Exciting news! Bailey Charter Elementary School has become an Idle Free School. This means that we are asking all parents and school visitors to NOT idle their vehicle when on or nearby our school campus.  Being Idle Free is important to you and most importantly, your children.


Engine idling creates air pollution which is especially bad for children because their lungs are still developing and they breathe faster than adults.  Breathing air pollution can aggravate asthma and even cause cancer.  Additionally, idling your engine increases car maintenance and wastes gas.  Idling your car for longer than 10 seconds costs more money than restarting your engine.


And lastly, idling your engine emits CO2 the greenhouse gas responsible for climate change.  Climate change means more heat waves, droughts, wildfires and smaller snowpack for all Nevadans. 


So, to do your part to help Bailey Charter Elementary School be an idle free campus, please turn off your engine whenever you’re on or nearby our school campus.


Turn your key and be idle free!


Idle Free Schools is collaboration between the Washoe County Health District Air Quality Management Division, Alliance for Climate Education, GREENevada and the Washoe County School District and our goal is to reduce idling at Washoe County Schools.
