Measles Outbreak Letter (Click here for a letter to parents)
The recent measles outbreak in California has dominated local news for the past weeks in Los Angeles County. Measles (rubeola) is a highly contagious viral disease that spreads from person to person by respiratory droplets.

Students and staff must help prevent measles from entering school campuses. Common signs and symptoms include fever, runny nose, cough, conjunctivitis (pink eye) and a rash all over the body. Severe complications are rare but may include pneumonia, encephalitis (swelling around the brain) and even death.

Vaccination with two doses of measles-containing vaccine is the most safe and effective way to prevent the disease. Studies show that 99% of persons who receive two doses of measles vaccine develop immunity (protection against the disease).

Hawthorne High School hosted two NJROTC air rifle matches. The first was held on January 17th, 2015, which were the playoffs. Eight teams competed including Hawthorne, Cabrillo, Troy (2 teams), Reseda, West Valley, Pasadena and Chaffey High Schools. Hawthorne finished in 2nd place, qualifying them to compete in the Area 11 Air Rifle Championships, held the following week at Hawthorne and Troy High Schools. Hawthorne finished 12th out of 20 schools for the first time in that competition. The team is comprised of Cadets Lorenzo Mejia, Nick Moncada, Jorddy Fuentes, and Jonathon Villagomez.

Cadets recently attended the Navy's Damage Control Wet Flooding Trainer. They were trained how to conduct repairs on a sinking ship, support collapsing bulkheads (walls) and patch holes in the hull of the ship. Following the training, the cadets ate navy chow in the mess hall and toured the USS Essex. They learned about at sea operations on a dock landing ship and how the ship supports amphibious operations with the Marines.
