*****AIR QUALITY ALERT ****
Thursday, August 23, 2018
Local air quality levels are Unhealthy for this morning Thursday, August 23, 2018. St. Mary's Academy soccer will move to the St. Mary's Academy gym today. Please check your Remind account from your coach for details.
Cross country athletes should check their Remind account for information from Coach Douglas regarding this afternoon's practice.
St. Mary's Academy Athletics Air Quality and Heat Index
As a member school of the Oregon Schools Activities Association (OSAA), St. Mary's Academy is required to follow their recommendation for student-athletes participating in activities impacted by both extreme heat and poor air quality.
The Weather Underground's heat index calculator recommends precautions necessary during conditions of extreme heat and humidity.
To determine the whether or not student-athletes need to modify or cancel outdoor activities due to poor air quality they require our coaches to follow their newly updated Air Quality Guidelines.
I work with the St. Mary's Academy athletic coaches to regularly monitor these conditions locally and will attempt to communicate at least an hour in advance of scheduled events when conditions warrant adjustments or cancellations. As well, we will work with opponent schools to determine the conditions at their venues to maintain a safe playing environment for all student-athletes.
Please make sure to join your sports team's Remind communication group in order to receive notices on these changes. We will also post these announcement here on the SMA Athletic Department Announcements webpage.
Thank you for your patience and flexibility adjusting to these changes.
