  • If your child is staying home from school, please telephone the school at 423-1200 IN THE MORNING ON THE DAY OF THE ABSENCE. For your convenience, there is a 24-hour voicemail on which messages can be left. Any absences that are not reported by a parent or guardian will be recorded as an unexcused absence in the student’s permanent record.




Fall Picture Day


Dear Principal, Teachers and Parents,


Walden West Outdoor School will modify daily activities when necessary to compensate for poor air quality days. We closely monitor the Air Quality Index (AQI). Activities that are normally in outdoor areas may be moved indoors, we take frequent breaks and other activities will be modified to be less vigorous to limit physical activity. We monitor students who are sensitive to air pollution and take action as needed.


Please see the attached health advisory regarding the current air quality situation here in the Bay Area. We have received a number of phone calls from families regarding the smoke, and have been directing parents back to their school districts for information, announcements, and school closures.


Here are a few other resources you might find helpful:


I hope this helps! I know we have received lots of calls regarding the smoke.


Kindest Regards,


Marie Bobias Bacher

Director, Environmental Education
