You may have read the article in the IV Press on August 21st regarding the dust abatement pilot project on our McCabe grounds in an ongoing effort to protect our students from the respiratory effects of fine dust particles. The Imperial County Air Pollution Control District approved $147,127.85 for ground preparation, earthwork and spray application over 170,875 square feet of sensitive unpaved bus parking lots and unpaved alternative parking lot areas along the perimeter of the school.

This project will begin on Wednesday, September 11 forcing the closure of the South parking area and dirt road behind the McCabe campus. This email is to notify our parents and public that only surface streets and surfaced parking lots will be accessible from September 11th through September 27th while this project is underway.
We thank you in advance for your patience and support while we make every attempt to improve local air quality for the health of our McCabe students.
