West Nile Virus Still A Threat In The Valley

West Nile Virus Still A Threat In The Valley

The triple digit temperatures are having a major impact on the spread of West Nile Virus here in the valley.

Experts say the heat speeds up a mosquito's life cycle and that means more breeding.

It also accelerates the West Nile Virus replication process.

Mark Berman and his family are visiting the valley from the Netherlands.

He knew nothing about a recent collection of mosquitoes that were infected with the disease.

Tourist Mark Berman says, "We are going to spray absolutely, don't plan to get bitten or ill."

The mosquitos were discovered in the Sherwood area, near Sanger in eastern Fresno County.

SUMMER BRIDGE STUDENTS ALREADY BACK TO SCHOOL

SUMMER BRIDGE STUDENTS ALREADY BACK TO SCHOOL

 

 

FRESNO – Three campuses in the Fresno Unified School District are already “back to school” through the Summer Bridge Program, providing students with a head start on school routines and extra academic help. The schools are:

  • Webster Elementary School (Aug. 6-17); 360 students.
  • Carver Academy (Aug. 6-17); 70 fifth- and sixth-graders.
  • Cooper Middle School (July 30-Aug. 14); 250 sixth- and seventh-graders, with a focus on smoothing the transition to the new International Baccalaureate program.

Webster Elementary Principal Kelli Wilkins said the Summer Bridge Program, also in place last summer, was one of the reasons for improved academic achievement at her school last year: “We focus on teaching the structures and routines that students will need in order to be successful, as well as getting a head start on the academic learning.”

The regular school year starts on Monday, Aug.
