Air Quality Guidelines

Air Quality Monitoring for School-Related Outdoor Activities

Check the current and forecasted air quality status for our area online at Or during wildfire smoke, go to for status updates. (This is the only monitoring site that is to be used by the Yakima School District.)

Decisions for outdoor activity are made by the Superintendent for recess (or outdoor events during the school day) and building athletic directors for after-school outdoor sports/activity practice or contests. Sensitive groups or students experiencing adverse symptoms should see the school nurse during school and their coach/supervisor if after school. The school nurse has masks available for students and staff.

If you have questions or need further clarification, please get in touch with the Superintendent's office at 509-573-7001.
