Air quality in the Sacramento region continues to remain impacted by smoke from the Camp Fire in Butte County. All after-school athletic and outdoor activities have been cancelled or moved indoors today.


At the recommendation of Sacramento County’s Public Health Officer and consistent with predictions of air quality by the Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District, Natomas Unified will continue on Wednesday the decision it implemented today to cancel or move indoors all outdoor activities, such as recess, PE, and after-school athletics.


For Thursday and Friday, school principals will be required to continue to monitor air quality forecasts for their location and move school-day activities indoors should air quality enter the “red” or “unhealthy” range.


For after-school activities, our guidance remains the same: outdoor activities are strongly encouraged to move indoors or reschedule to a later date. If neither is possible, coaches must follow these public health guidelines.


District staff will continue to monitor air quality reports and issue further instructions or restrictions should conditions worsen. Thank you for your flexibility and cooperation.
