The intensity of seismicity remained the same as the pre- vious week with four M 2s. The distribution favored the central part of the region, including Lake Almanor, Lassen Peak and the foothills to the west. The most notable activity occurred at Lake Almanor where five earthquakes were recorded., including three in the M 2 range. Two quakes measured as strong as M 2.3, one at 7:53 p.m. Sunday, Febru- ary 23, about 200 yards east of the southern tip of the Lake Almanor Penin- sula, and the other 3:46 a.m. Saturday morning on the volcanic plains west of the West Shore Community. A M 2.0 jolt occurred northwest of Quincy in the Burton Creek drainage. Two of the four quakes recorded at Lassen Peak measured M 1.9. All four quakes occurred during a brief fourhour period early Monday morning. Talent Show QES has talent! Students performed for the student body on Wednesday, 2/26/14 and for parents and the community in the evening. A variety of singing, dancing, writing and performances were displayed. Thank you to Mrs. Lemnah for organizing and supporting our students for this performance. School Safety- Perimeter Gates As we continue to reflect on our efforts to make our students and staff as safe as possible at school, we will begin locking the perimeter gates between 8:30-2:30. This will help to ensure all visitors enter our school through the main doorway. Thank you to the many volunteers and visitors who are already signing in at the main office. It is important for us to know who is on our campus at all times.

Grades will be available to view in your Parent Portal account by Thursday, March 6. We will also send home a hard copy of this report. Progress Report grades (D's, F's and rs) are designed to alert students and parents to potential failing or near failing grades allowing time for improvement before the end of the 3rd quarter, March 28, 2014. We hope parents will remain vigilant to this important grading period. Also, a reminder for students and parents: Please remember ifa student arrives late to school, any period, he/she must check-in with the attendance office. If a student leaves campus, for any reason other than senior high lunch, the student must check-out with the attendance office. We are responsible for reporting accurate numbers to the state, so your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
