Dear SMCCCD Community, 

San Mateo County is experiencing sustained unhealthy Air Quality Index (AQI) levels. Cañada College, College of San Mateo, Skyline College, and the District Office are closed today for day and evening in-person instruction and services.
All day and evening in-person classes are canceled today, Wednesday, September 20. All offices and in-person services are closed. Remote services and online instruction will continue as scheduled.  

A decision regarding operations tomorrow, Thursday, September 21, will be made by 6 pm this evening. 
SMCCCD Emergency Services relies on air quality data sources, including AirNow, PurpleAir, and IQ Air, to calculate an average reading and ensure accurate assessment.  

All essential employees scheduled to work on campuses or at the District Office today/tonight should still come to work. The campuses are still open, and office spaces are accessible. N95 respirators are recommended when working outdoors and are available at Public Safety. 

For all other employees scheduled to work on campus or at the District Office, today will be a remote workday. All meetings and appointments should be converted to virtual meetings if possible and appropriate. If you have questions about your work assignment, please contact your supervisor.
