Los Altos High students and local residents protest the political situation in Haiti at the corner of El Camino Real and San Antonio Road Dec. 12.

Approximately 30 Los Altos High students and local residents held a peaceful protest to show solidarity for students in Haiti last week at a protest at the corner of El Camino Real and San Antonio Road.

LASD questions BCS enrollment projection for next school year

The charter school provided the number of in-district students it expects for the following school year, because those are the students the district is required to find facilities for. The district can object to that number and provide a counterprojection, which it has done in years past.

Egan trip changes perspective of Yosemite

I used to think Yosemite was overrated.

The first time I went there was in fifth grade with my family. After hearing comments about how “breathtaking” and “absolutely wonderful” Yosemite was, we were looking forward to a great trip. But due to the weather (winter was just turning to spring), we didn’t get to enjoy the outdoors as much as we had hoped.
