Bill will be doing on-line interpreting of soil tests.
Speakers today were from the CVSD Crisis Management Program, Kent Martin Director of Secondary and Pat Shelly head counselor at U high. Their mantra is “Don’t Panic!” Cherie Loure from Salem Oregon came to put on a 5-day training for the crisis response team. This helped them to develop a crisis response manual with an evacuation plan, labs cut-off charts, off-site locations for evacuations, etc.
