Air Quality Control Monitoring and School Procedures
TES monitors the air quality every morning and has a policy to protect our children from the potential harms of poor air.
Each morning, the nursing unit of EPC and ESC check the Environmental Protection Administration Executive Yuan Website’s Taiwan Air Quality Monitoring Network, to evaluate the air quality for the coming day.
Depends on the published level of AQI (Air Quality Index), the school will react with the following procedures:
|GREEN||Good air quality||no action required|
|YELLOW||Moderate air quality||no action required|
|ORANGE||Unhealthy for sensitive groups||poor air quality alert is sent to teaching staff, and sensitive children with asthma or other respiratory issues may sit out of physical activities taking place outdoors|
|RED||Unhealthy||outside break cancelled; outside PE relocated inside and outside ECAs relocated inside or postponed/cancelled|
|PURPLE||Very unhealthy||all outdoor activities cancelled|
|MAUVE||Hazardous||all outdoor activities cancelled|
