MCPS released the following community message on Wednesday evening:
“Dear MCPS Community,
Due to unhealthy air conditions as a result of wildfires in Canada, all outdoor recess will be canceled for Thursday, June 8.
Athletics will operate under guidelines similar to heat index warnings, which include primarily indoor activities and increased monitoring of athletes. Field trips may need to be rescheduled or modified depending on the location and extent of outdoor activity. Adjustments could be made to outdoor graduations and will be communicated by individual schools.
Any modifications to this guidance will be communicated as conditions continue to be monitored.
