Air Quality Index Program

As many of you may notice we fly a colored flag in addition to the American flag and the North Carolina state flag. These flags are a part of the Air Quality Index Program that Randolph County Schools began to implement in May 2008. Each color corresponds to the air quality index. Please, note the following information for each color.

Green - air quality is good
Yellow - air quality is moderate
Orange - air quality is unhealthy for sensitive groups
Red - air quality is unhealthy
Purple - air quality is very unhealthy (alert)
