Air Quality

We are on alert about air quality. We are monitoring the air quality on campus at least daily. We are developing and fine tuning procedures for days with unhealthy air quality. We are working on agreements to add air filtration to all of our classrooms.

On Wednesday, the air quality was in the red band according the AQI US measurements that are used in both the US and Taiwan. On that day, we instructed our teachers to keep the elementary students on the indoor recess schedules. We will continue to do this when the readings show orange or higher on our sensors on campus.

Typically, the air quality is a little bit better on campus than down in the city based upon the wonderful natural environment where our school is located. Additionally, our air conditioning systems do help reduce the amount of contaminants in the air, but we are not yet satisfied and we want to provide cleaner air for everyone on campus.

We will provide more information as we get the next pieces into place.

空氣品質

學校正持續密切注意校園空氣品質中,我們最近每天都至少記錄監測數據一次。我們也持續設定與調整因應不良空氣品質的對策。此外,我們還同時設法要讓每間教室內,都配置空氣清淨機。

這星期三,當我們監測到校園裡的空氣品質不論依美國或台灣的標準都達到紅色等級時,我們及時請老師們讓小學生都調整成上、下課時間只能在室內活動的措施。學校將繼續監測校園內的空氣品質,若測出結果達到橘色等級,就將進行同樣的配套措施。

雖然我們學校位於郊區,校園內的空氣品質通常要比市區內空氣品質好,加上空調系統也可以阻絕一些空氣汙染,但我們仍認為這樣還不夠,我們希望能在校園內為大家提供更好的空氣品質。

若有更進一步相關訊息,我們將會再公布讓您知道。
