River Bluff High School students check the Air Quality Index at airnow.gov every morning and usually celebrate good air quality by raising a green flag. However, on December 1st the students raised a red flag as an alert that the air quality was unhealthy for people to be outside for long periods of time. Kudos to students across the state who are monitoring and educating about air quality in their communities.
