RED TIDE INFORMATION

RED TIDE INFORMATION

Dear Brevard parent,

In response to “red tide” algae blooms off local beaches, Brevard Public Schools will be taking steps to protect the health of students and staff at our beachside schools.

As red tide blooms are patchy, some areas of Brevard’s coast will be impacted more than others.  As we are notified of impacted areas, Brevard Public School’s Environmental Health and Safety Office will work with the impacted schools’ principals to limit outside activities and temporarily close outside air ventilation if the problem becomes noticeable indoors.

We are also sharing with staff and families the following information about respiratory symptoms and recommended precautions from the Florida Department of Health:  https://tinyurl.com/y73popbs
