Record Breaking Attendance!





For the last week at Laguna Middle School, San Luis Obispo a huge fever/cold bug has been going around. Each day sending almost 20 kids home a day! School attendance secretary Julie Mattson comments "This is a record breaking number of absences in the last eight years." Almost 200 kids absent just from fever or cold on May 6, 2015, equaling about 20% of the kids not at school! Sick kids are popping up left and right, and of course it just so happens to start right during the testing month, causing students to miss tests and having to schedule makeups during another class! Is this outbreak hurting the kids test results? or even effecting their education? How much longer will these cases go on?
