When does the school schedule indoor recess rather than outdoor recess based on the air quality in your communities?
Student health and safety is our primary concern. As such, schools monitor air quality indexes and take appropriate action based on guidance from the Utah Department of Health.
The guidance aligns with federal Air Quality Index (AQI) recommendations and links indoor recess recommendations to PM2.5 levels, which is the air pollutant of main concern during winter months. The guidance also takes into account students with respiratory symptoms or pre-existing respiratory conditions who may be more sensitive to poor air quality.
