Halloween Candy Exhange Program

Juliana Hernandez, a fourth grader at Baldy View Elementary School, had no expectations when she turned in three pounds of extra Halloween candy as part of a give back program to support U.S. troops. “I thought it was going to be fun. I thought it was going to help,” Juliana said Monday, after her raffle ticket was drawn for a new bicycle. “I was happy and surprised.”

The program, the first of its kind in the Upland Unified School District (UUSD), was part of a bigger candy exchange that West End YMCA sponsored as part of Military Family Month. Baldy View encouraged students to bring in their excess Halloween candy and collected 126 pounds of sweets, which will be sent to troops through Operation Gratitude. For each pound of candy turned in, students received a raffle ticket for a new bicycle or a gift certificate. The YMCA provided the school with two new bicycles, won by Juliana and Daniel Yang, a third grader. The school provided the 13 gift certificates.

California Disclosure of Legal Records

As many of our county schools and districts have learned, U.S. District Court Judge Kimberly Mueller ordered additional safeguards be placed for the release of student data and stated that copies of the CalPADS database will not be produced for plaintiffs in the Morgan Hill Case.

County Schools has provided an update on the court ruling of Feb. 29 by Judge Mueller, as well as links to the California Department of Education’s webpage that provides additional information.

For more information on the Morgan Hill case, please visit the County Schools’ webpage.

As more information becomes available, County Schools will continue to provide updates.
