Smoky Skies Bulletin
Updated Sept 13: Unfortunately, the skies in the Kootenays have once again filled with wildfire smoke originating from wildfires in the USA. There is an Air Quality Health Advisory in effect for our region. The School House programs will remain indoors for the duration of their programming when the air quality is rated greater than 3. Right now the forecast predicts that it will remain 10+ for several days. Educators will be creative with ways to ensure children get active, gross motor play while remaining indoors. During this time after school pick up for our Wildcat Program will be suspended to prevent staff and children from having to walk to The School House in the smoke. Alternate plans will need to be made by parents for after school drop off. You can stay up to date on air quality ratings at the link above. The School House will keep families up to date with any changes as the week progresses. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding!
