Air Quality Index

You may be aware that the Korean Ministry of Education has recently changed the scale used to determine the air quality in Korea.  An average reading of PM 2.5 was 16-50 and 51-100 was considered bad.  Now, an average reading would be from 16-35 and a bad reading would be from 36-75. 

We will use the old scale.  You do have the option to have your child kept indoors for breaks under the new guidelines as we will have break indoors and outdoors.  If you want your child kept inside under the new guidelines, please see the link.  This survey should be completed by April 6th.

 

Thank You,
