Due to the unhealthy conditions associated with the air quality, Royal School District will be keeping students indoors today for recess, PE and other regularly scheduled outdoor activities.
Throughout the week, we will continue to monitor the Air Quality Index (AQI - web-site provided below) in order to determine whether activities will take place outdoors. As long as the AQI levels are at the “unhealthy” level, outdoor activities will either be moved indoors, re-scheduled or cancelled depending on the nature of the activity. We will also follow guidelines provided to us by the Grant County Health District.
As always please follow the recommendations of your health care provider should you have additional concerns.
Regular scheduled activities will resume when the air quality level drops below “unhealthy” as provided by the web-site listed below.
Athletics: The JV and C-Team football games for today have been postponed. The C-Team game has been rescheduled to Thursday with the location still to be determined based on air quality.
Athletic Director, Matt Tait is currently working on indoor practice schedules for this afternoon and will send out a notification on our web-site as well as our Facebook page.
For further information regarding athletics, please feel free to contact the athletic department.

On Monday, August 21st we will experience a solar eclipse. This is when the moon covers the sun. In our area we will experience over a 90% coverage of the sun. While this is an exciting event, it is also a time to be cautious.
The eclipse will begin a little after 9:00am and peak at 10:23am. It will end at approximately 11:45am. During the eclipse, looking directly at the sun can be dangerous without proper precautions such as wearing ISO certified eclipse glasses.
Please be extra cautious during this time and please be sure to educate those around you in order to avoid potential eye damage.
Athletic Director, Matt Tait will be sending out a message to coaches regarding student athletes who will be on campus during the time of the eclipse.
Below are some resources to help plan for safe viewing:
