Manteca's emergency responders – police and fire – are stepping onto the Sierra High School hardwoods Thursday night at 6 o'clock to put on an exhibition basketball game for the benefit of the school's Class of 2011 Sober Grad Night.
The biggest test that could prevent 10,000 Manteca Unified students from advancing to the next grade level in August is whether they can provide documentation they are immunized against perstussis that is also known as whooping cough.
A salary raise for Manteca Unified teachers is long overdue, said Ken Johnson, the president of the Manteca Educators Association which is in the midst of continuing salary negotiations with the school district.
During continuing teachers' salary negotiations, the specifics of behind-doors talks with representatives of the Manteca Educators Association are strictly confidential, Manteca Unified Deputy Superintendent Clark Burke said, explaining why he could not answer questions about statements made by the union members.
Parents of Manteca Unified students are invited to attend a free seminar about using OneNote – the software that students and staff will be using as part of the district's Going Digital initiative. By understanding OneNote, parents will be better able to support their children with their education needs.
