Welcome to LEUSD
Global School Play Day is February 4!
Earl Warren Elementary 5th grade instructor Tim Bedley has 374 classes and schools signed up, representing over 34,000 students from 17 countries and all six inhabited continents. Tim was the 2013 Riverside County Teacher of the Year. He recently started an initiative to bring unstructured play back to this generation of children, because “kids have forgotten how to play.” Global School Play Day was developed by a diverse team of educators, including administrators and other teachers of the year. The reaction has been phenomenal. After less than 3 weeks of word-of-mouth promotions through social media, over 34,000 kids will be involved in a day that will celebrating student initiated unstructured play.

Online Information About Measles Vaccination
According to the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), measles is a highly contagious viral disease that is preventable with vaccination. Because many cases have been reported in California since December, 2014, both CDPH and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have posted useful information about measles prevention and protection through vaccination. Two doses of measles-containing vaccine (MMR vaccine) are more than 99 percent effective in preventing measles. Typically, the first dose is given to children between 12 and 18 months of age, and a second dose is given before children enter Kindergarten. If your child has not been immunized, check with your doctor about measles (MMR) vaccination.
