The Utah Recess Guidance is a tool for determining when to hold recess indoors due to poor air quality. The Guidance provides recommendations for recess based off PM2.5 levels reported by the Department of Environmental Quality.
We encourage schools in these counties to use the Recess Guidance and DEQ website to determine recess. Ultimately, the final decision on when to hold indoor recess is made by the schools. Below are some steps for implementing the Recess Guidance. Find more school resources here.
