School Closed Friday, December 8

 
Dear Parents,
 
In an abundance of caution and with the health and safety of our students and staff in mind, we will remain closed tomorrow, Friday, December 8th.
 
This decision was not made randomly. Various factors were considered in our decision including:
 
*Continued unhealthy air quality expected tomorrow
*High winds predicted up to 80 mph gusts in our area
*Extremely high wildfire threat (“Purple” danger level – never used before)
*Neighboring LAUSD schools will also be closed along with some private schools in the area
*Containment of the nearby Skirball Fire is at 5%, with expectation that this could grow overnight.
 
Ken Pimlott, director of the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection says this is the worst Santa Ana wind conditions the state has ever seen. “The purple danger color means there is extreme danger and that fires that erupt will burn uncontrollably,” Pimlott said.
 
Student athletes should check in with Coach Suren as we have games scheduled in the gym tomorrow afternoon and evening against AGBU Pasadena.
 
Thank you for your attention,
School Administration
