DANVILLE – The San Ramon Valley Unified School District announced Thursday that all middle and high school athletic activities (indoor and outdoor) are canceled until Monday, September 4th.
In a statement Thursday, the district said drift smoke from Butte County and Grass Valley fires has caused poor air quality across the area, prompting schools to move all P.E. classes indoors for the rest of the week.
The school district has also canceled athletic activities until next week. “To ensure the safety of our students, coaches, parents and community supporters, due to the extreme heat conditions and poor air quality, all indoor and outdoor SRVUSD middle and high school athletic activities, including all home, neutral and away practices and competitions, are cancelled starting today through Monday, September 4. This includes all CIF fall sports: cross country, tennis, football, water polo, golf and volleyball,” the district said Thursday.
The only exception to the directive is that coaches may meet with students indoors, as long as the meeting doesn’t involve physical activity, according to the district.
The directive has little impact on SRVUSD’s football schedule. The only district high school that was scheduled to play this week was Dougherty Valley vs. Berkeley.
Temperatures are predicted to reach 110 degrees across the San Ramon Valley tomorrow, then 108 degrees on Saturday.
