The phone rings and your son or daughter says "Mom and Dad, I was in an accident. I was drinking. I’m okay, but I don’t think Kelvin is." The thought of answering such a call is a parent’s worst nightmare. Twenty five Vista Del Lago parents will receive that telephone call tomorrow. One family will learn that their son or daughter was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol and vehicular manslaughter.

 

The Every 15 Minutes program returns to Vista Del Lago High School tomorrow and Thursday through the coordinated efforts of the Folsom Police Department, the Folsom Fire Department, the California Highway Patrol, and the Folsom Cordova Unified School District. Although it is only a two day event, months of preparation come down to these final two days.

El Dorado County selected for progressive national education program

A partnership consisting of educators from the El Dorado Center of Folsom Lake College, the El Dorado County Office of Education and the Western Slope Boys and Girls Club in El Dorado County has won a competitive bid to launch a new effort to improve services for youth and young adults.

Green Oaks Fundamental School is hosting a living museum April 15

Ever thought you’d have the chance to ask Paul Revere what he was thinking on his ride through Lexington? Or what first prompted Walt Disney to build Disneyland?

Come check out the Green Oaks 5th grade Living Museum!

Other schools have wax museums, but those kids just stand there. We’re alive!

Our Museum will be open from 8:30 until 11:45 (with a 15 minute break at 10:00) on Thursday, April 14 at Green Oaks Fundamental School, 7145 Filbert Avenue Orangevale.

There will be 68 exhibits and each exhibit will have a painted backdrop, a talking character in his/her period costume and props to make each exhibit interesting.
