The flu may make people cough and have a sore throat and fever. They may also have a runny or stuffy nose, feel tired, have body aches, or show other signs they are not well.

On Monday, September 24, 2018 during a Special Board meeting, the majority of the Board of Education directed staff to conduct a structural analysis of El Rancho High School facilities as a condition to move forward with the school redevelopment construction project. District staff are in the process of identifying the firm that will conduct the structural analysis of El Rancho High School so that the Board of Education can be provided a timeline of the analysis. The Superintendent, the staff, and the Board of Education are committed to fulfill the promise of providing all students with high quality educational facilities that reflect the kind of learning that will prepare students for academic and social success.
Many schools in Los Angeles County are reporting big problems with aggressive, day-biting Aedes mosquitoes. These mosquitoes are the primary transmitters of Zika, dengue, and other significant viruses. While we currently have no indication of illness in California, we still need to be diligent to reduce risk.
These mosquitoes can live and complete their life cycle either indoors or outdoors. Eggs are laid along the waterline of any water-holding container such as flower vases, plant saucers, buckets, used tires, and even plants that hold water like bamboo. Eggs can remain alive for years, and hatch into larvae when conditions are right.
How to Stay Mosquito Free:
• Remove or drill holes in the bottom of all plant pots, saucers, barrels, bins, and old tires.
• Do not keep water in buckets or root plant cuttings in water. Sharing plant cuttings can spread mosquito eggs.
• Cover trashcans, toys and recycle bins, and keep unneeded items out of the rain.
• Ensure rain barrels are properly sealed since mosquitoes can lay thousands of eggs inside them.
• Wear insect repellant containing DEET, Picaridin, IR 3535 or oil of lemon eucalyptus.
