March 20, 2017…Pittsburg Unified School District (PUSD) is recognized as a 2016-17 Model School Attendance Review Board (SARB). Notification of this honor was emailed by the California Department of Education (CDE) to the school district, stating readers of the award application noted, “Your impressive prevention, early identification, and intervention strategies as well as your excellent inventory of community resources.”

“I am incredibly thankful for the time and commitment so many Pittsburg community members give in order to support our young people,” said Dr. Janet Schulze, Superintendent, Pittsburg Unified School District. “Dr. Frazier-Myers and the Student Services Team have done an outstanding job in creating a process that truly is there to support our students and families.”

Pittsburg Unified School District’s SARB program is aimed at helping students and parents receive resources needed to assist children with attending school on-time in a daily manner. Through a community collaboration, the District has established a well-attended and supported SARB, focused on students succeeding. Comprised of dozens of members, the SARB includes Pittsburg business owners, Deputy District Attorney of Contra Costa County, ministers, an army sergeant, Pittsburg police officers, foster parents, after school coordinator, NAACP members, mentors, parent coordinators, school counselors, child welfare advocates, and many additional school district employees. The SARB meets bi-weekly with parents and families, providing Spanish translation during outreach efforts and meetings. The SARB was created with a mindset to provide a culturally diverse team that resonates with the needs of the student population.

“It is an honor to receive this award on behalf of the District,” said Dr. ReJois Frazier-Myers, Director, Student Services, Pittsburg Unified School District. “This award belongs to all of the people the Student Services Department serves. We could not have received this honor without the support of the District and our community. All of our partners have come together to inspire our scholars to become global citizens and graduate with viable options to navigate successfully in our society. Countless hours have gone into our SARB efforts and we appreciate all of the hard work and dedication.”

The District-wide effort of promoting school attendance and why attendance matters is a priority at Pittsburg Unified School District. PUSD’s SARB meets annually to analyze areas for improvement, successes, and goals. Outcomes and data are shared regularly with school principals and it is a team effort to put interventions in place, to get students back on track with attendance. Prevention and early identification of attendance issues are also addressed at each elementary school site with a daily or weekly attendance board, indicating a progress report for school attendance. Contests and class recognition for school attendance are encouraged. In addition, each year, the District celebrates students with perfect attendance and honors families in a special recognition ceremony. PUSD is very honored and excited to be named as a Model SARB by the CDE.

Pittsburg Unified School District’s SARB program will be recognized at a luncheon for Model SARBs at the State Conference of the California Association of Supervisors of Child Welfare and Attendance (CASCWA) on April 19, 2017 in Tahoe City, California.

Spring Prescribed Burning Mark Twain NF (Prescribed Fire)

Submit the press release

Mark Twain National Forest’s spring prescribed fire season is underway. Prescribed fires are used primarily to help reduce the threat of wildfires and to improve the health of native plants and wildlife habitat in the Forest. Deer, turkey, quail and other species benefit when the plants they depend on for food or cover are rejuvenated by the use of fire.

  • As of 3/21/17, the Forest has used prescribed fire to treat approximately 33,500 acres.
  • Only two prescribed fires are planned for this week, one on Potosi Unit and one on Cassville Unit, as weather permits.

Each prescribed burn will be conducted when favorable atmospheric ventilation (such as high-elevation breezes) are occurring to pull the smoke away and minimize smoke impacts to local communities. Although some smoke may be visible and affect nearby communities, the Forest Service strives to keep smoke impacts within federal and state air quality standards. Signs will be posted on roads near all prescribed burn areas prior to and when burning is in progress. When encountering the signs, drivers are asked to slow down in case shifting winds increase the smoke along roadways near the burn areas. If the public encounters smoke on the highways, slow down, turn on your vehicle’s lights and drive appropriately for the conditions. Firefighters on the Mark Twain National Forest will look for opportunities to conduct several prescribed burns in the next few months. A list of planned prescribed fire operations can be seen here. For more information about any particular prescribed fire project, please contact your local Ranger District office. A list of office phone number can be found on our website at https://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/mtnf/about-forest/offices. Prescribed fires lit by hand crews and by helicopter operations are planned for multiple locations around the Forest. Neighboring landowners will be contacted by the Forest Service prior to ignitions. Burn objectives are primarily to reduce the fuel loading in the hardwoods and glades, while stimulating the grass/forbs plant community and maintaining the open areas by top-killing invading woody species. This promotes wildlife diversity and habitat. Prescribed fire also diversifies grass and other plant communities. In more forested areas, the objective is to mimic the historical fire occurrence and improve forest health by clearing the forest floor for pine regeneration. Mark Twain National Forest is the largest public land manager in Missouri with 1.5 million acres in 29 counties in southern and central Missouri. Mark Twain National Forest is managed to protect and restore Missouri’s natural communities and maintain a healthy, working forest. Follow us at www.facebook.com/marktwainnationalforest.

PrescribeWellness Survey: 89 Percent of Americans Feel Shingles Vaccination Is a Priority

Submit the press release

IRVINE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–PrescribeWellness, the cloud-based services company whose mission is to inspire collaboration for better health, today announced the results of its 2017 Vaccination and Preventive Care Survey. The survey, which was conducted by Propeller Insights on behalf of PrescribeWellness and fielded to 1,000 American adults aged 35+, gauged Americans’ feelings about vaccination, medical records and neighborhood pharmacies.

Vaccination Nation

According to the CDC, one in three people will develop shingles in their lifetime and Americans are taking this risk seriously: 89 percent think it is important to take shingles immunization seriously—because shingles is painful (73 percent) and takes a long time to heal (56 percent), because the virus can lie dormant for decades (60 percent) and because it often affects the elderly, who are often less capable of caring for themselves (48 percent).

Forty percent of Americans have been directly affected by the shingles epidemic in some way:

  • 22 percent say a member of their immediate or extended family has had shingles
  • 14 percent say they or their spouse has suffered from shingles
  • 12 percent have friends who have been affected

„It’s wonderful that Americans are taking the shingles immunization seriously, as the vaccine significantly reduces a person’s risk of developing herpes zoster,” said Farah Madhat, PharmD, a licensed pharmacist and Director of Clinical Services at PrescribeWellness. “But there are other vaccines they should also make a priority. The pneumococcal and flu vaccines are also effective, inexpensive and readily available at local pharmacies without a prescription in most states. Pneumococcal disease can cause severe infections of the lungs—pneumonia—bloodstream and lining of the brain and spinal cord, more commonly known as meningitis. Each year in the United States, pneumococcal disease kills thousands of adults and hospitalizes thousands more.”

Eighty-six percent of Americans also feel it is important for the state to be updated on their vaccine records. Top reasons include:

  • So doctors can more easily know which vaccines they’ve received—44 percent
  • Helps doctors and pharmacists to provide quality care—32 percent
  • Creates more transparency into their medical history—25 percent
  • Makes switching doctors/pharmacists easier—23 percent

Americans prefer neighborhood pharmacies for many things

The survey also revealed that many Americans prefer visiting their local pharmacy to visiting their doctor’s office—62 percent, in fact.

Most of the reasons hinged upon convenience:

  • Their pharmacy is a “one-stop shop” for many health and wellness needs—26 percent
  • The local pharmacy is easier to get to than the doctor’s office—24 percent
  • They get faster (23 percent) and friendlier (22 percent) service
  • Their pharmacist helps keep their medications in order—19 percent

Twenty-one percent of American parents say they prefer visiting their local pharmacy because it is more convenient than visiting a doctor’s office when they have the kids with them.

More than half of Americans (55 percent) said they prefer to be immunized at their local pharmacies instead of at the doctor’s office, citing many of the same reasons. This included 28 percent of parents, who enjoy the convenience of getting the whole family immunized at once.

A mess of medical records

When it comes to managing their medical records, most Americans say they try to stay with the same doctor who knows their medical history (56 percent), but the remaining 44 percent report less fail-safe methods of managing their medical histories:

  • 15 percent hope previous providers share information with new ones
  • 8 percent say they verbally update new care providers
  • 5 percent carry paper records
  • 5 percent say they don’t update new health providers at all

This is perhaps why the vast majority of Americans (85 percent) agree that it would be useful if their pharmacist could share medication purchase records electronically with their physicians.

“These survey findings confirm the willingness of consumers to get proactive about their healthcare options and preventive care,” said Al Babbington, CEO of PrescribeWellness. “It also speaks to the many opportunities for neighborhood pharmacies to better help Americans on the path to better health management—from immunization and medication adherence to managing medical records—and we look forward to aiding them in that mission.”

About PrescribeWellness

PrescribeWellness inspires collaboration for better health across America by connecting patients to locally owned community pharmacies. Its proprietary cloud-based platform empowers pharmacists to provide more effective preventive health care services, which improve medication adherence, chronic disease management, transitions in care, and population health.

CENTRAL VA. ROADS CLEAR BUT CAUTION IS STILL THE WORD
With refreeze a possibility overnight, drivers should continue to monitor conditions

CULPEPER — Roads across the nine counties of the Virginia Department of Transportation’s Culpeper District are clear with the exception of some secondary roads in Fauquier County where patches of snow and slush are still reported on some roads in the northern part of the county.

Afternoon sun and above-freezing temperatures have assisted VDOT crews in their work to clear the region’s secondary roads (routes numbered 600 and above). Crews are winding up that work and expect to have all roads plowed and treated with sand and salt by late afternoon.

Concern remains for driving conditions during the late evening Tuesday and early Wednesday morning. Overnight temperatures are forecast to drop into the low 20s and even the teens in some areas near the mountains, so motorists are likely to encounter refreezing and black ice during their Wednesday morning commute. VDOT asks motorists to plan extra time for travel and to use caution, especially in spots that tend to freeze first: bridges, overpasses, ramps, intersections and along shaded and low-volume roadways.

Visit virginiadot.org/culpeperemergency for news releases, important messages and links to VDOT snow resources. Local updates are also posted to twitter.com/vadotculp.
