistoga Joint Unified, Howell Mountain Elementary and Pope Valley Union Elementary, have developed in conjunction with Napa County Public Health Officer Dr. Karen Relucio Emergency Air Quality Guidelines for staff and students.  All of the K-12 public schools in Napa County will be adhering to these guidelines.  

    The guidelines utilize the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Air Quality Index (AQI) numbers.  If the AQI number is in the Green, Yellow, or Orange range schools will be open, with varying actions put in place to protect students and staff.  If the AQI is in the Red schools in that city or community will not be open for the day. Families will be notified via the usual communication channels by 3:00 p.m. the day before if Red is expected the following day.

    Dr. Barbara Nemko, Napa County Superintendent of Schools, said, “Student and staff safety is the highest priority for NCOE and the five Napa County school districts. These guidelines will ensure we are making consistent and safe choices. The Emergency Air Quality Guidelines have been created specific for this fire event, acknowledging that it is ongoing and will have cumulative effects."

    The Napa County Schools Emergency Air Quality Guidelines is located online in English and Spanish.

    As previously announced, Napa Valley Unified School District, St. Helena Unified School District, Pope Valley Union Elementary School District, Howell Mountain Elementary School District and Napa County Office of Education schools plan to resume classes on Wednesday, October 18. Calistoga Joint Unified School District is closed through Friday, October 20. Napa Valley College will also remain closed through Friday, October 20.

    Below is the same announcement in Spanish:

    La Oficina de Educación del Condado de Napa y los cinco distritos escolares del Condado de Napa: Unificado del Valle de Napa, Unificado de St. Helena, Unificado de Calistoga, Primaria Howell Mountain y Primaria Pope Valley, han desarrollado en conjunto con la Oficial de Salud Pública del Condado de Napa, la Dra. Karen Relucio, Directrices de Calidad del Aire en Caso de Emergencia para miembros del personal y estudiantes. Todas las escuelas públicas K-12 del Condado de Napa se adherirán a estas directrices.

     Las directrices utilizan los números del Índice de Calidad del Aire (AQI) de la Agencia de Protección Medioambiental (EPA). Si el número AQI está en el rango Verde, Amarillo o Naranja, las escuelas abrirán, con varias acciones implementadas para proteger a los estudiantes y miembros del personal. Si el AQI está en Rojo, las escuelas de esa ciudad o comunidad no abrirán ese día. Las familias serán notificadas mediante los canales de comunicación habituales a las 3:00 pm del día anterior si se espera un valor Rojo al día siguiente.

     La Dra. Barbara Nemko, Superintendente de Escuelas del Condado de Napa, dijo: “La seguridad de los estudiantes y del personal es la mayor prioridad para el NCOE y los cinco distritos escolares del Condado de Napa. Estas directrices garantizarán que estamos tomando decisiones consistentes y seguras. Las Directrices de Calidad del Aire en Caso de Emergencia han sido creadas específicamente para este incendio, reconociendo que supone algo continuo y que tendrá efectos acumulativos."

     Las Directrices de Calidad del Aire en Caso de Emergencia de las Escuelas del Condado de Napa se pueden encontrar online en inglés y español.

     Como se anunció previamente, el Distrito Escolar Unificado del Valle de Napa, el Distrito Escolar Unificado de St. Helena, el Distrito Unificado de la Escuela Primaria Pope Valley, el Distrito de la Escuela Primaria Howell Mountain y la Oficina de Educación del Condado de Napa están planificando volver a las clases el miércoles 18 de octubre.
