Rebecca Baugh, science teacher at Eureka High School, was recently selected to receive one of the five 2014 Carlston Family Foundation Outstanding Teachers of America Awards. Each teacher selected will receive a $15,000 cash award and a Grant of $5,000 for their school.
Carlston Honorees are nominated by former students who are currently enrolled in or have graduated from a four year college or university. Students personally describe the reasons for the nomination, identifying characteristics of the teachers that make them more effective than others, specific teaching techniques that increase interest and motivation of students, and the exact life changing impact of the teacher on his/her life. Most students who nominate teachers are first generation college students who have overcome significant obstacles to become academically and personally successful and credit this teacher for their success.

All students are safe. Zane was in a precautionary lock down for about 20 minutes today starting at approximately 12:30 p.m. at the request of the Eureka Police Department. An inmate walked away from the SWAP yard across the gulch from Zane. EPD has determined the area to be safe and has allowed us to lift the lock down. The inmate has not been apprehended, but we have been advised by EPD that students are not in danger. Dismissal this afternoon will happen as usual.
Update: The inmate that walked away from the SWAP yard across from Zane is now in custody.

Along with many other schools in Humboldt County, Lafayette participated in this year’s International Walk to School Day, held on Wednesday, October 8. Over 50 students walked with us from Sacred Heart Church, down Myrtle Ave to the Lafayette campus. Over 20 additional students walked to school other ways. All walking students signed a banner, donated by Clif Bars -- an organization that has partnered with Safe Routes to Schools. Students were also treated to a healthy fruit snack, also generously donated by Clif Bars. In an effort to continue bringing healthy energy education to the Lafayette community, we have planned a walking to school event on the first Wednesday of each month, meeting at Sacred Heart Church at 7:30 am. Come and join in on the fun!
