:2A 'Wednesday, March 31,2010 Feather River Bulletin Regarding non-emergency messages There has been an influx of non-emergency type messages received at the office lately. We are not able to continue the service of taking messages, tracking down the student and de- livering these types of messages. We suggest the following guidelines: If your student needs to leave school during the day, please send them to school with a note explaining, in detail, what time they need to leave, when they will return (or not), and the reason for the absence. They are then responsible for ob- taining their own off-campus pass before school starts. If you have undecided issues about appointments, rides or personal requests, please ask your student to call you during nutrition or lunch break to get the information they need. We can no longer deliver messages regarding non-emergency issues. Please note, any student leaving campus for any reason must have an off-campus pass or they will receive a cut. This not only an attendance issue, but one of student safety and school liability. Our office works shortened hours and is extremely understaffed, so your cooperation is greatly appreciated. Thank You! Quincy High Has AVID: Advancement Via Individual Determination AVID is an academic elective class for students who have an university degree as their goal.

Sierra West End Education- al Theatre or SWEET is a group of Plumas County young people learning to be peer health educators. Sex::Tech is an annual con- ference put on by ISIS, a non- profit that develops technolo- gy for promotion of sexual transmission. Its mission is to provide leadership, innova- tion, educational resources and research in online sexual health promotion. For the local youth, 15 - 20, this was an amazing op- portunity. Many of these young people had never been to San Francisco. Be- sides attending the confer- cabs; rode the cable car; went to Fisherman's Wharf and so much more. The SWEET youth had the opportunity to meet and in- teract with youth from a similar group in Berkeley called PASSHEN. The PASSHEN group works at Berkeley High School and provides a two-day course in physiology, as well as games and activities to make learn- ing health-related facts fun. There, ninth-grade students learn about STDs, HIV and birth control from PASSHEN educators. SWEET members also at- tended sessions on all sorts of technology and how to utilize Facebook, MySpace and Twit- health and healthy relation- ence they ate in wonderful sexual health information ter, among others, to promote I ships, and to prevent disease restaurants; rode in taxi that includes anatomy and healthy behaviors by youth.
