As of today, May 10, 2017, we want to share with you the latest information regarding the Norovirus (stomach flu) from the Yolo County Public Health Department. The virus has indeed reached each of our schools in West Sacramento and it’s important that our community work together taking precautions to limit spread.


Attendance rates across our entire school district are normal for this time of year and in fact, well above 90% for ALL schools in WUSD. While we do have students and adults absent with virus-like symptoms, we are taking every precaution to ensure the spread is limited.  

 

WHAT WE ARE DOING

  • Children or adults on campus with symptoms are being sent home immediately.
  • DO NOT wait for confirmation of the Norovirus—anyone with virus-like symptoms must remain home and follow the same precautions.
  • PLEASE NOTE: Children and adults must be symptom-free for 48 hours before returning to school. 
  • If your symptoms go away in 2 days, you need to wait an additional 2 days before returning to school.
  • WHY? The Norovirus remains active in the human body even after symptoms go away—48 hours is needed to ensure the virus is not still active.
  • ALL schools are being thoroughly cleaned and disinfected daily.

WHAT YOU CAN DO

  • Raise awareness and practice good habits! 
  • Wash hands regularly using soap and water
  • Clean all areas that have come in contact with a sick student or adult.
  • Notify your school and tell them your child’s symptoms.
  • Consult with your doctor for any questions and let them know that other students at your child’s school have these symptoms.
  • Stay hydrated! Fluid is lost in diarrhea and vomiting. Make sure you and your child is able to drink fluids.

Dear WUSD Parents, Guardians and Families,

As many of you may already be aware, the Sacramento region and now Yolo County are encountering a gastrointestinal illness (GI) outbreak, more commonly known as the stomach flu. The most common cause of widespread GI illness is Norovirus however, the organism causing the present outbreak is unknown at this time. The Yolo County Public Health Department is working diligently to identify the organism.

The virus has indeed reached our schools in West Sacramento but is not currently widespread as in other areas of our region. We have about 15 instances being reported of students and/or adults feeling the symptoms of the stomach virus. Common symptoms include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and stomach cramps, and can last for 1-3 days. 
What should parents do? 

  • If you or your child develops these symptoms, keep them at home until they are no longer vomiting, experiencing diarrhea and/or fever and nausea. They must be free of symptoms for 48 hours.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after contact with vomit or stool. Hand sanitizer can be used if no water is around. However, it is not a replacement for using soap and water.
  • Clean all areas that have come in contact with diarrhea or vomit. Use a ten percent bleach solution (5 teaspoons to one cup of water) or a disinfectant that kills viruses.
  • Notify the school and tell them your symptoms.
  • Consult with your doctor and let them know that other students at your child’s school have these symptoms. The doctor may want to take a sample of your child’s stool.
  • Contact the school if you have more questions.
  • Fluid is lost in diarrhea and vomiting. Make sure your child is able to drink fluids. If your child becomes weak or is unable to drink fluids, seek medical care.

Cap Decoration Instructions 

Students MAY decorate their caps for the graduation ceremony.  Graduates may decorate the TOP of their cap only.  Decorations may not contain crude or offensive language, gestures, pictures or illustrations.

The River City Mock Trial team finished local competition Wednesday night with its best record in over 20 years by defeating St. Francis High School in the final preliminary round of the Sacramento County tournament. The defense side's victory gave the team a 3-1 overall record, defeating Laguna Creek High School in a prosecution win and John F. Kennedy High School in a defense opening round. The only loss came to the prosecution side in a narrow margin, losing to Jesuit by .37%.

Students were awarded MVP honors at the end each round. Seniors Liam Stack, Ivy Tillich, Trhemson Desean-Concepcion and Taher Rhuma were recognized with round MVPs.


The team consisted of Ivy Tillich, Alexis Villanueva, Trhemson Desean-Concepcion, Liam Stack, Tatiana Nikolaeva, Andrew Rice, Hal Jourdan, Alexis Tellez, Kalim Salim, Patrick Bibica, Taher Rhuma, Hunter Cradit, Jesus Tellez, and Yulissa Magallanes.

The team had hopes of facing another Yolo County school for the first time in 10 years, but a young Davis High team dropped out of the tournament after the first round. River City remains the default Yolo County champion, and does not advance in the Sacramento County tournament playoff rounds. The Raiders did not enter in the state tournament this year, but have applied to compete in the inaugural Golden State Mock Trial invitational tournament featuring some of the elite teams in the state in Sacramento in April.

By Raider Reporters - The girls’ varsity soccer team finished their season a game early, having their last game against River Valley HS cancelled due to the danger of flooding posed in recent days in communities downstream of the Oroville dam.

   The Raiders had another strong season with a record of 16-6-2, 7-3-1 in TCC conference play, sending the team into the playoffs. The game is scheduled for the 22nd with their opponent still to be determined.

   Coach Kamal Singh credits the hard work of the players for their success, a tight-knit group that has learned to play collectively as a sisterhood.

   “I’m proud of how much this team has accomplished in a short period of time,” said Singh.

   Team chemistry led to an impressive 106-29 goal scoring differential for the season.

   “Our greatest strength is is our speed as a whole and our team bonding,” said senior Itzel Geronimo.

   Junior defender Catalina Avalos also feels this team has speed and works together adding, “I love when we play with heart.”

   Attacking with heart is what junior forward Sydney Schultz has done all season, putting pressure on the opposing defense that led to 49 goals and 12 assists.

   “We play as one unit, we respect each other and we share our goals for this season,” said Schultz.

   The JROTC programs (Air Force, Army, Navy, Marine Corps) incorporate awards programs that mirror the US military, where members can earn ribbons, medals, and badges that they wear on their uniforms.  This provides visible recognition of achievements, as well as allows commanders at a glance to see who has experience in what areas and who are their best troops.

 

   There are 61 different ribbons the cadets can earn (see attached chart).  We have a cadet guide that explains the criteria for each one.  Most are awarded at the unit level (by the school JROTC instructor), but some come from the JROTC headquarters or outside patriotic organizations.  Attached is a spreadsheet we use to track the awards RCHS cadets have earned – the number in a cell represents how many times that cadet has earned that particular award.  When someone earns an award a second/third/ect time then they get to put a metal device on the ribbon (usually a star or oak leaf).  The farther to the right in the spreadsheet, the more important the award.  The last column are awards sponsored by private organizations.

 

   The more common awards are:

 

   Dress and Appearance – A’s on all uniform inspections

   Attendance – no more than 3 absences, no Unexcused

   Good Conduct – no detentions, no cell phones to office, no reported classroom disruptions, etc.

   Academic – A in AFJROTC, and 3.0 term GPA

   Color Guard – present flags at events

   Activities – participate in multi-school JROTC events

   Patriot Flag – participate in a ceremony honoring the US flag (9/11 Display on Southport, old US flag disposal)

   Longevity – pass an AFJROTC class

   Health and Wellness – pass the Physical Fitness Test

   Leadership School – attend the summer program

  

   Badges can be earned for academics (3.3 GPA), Rocketry, Awareness Presentation Team, and Flight solo wings. Ropes (warn on shoulders) can be earned for Color Guard, Drill Team, and the winner of the last uniform inspection.

Morning,

 

Rugby season is just around the corner; the boy’s and girl’s rugby teams are hosting a 7’s scrimmage (touch) this Sunday, October 16th from 930-11 am on the back fields. This will be a friendly game intended to help new recruits become familiar with the game. We are putting flyers up around school, but if you could print one off and post it in your room I would greatly appreciate it. If you know of anyone that is interested in playing please encourage them to come out this Sunday and just check it out. I particularly want freshman and sophomores (since I would love to have a dedicated JV side).

 

Thanks for the support,

Dear Washington Unified Families and Staff,

We want to make you aware that the Washington Unified School District (WUSD) has been monitoring the recent online situation where characters dressed as clowns are making threatening social media posts aimed at educational institutions nationwide.

The District is aware that some of these posts are being seen and/or received by individuals in our community and we have been actively working with the West Sacramento Police Department to investigate. As such, it is very important to take note that there is no immediate or credible threat to our schools and community. These threats are being circulated on a nationwide basis and are not specific to WUSD or West Sacramento. 

We do not, however, take these threats lightly and will continue monitoring social media in order to advise law enforcement of these posts and ensure that they are included in the investigation. We would also like to encourage you to engage in open dialogue with your children about the seriousness of this type of behavior. 

Be proactive and extremely vigilant of strange behavior in the community as well as information being circulated online. In this age of technology, we all have access to an abundance of information on the internet, and it is important that we have conversations with our children about questioning that information, where it comes from and the manner in which it is delivered.  

The safety of our students and staff is always our top priority. If you witness any suspicious activity, in or around a school site, please contact your local school and school principal. We will continue to keep you updated with any developments regarding this situation. 

Sincerely yours,

Linda C. Luna

Superintendent

Washington Unified School District

On Sept 22 Yolo County District Attorney’s office will conduct a live DUI trial on campus.  Our hope is that by witnessing such an event our students will learn about the dangers and consequences of driving under the influence.  Every year, families across America live though very tragic events involved with driving under the influence.    We hope this experience will make our students aware of those dangers and discourage them from such behavior.

Effective July 1, 2016, students entering kindergarten or 7th grade (known as “vaccination checkpoints”) must be vaccinated and can no longer rely on a personal belief exemption (“PBE”).  Students who have a PBE may be “grandfathered in” if they are not entering kindergarten or 7th grade.  However, once a student rises to the 7th grade, that PBE will no longer be accepted.  There are generally two exceptions to the vaccination requirement: (1) obtaining a medical waiver from a doctor or (2) enrolling the student in independent study or homeschool (non-classroom based instruction).  Districts should ensure that students entering kindergarten or 7th grade on or after July 1 show proof of current vaccinations. 

 

However, the law does not prohibit students from accessing special education or related services required by their individualized education program.  Some school districts have constructively exempted special education students from the vaccination requirement since the districts are legally mandated to provide services to students who qualify for special education and related services, and failure to do so could leave the district open to legal challenge.  However, other districts have insisted all students, including those receiving special education services, be vaccinated. The State or CDE has yet to clarify the intent of SB 277 regarding students receiving special education services.

 

Should you have any follow-up questions or comments on this information, please feel free to contact either our Southern California office at (714) 573-0900 or our Northern California office at (916) 245-8677 or visit our website at www.parkercovert.com.
