Important Message from Palm Valley School, 10/17

Dear Families,

Due to the poor air quality today stemming from the Thermal area fire, we are rescheduling the Great Shakeout earthquake drill originally for today for next week (TBA) and limiting student time spent outdoors. There is an active smoke warning that goes until later this afternoon/evening for the whole valley, and air quality is still moderately poor today.

We have made a decision that we will cancel or move all outdoor athletic events today, PE, and lunch/recess. We are canceling the MS Flag Football game today, L/MS Cross Country practice, and US Cross Country practice. MS and US Volleyball events will still take place as scheduled today in the gymnasium. While the air outside is okay for most of us, younger students, elderly adults, and anyone with allergies or asthma should not spend time in this air today. We are doing our part to prevent harmful exposure by taking precautions.
