Raise the Air Quality Flag
The Air Quality Flag Program will provide your school with its own page for reporting air quality. Your school page will tell you the AQHI reading each day. You get to determine which flag to raise and tell your school community what kind of air day it is!
Use the flag bearer schedule to assign individuals responsibility for raising the online flag and/or the on-site flag each day.
Note: Flag should be chosen once, daily, ideally in the morning.
Use the Air Quality Health Index scale to choose your school’s flag. The scale (pictured below) uses colours that correspond with the Air Quality Flags.
- Go to your schools’ flag page at airqualityflags.ca and raise the online and/or onsite flag – choose a student to raise the flag. We will provide you a special log in to navigate to your school’s page.
- Share a comment or answer a daily air quality and health question sent by the Air Quality Flag Program coordinator.
- Share what type of air day it is during your school’s morning announcements.
