We are monitoring the air quality in the Greater Victoria region. If it does not improve overnight, our schools in high smoke density areas will use strategies similar to a ‘Hold & Secure’. This includes keeping students indoors during recess/lunch breaks. https://t.co/MlmPIMpZ5V https://t.co/oP6huyR4hu
