Air Quality

LESD follows the US Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) colored flag program for determining how to categorize and respond to air quality issues in our area. When air quality is in an unhealthy range, we generally ask schools to limit or avoid outside activities. 

To determine local air quality, district staff monitor the EPA's AirNow and the South Coast Air Quality Management District AQMD websites.
