When students return as part of the instructional hybrid model, they will be learning in classrooms featuring air purifiers with HEPA filters.
FCPS purchased 2,500 air purifiers, which will provide an additional mitigation element for students and staff.
The FCPS Maintenance and Operations Department received 10 tractor trailer loads of air purifiers and distributed them to schools in two days. Dedicated school custodians are placing them in classrooms.
Many in the community have asked questions regarding air filtration in FCPS schools. We have produced an informational video that explains how FCPS controls air quality and air flow in school buildings.
