FOOTBALL RIVALS TEAM UP TO DEFEAT UNDERAGE DRINKING


“FOOTBALL RIVALS TEAM UP TO DEFEAT UNDERAGE DRINKING”
Opposing teams to sport red ribbons to highlight city’s social host ordinance

Mission Hills High School Grizzlies and San Marcos High School Knights football teams pause their longstanding rivalry to raise awareness of the dangers of underage drinking, during Red Ribbon Week. All the players will sport red ribbon stickers on their helmets when they meet up for a California Interscholastic Federation football game. Referees, coaches, cheerleaders and other school leaders will show their support by wearing pin-on versions of the ribbons. The goal is to provide students, parents and other football fans with visual reminders that it is illegal to provide anyone under 21 with alcohol or a drinking venue.

Visuals will include:
Players streaming onto the field with red ribbon stickers on their helmets in a sign of unity against underage drinking. Home team captain handing a red ribbon sticker to visiting team captain, who places it on his helmet (immediately before the coin toss).
Cheer squads performing with red ribbons pinned to their uniforms.

When: 7:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., Friday, October 26, 2018

Where: San Marcos High School, 1615 West San Marcos Boulevard, San Marcos, CA 92078

Alcohol is the substance most widely abused among American youth.[1] Nearly half (48.3 percent) of San Diego County 11th graders who participated in the 2013-2015 California Healthy Kids Survey reported they had used alcohol at least once.[2] Negative consequences associated with underage drinking include alcohol poisoning, risky sexual behavior physical and sexual assault, and motor vehicle crashes.

This Red Ribbon campaign is designed to raise awareness of underage drinking, help parents and teens understand there is no safe setting for it, and highlight the fact that social host laws protect everyone from the hazards common to underage drinking.

San Marcos school board passes $227 million budget, avoids shortfalls

 

 

The San Marcos Unified School District board tentatively passed a $227 million budget Tuesday, narrowly avoiding anticipated deficits for the 2018-19 school year.The school district, which serves about 20,000 students in North County, originally expected to run a deficit of more than $17 million for the coming school year. However, increases in state education funding helped stave off that shortfall. The district made spending cuts in recent months, and drew on other funds to close the remaining gap between revenue and expenses.The budget approved Tuesday projects that San Marcos schools will spend about $227.3 million in the 2018-19 school year, and bring in revenues of $220.5 million. The balance of about $6.8 million comes from district reserves, and from one-time state funds, said Assistant Superintendent for Business Services Mark Schiel. That will leave the district with a balanced budget, but with little left over.“We will have our required 3 percent minimum reserve, but there will be nothing above and beyond that” at the end of next school year, Schiel said.California state law requires districts to maintain reserves of at least 3 percent, Schiel said, but the average reserve for Unified School Districts is about 17 percent. If a school district falls too far below the requirements for maintaining balanced budgets and adequate reserves, the County Office of Education may step in to offer support, and intervene directly in spending decisions and labor agreements, according to the state Legislative Analyst’s Office.
