Hazardous AQI in Winter Season

As winter sets in, we would like to share how our school is monitoring outdoor AQI and reassurances about the indoor air quality (IAQ) within the building.

During the school day, the outdoor AQI is checked on-site, providing us with the most accurate record for our students. In addition, we use aqicn.org’s Licong District AQI monitor which is closest to our school site. If there’s discrepancy between those two monitors, we will always choose the highest AQI reading and conduct our school’s activities that day accordingly. As a reminder, please see the outdoor activities policy ISQ Air Quality Implications v1.1.pdf.

Inside our building is a built-in air filtration system that runs based on our indoor air quality (IAQ). This built-in air filtration system cleans our indoor air of hazardous materials such as PM 2.5 and PM 10. Each floor has key areas that our Operations Team routinely checks. Our built-in air filtration system is effective in maintaining healthy indoor AQI levels and a result our school will remain open when AQI levels are ‘Hazardous’.

If at any time you are concerned about high AQI levels in Qingdao, please provide your child with pollution face masks for the travel to and from school. Our filtration system will keep your child safe once they’re inside.
