Berkeley Unified School District schools and After-School Programs are remaining open Thursday, October 12. We have been monitoring conditions and forecasts, and have also been in touch with neighboring districts about their decisions.
There is a great deal of variation in conditions around the Bay, and districts in the more northern areas have made the decision to close, while districts in the central areas are remaining open. We will continue to keep students indoors as much as possible, keep windows closed, and continue to monitor the situation with the students’ health and safety in mind. We will continue to update the community until air quality returns to the “Good” assessment level.
