  • Health Alert

    Posted by Kim Moore at 10/10/2014

    Travis Parents and Community Members, 

    Solano Public Health recently confirmed a case of enterovirus D68 (EV-D68) in a school age child.  We want to take this opportunity to provide you with information about the disease that you may have heard about in the news.

    Enteroviruses normally circulate in the summer and fall. EV-D68 typically causes mild respiratory symptoms including runny nose, sneezing, cough, muscle and/or body ache.  Fever may be present.  In some instances, people infected with EV-D68 have severe symptoms including wheezing and difficulty breathing.  Please remember, enteroviruses are not related to the Ebola virus.

    Enterovirus-D68 can be found in an infected person’s saliva, nasal mucus or sputum.  It is spread from person-to-person through coughs, sneezes or contaminated objects.   There is currently no vaccine against EV-D68.  The best way to protect yourself and your family is to wash your hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds, avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unclean hands, avoid kissing, hugging, and sharing cups or utensils with sick people and disinfect surfaces that are frequently touched, such as toys and doorknobs, especially if someone is sick.

    There is no specific treatment for people with EV-D68 infection.  For people with mild respiratory illness, symptoms can be managed by taking over-the-counter medications.  However, if your child experiences severe respiratory symptoms, including wheezing and/or shortness of breath, seek medical care immediately.  Every precaution we all take can certainly help our families and students stay as healthy as possible this school year.

    Thank you!

  • City of Vacaville School Crossing Guards Honored at Ceremony

    Posted by Kim Moore at 8/26/2014

    The Vacaville Police Department’s annual Awards and Training Day for Crossing Guards was held recently at the department’s Emergency Operations Center.

    The Awards and Training Day, held August 12, was a chance to recognize those crossing guards who showed exemplary service during the past year; welcome new crossing guards into the organization; and provide training for the people who help get our children across the streets near schools in a safe manner.

    Captain Ian Schmutzler and Chief John Carli welcomed the 36 crossing guards in attendance and presented awards.  
     
    Among those receiving awards were Travis USD's, Oscar San Nicolas (Foxboro) given a 5 year pin, and Penny Ramey (Cambridge) given a 10 year pin and an Excellent Attendance award.  Congratulations Oscar and Penny!
