MVLA, MVWSD schools to reopen Monday

Foothill College remains closed Monday due to poor air quality

School district officials reported Sunday evening that schools in the Mountain View Whisman School District and the Mountain View-Los Altos High School District will be open on Monday, Nov. 19. Schools throughout Mountain View and Los Altos were closed Friday due to unhealthy air quality caused by smoke drifting into the Bay Area from the Camp Fire in Butte County.

St. Francis, the private high school in Mountain View, will remain closed this week.

The Foothill-De Anza Community College District announced Sunday that Foothill College, De Anza College, the district office and its Sunnyvale Education Center will be closed Monday. The district also closed its campuses Friday because of the poor air quality. District officials announced Monday afternoon that Foothill and De Anza campuses will reopen on Tuesday, and that respirator masks will be offered to students and staff.

Air quality is expected to remain in the "unhealthy" range throughout most of the Bay Area until late Tuesday, before the expected rain arrives Wednesday or Thursday.

The entire Bay Area remains under a Spare the Air advisory, banning outdoor burning and discouraging driving as much as possible and use of lawnmowers and other engine-driven tools and other machines.
