The intensity of seismicity remained elevated, producing five quakes in the M 2 range. No M3s were recorded. It was a shotgun distri- bution of activity. The largest quake measured M 2.7 and occurred at 1:02 p.m. Thursday, September tl, five miles north of Sparks in Spanish Springs Valley. It was accompanied by four other events, including a M 2.3 later Thurs- day evening. It is likely the largest events were felt. The earthquake swarm in Northern Washoe County continued for the ninth straight week. Hundreds of quakes have been detected, several of Which have been in the M 3 range. The activity is centered about 15 miles south of the Idaho border in Long Valley. It is likely the activity is relat- ed to geothermal process. The largest of five quakes at Lake Almanor measured M 2.4. It occurred at 12:40 a.m. between the West Shore commu- nity and the Peninsula. Redkey and Holm wed at Bucks Lake An outdoor shoreline wedding at Bucks Lake was the site of the marriage of Kylie Redkey and Mogie Holm, both of Boise, Idaho, on July 19.

Smoke Advisory When there is a threat of dangerous air quality, we are in contact with Plumas County Public Health. Air quality can change rapidly throughout the day. When particulate matter in the air is at dangerous levels, we are notified and take precautions such as avoiding heavy exertion outside or remaining indoors. Students with respiratory illnesses are free to come to the office anytime if needed. If your child has a special need, please communicate with us so that we can keep all of our students safe. Bully/Harassment/Intimidation Reporting Form QES has implemented a new bully/harassment/intimidation form. Copies were sent home on the first day of school, and are available in the office, if your child is experiencing these behaviors, please fill out this form to document these behaviors and turn in to the school office. Performing Arts at QES With the change in the time for our music program from last year, I'm pleased to share that our numbers have greatly increased and many students are participating in the music program, if your child in 4th-6th grade would like to play an instrument, it's not too late. Please contact Mr. Barnes at Also, Johny McDonald will be leading a strings class on Tuesdays after school here at QES. Sign up forms are available in the office. We have also made a change to our chorus program to allow all kids in 4th and 5th exposure to vocal music. Students in Mrs. Lemnah, Ms. C and Mrs. Hollister will rotate through four week sessions, each Monday. Sixth grade students in choir are invited to attend with the 5th grade session. Graduation Caps & Gowns If you have a cap & gown from QHS that you would like to donate please send them to the QHS office. Parents and Guardians, Please know that anytime your student arrives after the 6:10am morning bell, they must check in with the attendance office to obtain a pass to class, whether excused or tardy. Any student leaving school before the final afternoon bell, with the exception of senior high lunch, must obtain an off-campus pass. Failure to do so may result in a truancy. Our "School Messenger" service will call you daily, after 6:00 pm to resolve any absences reported during the day, from one to seven periods. If the absence is not cleared, the "School Messenger" will continue to call until you respond. This service is not designed to separate old absences from new, so your prompt response is requested. Any uncleared absences default to unexcused by Tuesday for the previous week. Three unexcused absences will result in a "Student Attendance Review Board" letter. If you have questions or concerns regarding your student's attendance, please contact Ms. Radtke at 283-6510, ext 5153. Thanks for your cooperation and assisting us to "do the right .thing" for all students at Quincy Junior/Senior High School.
