SCSD Air Quality Protocols

SCSD has protocols in place to prioritize student and staff safety, as well as ensure learning continues when air quality conditions shift. Our priority is to maintain safe in-person learning for students.

You can find the most current SCSD Air Quality Protocols on our website. Consistent with the County Office of Education and the San Mateo County Health Department, SCSD uses Air Now and Bay Area Air Quality Management District Index to monitor climate conditions.  Click on the title link to learn more.
