STUDENT OF THE MONTH: Congratulations, Dakota Canchola!

Students must be accompanied by an adult when attending high school athletic games.


 The flu (influenza) is widespread in California right now.  This year, the main flu strain is particularly nasty, and flu shots aren't much protection against it, though you might not get as sick if you have had one. 

The flu is primarily a serious respiratory infection.  It comes on rapidly and comes with fever, coughing, congestion, and other symptoms. People are typically pretty sick for a number of days.

If you do catch the flu, please do not come back to school too soon.  You are still contagious for 5-7 days afterward (children can be contagious longer), and can infect those around you. This is a serious illness, and we want to do our best to limit the spread. WASH YOUR HANDS a lot and cover all coughs and sneezes!




Pride Page Winners:


Congratulations: Ella Rockwell, Dalton Partridge, Mia Montes, Lilly Samson, Jessica Ahlstedt, Vanessa Rodriguez, Homar Rodriguez, Allison Brown, Madison Thomas, Noah Williams, Mr. Coit, Isabella Neylon, and Anna Popovich!
