Fire Alarm Testing on 12/20
A note to our neighbors: We'll be doing some testing of our fire alarm system on
Saturday, December 20. The crew will be here from 8 am to 3:30 pm, so you may
hear intermittent alarm sounds throughout the day. We apologize for the
inconvenience, but it's for a good cause (safety first!).
Holiday Break, 12/19/14 - 1/4/15
Our two-week holiday break starts for students on Friday, December 19. We hope that students and families
will enjoy the break from school, and find time to rest, relax, and have some fun.
The 2nd semester will start on Monday, January 5, and we'll start with a "regular" week (7 periods on
Monday, odd block on Tuesday, etc.).
Every year, millions of children in the United States get enterovirus infections that can cause coughing,
sneezing, and fever. This year, children throughout the country have gotten sick with respiratory illnesses
caused by enterovirus D-68 (EV-D68). This is not a new virus, but it hasn’t been very common in the past.
However, this year, EV-D68 is the most common enterovirus that’s going around. For more information,
