Kids in Beijing won't be going outside for recess because of China's ongoing smog problem, even though the China Meteorological Administration issued a slightly less severe smog warning Sunday than the one a few days ago.
In Beijing, the Commission of Education announced Sunday that outdoor activities should be suspended for most of the week.
According to China's state-run news agency Xinhua, some schools gave students the option to study at home through an online program instead of going to school.
