I am hearing that Storm #2 continues to have the potential for damaging rain, strong winds, and lots of mountain snow. At this time, there is a 40-50% chance of this system bringing 3-5” of rainfall countywide and 5-10” in the mountains and foothills.

We had a great conversation with Assemblyman Gregg Hart about maintaining local control for school districts. His commitment to public service and education, plus his background work with former state superintendent of instruction Jack O'Connell, is truly appreciated.

Wow! We had such great attendance during today's Parent Professional Development with Dr. Brooke Sears. Dr. Sears spent the morning helping us all better understand how to parent and support our children. I have attached a list of resources she shared with the group. They include a recommended reading list for students and adults, a coping strategies list, and strategies for reversing the cycle of anxiety. I'm looking forward to our next Parent Professional Development with Dr. Rosy Bucio, Santa Barbara County Special Education Behavior Specialist, on November 13th at 8:25 AM. Dr. Bucio will be presenting on "Anxiety and How to Successfully Monitor you Child's Technology use at home."
