A message from the school nurse


People in Humboldt County, and the State of California, are experiencing an increase in the number of cases of people diagnosed with Pertussis, also known as Whooping Cough. Pertussis is caused by bacteria, and can be treated with antibiotics.

The infection is generally less severe in immunized teens and adults. We have some students at our school who have been vaccinated, and this year contracted Whooping Cough.

Please be on the look-out for mild cold-like symptoms lasting for 1-2 weeks. After the mild cold symptoms, severe coughing can begin.  Infected people are most contagious up to about 2 weeks after the more severe cough begins.

If your student develops these symptoms, please seek the advice of your health provider to determine whether your student has whooping cough disease. Students can return to school after a 5 day course of antibiotics.

Having a recent vaccination against Whooping Cough is the most likely way to prevent you and your children from contracting the illness.

If you have any questions, you can reach me at 839-6410 or 825-2410. Another resource is the County of Humboldt Health and Human Resources Public Health Department, where you can speak with a Communicable Disease Prevention Nurse. The phone number for that service is 268-2182.

Job Shadow Provides Real Local Experiences


Thanks to the Arcata Police Department for hosting a Job Shadow for senior Jenia Collingwood.  Nothing beats the chance for our students to spend time on site at different work places learning what a job or career offers and requires.

Call for Job Shadow hosts!

There is an old quote, often attributed to Buddha that says, "If you light a lamp for someone it will also brighten your own path." Serving as a Job Shadow host does just that. It lets an Arcata High School student learn about your job or career, while you benefit from being a mentor.  Serving as a Job Shadow host is only a commitment of from two hours to one full day, but it can have a lasting impact by giving a student the chance to get a practical, real-world look at what a job involves. Please join us as a host this year. Call Career & College Center Coordinator Jim Ritter at 498-2917 for more information.
