The Gym at Lagunitas School is open and staffed for clean air recreation today from 12 - 5 pm and this weekend from 12 - 7 pm. This community support is to provide an indoor space to move around or simply be away from smoke-filled air.

Closing school is never easy but today I am very glad we did. I stood at the crosswalk this morning to intercept anyone who didn’t get the message yesterday which gave me a few minutes to stand in the smoky air and fully grasp how bad the conditions are. At 8:00 the Air Quality Index was at a very unhealthy 240. I am glad that I didn’t see any children biking or walking to school. Closing the school was the right thing to do but that decision never feels good. People’s routines are disrupted, plans have to change, lessons and events have to be scrapped or re-scheduled; it’s always a hassle. But In the quiet, smoke-filled air behind the limited protection of my respirator mask, I thought of the schools in Butte County, some of which no longer exist, of a whole town that has been burned and of people who are living with a tragedy that makes our situation seem insignificant. There are things we can do to help but Paradise and the surrounding area will never be the same. I’d like to encourage anyone who is able to send support (money is most efficient) to agencies who are providing relief. Butte County Schools has set up an easy link that we can use to contribute: https://www.nvcf.org/fund/butte-county-schools-fire-relief-fund/ . There are many other agencies providing relief as well. Since many of us have an unexpected day off, I’d like to encourage you to use some time to check your own preparedness. Fire season is much longer that it used to be and having a Go Bag and an escape plan is essential year-round. https://www.ready.gov/build-a-kit As Thanksgiving comes up next week, it’s clear that we have a lot to be thankful for- we’ve had some near misses with fire and the air is terrible but our community is strong and intact. Please stay safe… and indoors as much as possible. We look forward to seeing all our students back at school after the break and hopefully under clear skies fresh air. Happy Thanksgiving, John Carroll, Superintendent view image

The Lagunitas School District will be closed tomorrow, Friday, November 16. Due to air quality in the “Very Unhealthy” range. Marin County school superintendents discussed the issue late this afternoon and are in agreement that closing schools is in the best interest of our students' health. We recognize that school closures can create significant inconvenience for some families and we appreciate your cooperation and understanding at this time. Thank you, John Carroll, Superintendent

Many of you have inquired about how to help the victims of the Butte County wild fire. The Butte County Office of Education created the Schools Fire Relief Fund to provide a one-stop location where individuals or organizations can provide support directly to schools in Butte County. Donors can either specify a specific district or use (textbooks, clothes, etc.) for the funds or make an open donation. Donations can be made online at https://www.nvcf.org/fund/butte-county-schools-fire-relief-fund/

From Superintendent John Carroll: Schools in Marin County will remain open today, Thursday, November 15. We will continue to follow guidance from the Health Department and modify activities as needed. If your child has been having a significant reaction to the poor air conditions and you choose to keep them home, please notify the office as soon as possible.
