Sutter Middle School's open house: Effects of education cuts

Sutter Middle School's open house: Effects of education cuts

Sutter Middle School parents and students will host an open house at 6:30 p.m. tonight at 3150 I Street, 95816 to show the community what Sacramento schools are likely to look like if the Legislature fails to address California’s $26 billion budget deficit. 

Forty desks crammed into a classroom? Sports banners showing championships never won? Disappearing teachers?

Governor Jerry Brown has said that if the Legislature will not agree to put the tax extensions on the ballot, he will move to an “all cuts” budget, triggering massive school layoffs, and a loss of programs such as sports, summer school and bus transportation.

Sutter parents and students are very concerned about the looming cuts and have developed tonight’s unique open house for the community to help put a bigger spotlight on the problem.

CA experiencing increased flu activity

The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) reports overall influenza activity is on the increase and cases are now present in both Southern California and Northern California. 

“Flu has the potential to cause serious illness and even death,” said CDPH Director Dr. Mark Horton. “But there is something people can do about it. I urge all Californians to get a flu shot and take other preventive measures to reduce exposure to influenza.”

This year CDPH is recommending flu vaccine for everyone six months of age and older. Vaccine is plentiful and available throughout the state.

To stop the spread of flu and other respiratory illnesses, Californians should:
• Stay home when sick. Limiting contact limits the spread of disease.
• Cover your cough or sneeze.
