Thank you to our members, for keeping students safe during these stressful days and for reaching out to UTLA — immediately and consistently — to share your serious concerns with air quality hazards. Your on-the-ground reports heightened awareness and gave weight to UTLA's call for the Air Quality Management District and other agencies to support LAUSD in this essential effort to limit exposure to the outdoors and protect student and educator health.
