When Are Solano Schools Closed for Air Quality? 

Solano School districts are committed to staying open to the extent possible to support student learning, working families, and student safety. However, districts understand that some parents may opt to keep students home due to poor air quality. In most instances, these absences will be excused. However, parents should check directly with their school for information about possible excused absences.

Air quality conditions can change quickly. School districts may need to close schools during the school day and parents should plan accordingly.

Schools will be closed if air quality reaches levels 5 and 6 ("Very Unhealthy" and "Hazardous" levels with AQI rating ranging from 200 to 500.) Districts may close schools during events with lower AQI levels based upon factors like temperature, power outages, evacuations, etc. All districts will communicate directly with parents and staff about closures. 

 

 Following Recommendations from Experts 

Solano County school districts follow guidelines created by the California Air Pollution Control Officers Association (CAPCOA). These guidelines are endorsed by the California Department of Education (CDE) and these organizations.
