BE AWARE OF THESE DANGEROUS GAMES

A student in our community was hospitalized after engaging in what is known among students as “the eraser challenge” or sometimes called 'the scratching game'.  As this rather innocuous sounding game resulted in a serious illness, we want all parents to be aware of some of the dangerous games which have gained popularity both online and in communities across the nation. 

Please read this article from Webmd.com, which summarizes five of these “games” to make yourself aware of the details. 

We encourage all parents to have discussions with their children about these and other activities in which students could inadvertently put themselves or others in danger.

If you have any questions regarding this matter, contact CJHS Principal, Pedro Caldera by phone at 891-3066 or email Mr. Caldera.

IMPORTANT PARENT INFORMATION

If your student will be absent from school for five or more day, please give at least 3 days notice to the attendance office. This will ensure there is adequate time to provide your student with their assignments.
----------------
California State law requires that all incoming 7th grade students get a Pertussis booster shot, called the Tdap booster, before starting junior high. Students who have not received this shot prior to the beginning of the upcoming school year on August 18, 2016, will not be allowed to start junior high.
