San Jose public school districts remain open despite poor air quality

Bay Area

San Jose remains in a Code Red with unhealthy air conditions, but public school districts have decided to remain open. 

Some parents aren’t happy about this. 

Many have contacted KRON4 complaining about the fact that schools are remaining open under these unhealthy air conditions. 

Santa Clara County Office of Education says the county’s Public Health Department recommended schools remain open under this Code Red. 

School district officials say students will be kept indoors with air conditioning units recycling internal air. 

Earlier this week, they said once the air quality reaches 150, then there will also be no outdoor activities. 

Right now air quality in San Jose is 184. 

So there will be no P.E., sports and marching practices, and games will be rescheduled. 

School district officials here in San Jose say they will continue to monitor conditions to see if any changes need to be made.
