April 26, 2011 — Over the course of the last couple of weeks, we have been covering a meeting that was to take place at 6 p.m. today, Tuesday, April 26, at the Post Office at 65 North Lassen St.
The meeting was to solicit community feedback on whether or not the U.S. Postal Service should close the Eagle Station Post Office on Johnstonville Road, in order to consolidate the services within Susanville.
That meeting’s been cancelled.
April 19, 2011 — Recently, the Western Association of Schools and Colleges visited the Lassen Union High School District schools of which there are three, and reported on the school’s friendliness and facilities, but it also said Lassen High School needed to focus more on state standards.
Teachers often hand out a syllabus at the beginning of the school year listing how they will follow the state standards so not only the student but also the parents know what the objectives are. From looking at some of the outlines there is not much wiggle room for spontaneous teaching that comes from daily news events. Swaying from the state curriculum could take the class off course.
