Thursday, October 30th from 2:45pm-5:00pm is the Annual PTC Fall Festival. Tania Fisher and her team put together a carnival with food, games, treats, face painting, and much more. Don't miss the silent auction and a chance to visit with other Clear Creek parents and children. The Fall Festival is fun for the whole family!

the recent poor air quality in Nevada County due to the King Fire, I wanted to
let you know the procedures in place at the school for how decisions are made
in regards to student safety. When smoky
air reaches our area the Nevada County Health Department updates us twice daily
on particulate matter in the air. In the
case of really bad air days, we also hold conference calls with all the school
districts and the Health Department. The
Health Department also makes recommendations to us regarding indoor or outdoor
recess and afterschool sports activities. These guidelines are followed by all school districts in the
county. The simplified version
is if we can smell smoke, the kids stay indoors until it clears. The Health Department also recommended that
we stay open even when the air quality is extremely poor because most schools
have central heating and air conditioning and that could provide better air
than some homes without those features. Hopefully, we are past the really bad air days. Last week saw some of the worst conditions in
Nevada County since air quality was measured.
If you have any questions about this,
please give me a call at the school office.
