[1]Clean air in the classroom, cafeteria and gym is a must for all children to learn and have fun at school. AANMA is a co-sponsor with Healthy Schools Network [2] to help parents, teachers and students transform their schools into breathe-easy zones! Healthy Schools Network coordinates National Healthy Schools Day each year in cooperation with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) [3].

Get in on the action! Here’s what you can do locally right now:

-Does your school have an IAQ (indoor air quality) program or committee? See www.NationalHealthySchoolsDay.org [1] for how to celebrate IAQ successes or help create a new program to make sure students have breathable indoor air all school-year long.

-Need more help? Find ideas for activities, learning tools, conference call sign ups, and more at www.NationalHealthySchoolsDay.org [1] — register and share what activities you have planned.

-Register [4] your activity online today online to put Your School IAQ on the Map!  

-Download AANMA’s FREE Indoor AIRepair: At School kit [5] — a colorful guide to reducing irritants and allergens at your school. Created by AANMA with funding from the EPA.
