What steps have we taken as a district to look into our ventilation systems?
- We are using several strategies recommended by the guidelines given to us by KDE in relation to our HVAC systems. To not only improve ventilation but also to help reduce virus and allergens in the air, we are monitoring the humidity level to maintain 50% or less. This can be achieved only with exterior doors and windows closed. Filters will be monitored more closely and changed more often. Heating and cooling systems will operate for longer periods of time before buildings are occupied each day to improve air flow.
- In order to maintain to 50% or less humidity level recommended by the KDE guidelines for proper ventilation, we will not open exterior doors and windows.
