Yountville Elementary School

  • Hello, NVUSD families,

    The continuing effects of the Camp Fire on our air quality can be difficult, especially for those with breathing sensitivities, and the airnow.gov website indicates that we can expect the index to remain red on Tuesday, Nov. 13.

    We have been in discussions with our staff, the County Office of Education and other North Bay districts regarding school closures due to air quality. After consideration of various factors, NVUSD has decided to hold classes on Tuesday, and will take the following precautions to lessen the effects on our students and staff.

    • In elementary schools, teachers will be directed to move PE, lunch, recess and any other relevant activities indoors. Secondary schools will be encouraged to maximize as much internal space as possible and will modify their supervision protocols to ensure students are safe.

    • We will also direct all staff to keep doors and windows closed.

    • Our Maintenance and Operations staff will operate the ventilation system with recirculating (not outside) air and dampers closed, to maintain the air quality in the classrooms and staff areas

    • Teachers and other staff who work directly with your students will follow protocols for any students who have concerning symptoms or reactions by contacting parents directly. Our school nurses will also be available to respond to concerns.

    You know your student’s health and needs best, and we encourage you to make the best choice for your student in terms of attendance. If you decide to keep your student out of school, please just follow the usual attendance protocols. The absence will be excused and teachers will talk with your student about making up the work.

    NVUSD will continue to monitor the situation and will send follow up communication, as needed. Thank you for your support.
