Recently there were reports of mosquitoes in Connecticut testing positive for Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE).  In light of these findings, the West Haven Public Schools along with all outdoor city facilities will take precautionary measures. Effective this week, afternoon/evening outdoor school activities will end by 6:30 pm.  We are working with area schools to finalize athletic schedules.  The following precautions are also suggested: • If outdoor activity is unavoidable, especially around dawn or dusk, be sure to use insect repellent and cover bare skin. • Use insect repellent, according to label instructions, when it is necessary to be outdoors. • Wear shoes, socks, long pants, and a long-sleeved shirt when outdoors for long periods of time. Clothing should be light-colored and made of tightly woven materials that keep mosquitoes away from the skin. At this time, there are no recommendations to limit outdoor activities during the daytime hours. We will continue to monitor this situation, and will work closely with our school health supervisor to ensure that all decisions made are in the best interest of the health and safety of our students and staff.

This year, the Kindergarten students did "Alphabet Boot Camp."  They learned one letter per day for the first twenty-six days of school.  There were various activities and projects (such as making hats with an object that began with a particular letter) that they did each day.  The parade was the culminating activity and the kids all made alphabet vests that they are wearing in the parade. The students had a fun time parading while the other students watched.
