How Can I Help? Parents' Role
in Ensuring Indoor Air Quality
Parents are also asked to contribute to the indoor air quality of their children's' schools. Such simple things as notifying the school Nurse or Principal of respiratory or allergic conditions that may affect your children can do this. That information could be useful in helping to determine what type of items can be brought into the classroom.
Furthermore, parents can contribute to good indoor air quality within a school by turning off their car's engine while waiting to pick up children at school. Idling a car outside of the school may actually contribute to carbon monoxide and odors being transported into the building by way of the ventilation system.
