Nooksack Valley High School Drama Department Announces Auditions
Audition Announcement: We will be having auditions for our fall musical, "Damn Yankees"on August 25th at 3:30 pm. and August 26th at 3:30 pm. Bring a song to sing or a monologue to perform or both. If necessary call backs will be held Wed. August 27th at 2:45. In the NVHS performing arts center. For all those wondering we were planning on performing "West Side Story" but after careful consideration I believe that "Damn Yankees" if a better fit for our talents this year. This is a dance heavy show with a lot of fun characters. Short Synopsis

:Damn Yankees

Book by George Abbott and Douglass Wallop 
Music and Lyrics by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross 
Based on the novel The Year The Yankees Lost The Pennant by Douglass Wallop 

Two Acts, Book Musical, Rated G 
Original Broadway Version (1955) 

Faust meets professional baseball in the Broadway send-up of love and the American pastime.

Based on the novel "The Year The Yankees Lost The Pennant" by Douglass Wallop, DAMN YANKEES the Broadway mega-hit and winner of 7 Tony Awards including Best Musical hits it out of the park! The winning score by Adler and Ross and a devilish book by George Abbot have made this sporty musical comedy a true American classic.

Middle-aged baseball fanatic Joe Boyd trades his soul to the Devil, also known as Mr. Applegate, for a chance to lead his favorite team to victory in the pennant race against the New York Yankees. As young baseball sensation Joe Hardy, he transforms the hapless Washington Senators into a winning team, only to realize the true worth of the life he's left behind. Joe ultimately outsmarts Applegate, returns to his former self, and shepherds the Senators to the World Series.
Light, fast-paced and devilishly clever, DAMN YANKEES is a home-run hit featuring all-American subject matter and an irreverent sense of humor. The perfect choice for a high school's spring musical or community theatre production, DAMN YANKEES is sure to please.

 Measles Reported in Our Community

there has been a confirmed case of measles in a child, who is not enrolled in Nooksack schools, but lives in the community.  The health department has asked that we review immunization records of students and staff.  The attached letter will be sent home with students today.  Please check your own immunization status. Here it is first in English and then in Spanish.
 

Dear Parent or Guardian,

An unimmunized child in Whatcom County tested positive for measles this month after being exposed to the virus at a private school in Canada. There is currently an outbreak of measles in the Fraser Valley of British Columbia which is located just north of the border. As of March 26, 2014 British Columbia Health Officials reported 237 confirmed cases of measles. The majority of the cases are related to a private school that has a very high number of unvaccinated children.

 General information:

  • Measles is a highly contagious disease that is transmitted by respiratory droplets and airborne spread.
  • Symptoms include rash, fever, cough, runny nose, and conjunctivitis (red and inflamed eye).
  • The disease can result in severe complications, including pneumonia and encephalitis (inflammation of the brain and spinal cord).

·         Measles cases are contagious 1-2 days before onset of symptoms (typically 4-5 days before rash onset) through 4 days after rash onset.

·         The incubation period of measles, from exposure to onset of symptoms is 7-21 days.

 What you should do if you become sick:

·         Avoid contact with others.

·         See your primary care provider.If you do not have a regular health care provider, go to a hospital emergency room or urgent care clinic.Contact your health care provider, emergency room, or urgent care clinic before going in for evaluation so arrangements can be made to have you evaluated without exposing other patients.

What you should do to prevent measles:

·         Get vaccinated. More than 99% of people who receive two doses of measles vaccine (with the first dose administered no earlier than the first birthday) develop immunity to measles.

·         Avoid contact. If you know someone who is ill with a fever and rash, stay away from them unless you know you are immune to the measles virus.

If you or your child become exposed to measles and you cannot prove immunity (documentation of having had measles, blood test showing immunity, or proof of two vaccinations) be aware that you or your child will be excluded from school, work or other public settings for up to 21 days, following exposure. This action is necessary to prevent spread to other residents in our community.

 If you know that your child is unvaccinated and you do not plan to vaccinate for measles, please consider making provisions for their in-home care for the duration of the exclusion. It is very important that others are not exposed during this time period.

 For questions, contact your health care provider or the Whatcom County Health Department.

 Spanish Version
 Marzo 28, 2014

 Estimado Padre o Guardián,

Un niño(a) sin historia de inmunizacionesque reside en el Condado de Whatcom, ha resultadopositivopara el test de Sarampióndespués de habersidoexpuesto a este virus en unaescuelaprivada en Canada. En estemomento hay un brote de sarampión en el Fraser Valley en la Provincia de British Columbia, la cualesta al Norte de nuestrafrontera. Para Marzo26, 2014 lasautoridades de salud de British Columbia habíanreportado237 casosconfirmados de sarampión.La mayoría de estoscasosestánrelacionadosa unaescuelaprivada en la cual hay un gran numero de estudiantesque no hansidovacunados.

 InformaciónGeneral:

  • Sarampión es una enfermedad altamente contagiosa que es transmitida gotitas respiratorias esparcidas en el aire.
  • Síntomas incluyen erupcióncutánea (sarpullido), fiebre, tos, secreción nasal, y conjuntivitis(ojos rojos e inflamados).
  • Esta enfermedad puede resultar en complicaciones severas incluyendo neumonía y encefalitis (inflamación del cerebro y el cordón espinal).

·         Sarampión es contagioso 1-2 días antes de la aparición de síntomas(típicamente4-5 días antes de la aparición del brote en la piel) hasta 4 díasdespués de la aparición del brote en la piel.

·         El periodo de incubación para el sarampión desde el día de exposición hasta la aparición de síntomas es de 7 – 21 días.

 

Que debe hacer si se enferma:

·         Evite el contacto con otros.

·         Visite a su proveedor de salud. Si usted no tiene un proveedor de salud establecido, vaya a la sala de emergencias del hospital o a una clínica de urgencias. Llame a su proveedor de salud, sala de emergencias del hospital o a clínica de urgencias antes de ir para su evaluación, para que ellos puedan prepararse para su visita sin exponer a otros pacientes.

 

Que debe hacer para prevenir el sarampión:

·         Vacúnese. Más del 99% de la gente que recibe dos dosis de la vacuna del sarampión(primera dosis administrada no antes del primer año de vida)desarrolla inmunidad contra el sarampión.

·         Evite el contacto. Si usted conoce a alguien que esté enfermo con fiebre y brote en la piel, evite el contacto con esa persona a menos que usted sepa que usted es inmune al virus del sarampión.

 

Si su hijo(a) es expuesto al sarampión y usted no puede demostrar inmunidad (documentación que de haber padecido de sarampión, test de sangre mostrando inmunidad, o prueba de dos vacunas del sarampión)este informado que su hijo(a) será excluido de la escuela, trabajo, o de otros sitios públicospor lomenos 21 díasdespués de haber sido expuesto. Esto es necesario para prevenir el contagio a otros residentesen nuestra comunidad.

 

Si usted sabe que su hijo(a) no está vacunado y usted no planea vacunarlo(a) contra el sarampión, por favor considere en hacer planes para su cuidado en casa durante el periodo de exclusión. Es muy importante que otros no sean expuestos durante este periodo de tiempo.

 Si tiene preguntas, contacte a su proveedor de salud o al departamento de salud pública del Condado de Whatcom.

 Substitutes Needed at Nooksack Valley 
 

Have you ever considered working as a substitute employee?  The role of a substitute teacher or staff member is highly valued by the District.  Substitutes provide services which allow the District to continue a quality educational program when a staff member is absent.  Substitutes work in both certificated (teaching) and classified (support) positions (i.e., office support, food service workers, custodians, bus drivers, etc.)

 

Both volunteer and substitute employment packets may be obtained at the District office. If you are interested in finding out more information about either of these opportunities, or if you would like to have materials mailed to you, please contact Glenna Nolte at (360) 988-4754.
