With the cold and flu season upon us and concerns about the novel coronavirus, or recently named COVID-19, we wanted to give you the most recent information from Placer County Public Health about COVID-19 and provide you with tips to help you stay healthy this season and help prevent flu and other respiratory illnesses.
Facts about COVID-19
Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses. Typically, human coronaviruses cause mild-to-moderate respiratory illness. In some cases, COVID-19 can cause more severe respiratory illness.
Most of the people sickened with COVID-19 have been adults.
To date, California has a total of 9 confirmed cases. On Feb. 26, the first possible case of community transmission was confirmed in a Solano County resident who is being treated at a Sacramento Hospital.
Public health professionals in the U.S. are working to slow the spread of COVID-19 and to prepare for increased cases and possible local transmission of the infection.
This is an evolving situation. The risk to the general public remains low at this time and no cases have been confirmed in Placer County, but this is the time to prepare for potential disruptions that could come with increased spread of COVID-19.
See links below for more information.

Upcoming Lighthouse Classes

Lighthouse is also pleased to announce that we will be starting our Spanish Road to Wellness, Anxiety & Depression Management-Adults in April!
Lighthouse would like to take this time to remind every one that the 2020 US Census will be mailed out between March 12th and 20th. This questionnaire is very short and easy to fill out, please take the time to fill it out.
As always, thank you for all YOU do for the residents of Placer County and thank you for your continued support of Lighthouse Counseling & Family Resource.
Your Opinion Matters To Us
We've seen an increase in the number of students absent recently due to colds, flu and even strep throat. This year seems to be a bit worse than in the past so we want to give you a few reminders to help us all stay well and healthy.
If your student gets sick, it is often most appropriate to keep him/her home from school. A student who is sick will not be able to perform well in school and may spread the illness to other students and staff, especially those who have weakened immune systems.
In general, a student should remain home if he/she has:
Fever of 100 degrees or greater in the past 24 hours (We request that students to remain at home until they have been fever free without the use of medicine for 24 hours)
Thick mucus or drainage
Bad cold, with a very runny nose or bad cough, especially if it has kept the student awake at night.
If your student becomes ill at school, you may be called to come and take your student home from school. Please be sure that arrangements can be made to transport your student home from school and that childcare is available in case of illness. If your daytime or emergency phone numbers change during the year, please notify the front office immediately.
These guidelines are meant to serve the best interests of all students in our schools. If you have questions or concerns please contact the school or review our illness guidelines at: http://www.wpusd.org/Parent-Resources/Health-Services/index.html
Intra and Inter District Transfers
Inter-district transfers will be accepted starting February 3rd. If you have any questions please contact the school office or go to: http://www.wpusd.org/Parent-Resources/Student-Attendance--IntraInterdistrict-Transfers/index.html for more info.
Did you know that there are many students and a teacher at Coppin that have an interest in rocks and geology? Our own Mr. Lopez (4th grade teacher) is our resident expert in rocks, history and geology and has quite a collection of rocks in his classroom. Over the years, students have come to know that they can go to Mr. Lopez's room after school to learn, explore and sometimes trade rocks. Mr. Lopez will be available for rock trading and exploration on Wednesdays and Thursdays each week, before and after school. We are hoping that designating some days for rock trading will help with plans for drop off and pick up at school. If you have specific questions about our infamous "rock trading," we encourage you to email Mrs. Coyle or Mr. Lopez directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Happy trading!
TK/Kinder 2020-2021 School Year Registration
If you currently have a TK student you will need to register him/her online for Kindergarten enrollment. If you have a Kinder - 4th already enrolled at Coppin you do not have to re-enroll your student(s).
To complete your registration you will need to turn in the following:
(Along with your completed online registration)
- Birth Certificate
- Immunizations Records
- Proof of Residency (i.e. water or electric bill)
If you missed the TK/Kinder meeting On January 5th, please click here for the presentation.
It's Raining, It's Pouring...
Also, please note as the weather changes our morning routines may change. On cold/rainy mornings we will have students wait in the cafeteria instead of the courtyard from 7:45-8:00am. We will open the playground at 8:00 as usual. On rainy days, we also have kids wait in the cafeteria until their teachers come to pick them up for class.

K-Kids Meeting Dates
Support School Safety
Parking & Drop Off
Please note that parking is at a premium, particularly now that we have so many new families who joined us this fall. If you are arriving early and waiting with your child in your car, please consider parking along the street to ensure our staff can find parking when they arrive.
It is essential that you pull all the way forward in the drop off lane so that we can get all of our cars/kiddos into the drop off zone and then out of their car in a safe and efficient manner. When there are no buses in the drop off area, please pull all the way forward. You may drop off in the bus area after the buses leave. This will create more room for everyone to move through safely.
If you are walking your child onto campus and plan to go past the big, black gate, you must sign in at the front office and obtain a visitor badge to be on campus. Remember to sign out when you leave as well. This helps us to account for everyone that is on campus.
Food Service News
We've gotten lots of feedback from students and families regarding some changes in food services. Here is some info from our Food Service Director Christina Lawson:
A. WPUSD has started offering chocolate milk on Fridays only. Our Food Service department is really focused on bringing in lots of fruits and vegetables this year and reducing down the occurrence of items with added sugar.
B. Want to help shape the future of WPUSD food service offerings? We are looking for teachers, parents, community members that are interested in being on some panels/focus groups regarding food service selections and branding over the next year. Please reach out to Christina Lawson at email@example.com if interested.
C. We are lucky to be able to feature lots of CA grown produce that is seasonal and fresh. All our offerings are all CA Grown at the moment including our carrots, lettuce, plums, peaches, oranges, zucchini, strawberries to name a few!
