Air quality in the MBUSD area has been impacted by the Skirball Fire. At this time, the smoke is not creating dangerous air quality concerns for our area, but we are still taking actions to limit student exposure. The Air Quality Management District (AQMD) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have indicated that the current air quality for Manhattan Beach as “moderate,” however that may not reflect the latest smoke conditions in all areas. The District has advised schools that students should avoid vigorous exertion (indoor and outdoor) and limit outdoor exposure. People with respiratory or heart disease should remain indoors.
