We love clean air and our children do too.
Debra Lee Music School is a CLEAN AIR SCHOOL.  But what does that mean?

Big Picture

At our school we have
Eliminated use of all major fossil fuels / burning including: gasoline, motor oil, household heating oil, methane gas (marketed as natural gas), coal.  Even  nuclear.  That makes us a Zero CO2 Emission school.
The school gets all its electric power from Wind and Solar through Ethical Electric.  You can too, it is an opt-in program available to everyone just sign up though Ethical Electric and you'll see the change on your electric bill.
Why Should We Care?
Burning of fossil fuel is harmful to your health and the health of your children.  The studies are many and conclusive.  Your students will do better on the clean air their bodies were designed for, rather than on air polluted by gas or desel cars, busses, jets or coal fired power plants.   This is one big reason why the school drives a 100% zero emission electric vehicle(s)  So think twice, does your music teacher drive a toxic gas car?
When we pull up any place, school, a traffic light, a parking lot - at church where ever - our car has no gas engine and  does not emit pollution in the faces of those we love and or teach.  We encourage you to lead by example and get rid of your gas car today.  EVs are the same cost as any car in there class to purchase, inexpensive to lease and operate and they charge on the sun or wind right at your home.  No more trips to stinky gas stations.  Everyone hates going there anyway.
Burning gas, methane or coal, is a chemical reaction that produces toxic gases.  You can't breath that stuff it will reduce your quality of life - like it will kill you.  Toxic is bad enough, but the majority of gases coming out the tail pipe also heat up the atmosphere.  They are doing what they are designed to do naturally, except that now over 1 billion cars worldwide are pumping about 38% of the CO2 greenhouse warming  gas into the air.  This is way out of whack - and it is having an effect.   So much so that this summer was the hottest on record worldwide and the 350th plus month of higher than average temperatures. 
If you want to do something great, if your really love your kids, do something about this right now.  We will be happy to share our knowledge with you.  After all you are part of our family.

No Idling Campaign | Healthier Schools.

Earth Day Network’s No Idling Campaign, in partnership with the Clean Air Campaign, Inc., aims to reduce harmful vehicle emissions around children and instill environmental values in the next generation through a targeted focus on reducing vehicle idling at K-12 schools across the country. Entire school communities are motivated to be a part of the solution through action-oriented projects and classroom lessons.

Stop IdlingThe purpose of the No Idling Campaign is to reduce pollution from idling buses and cars that negatively affect a child’s healthy lung growth and development. Earth Day Network has partnered with the Clean Air Campaign, Inc. to take their success in impacting at least 220,000 people in the state of Georgia to a national level. This campaign provides solutions through toolkits for administrators and teachers, and collateral and educational materials for bus drivers and parent drivers.

The need for action is clear: excessive idling unnecessarily exposes vulnerable populations of children and adults to unhealthy plumes of exhaust filled with particle pollution. Airborne particles can cause nasal, throat, respiratory, and eye problems, and are particularly harmful to those with asthma.

Children are more vulnerable to the impacts of vehicle pollution than other populations:

bulletTheir lungs are still in the development phase.
bulletThey breathe, on average, 50 percent more air per pound of body weight than adults.
bulletThey are closer to the ground; therefore, closer to tailpipes.

The World Health Organization found that particle pollution and ground level ozone aggravated asthma in children and contributed to an increased risk of respiratory tract infection as well.
