District News & Announcements


Pertussis, also known as whooping cough, is a contagious disease affecting the lungs. It is caused by a bacteria that can spread when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks near to other people. Pertussis can affect people of all ages but infants younger than 6 months are at greatest risk for severe disease leading to hospitalization and death. The highest rates of pertussis are seen in infants who are too young to have received all their pertussis vaccines, and in teenagers 14 to 17 years old whose pertussis vaccine protection has “worn off”.


Although thousands of cases of pertussis are reported each year in California, the numbers of cases peak every 3 to 5 years. California had large increases in pertussis in 2010 (over 9,000 cases and 10 infant deaths), 2014 (almost 11,000 cases and 2 infant deaths), and 2018 cases are currently increasing. Like the rest of California, Alameda County has also had large increases in pertussis cases in 2010, 2014, and early 2018. We’ve seen the most cases this year in high school-aged children.


We are issuing this update to inform the public of the current situation and raise awareness of the steps that the public can take to protect their health.


Pertussis Facts, What to do & Resources


Dear Livermore Community,

May brings with it the opportunity for students throughout our district to show their teachers, families, and our community that they have mastered their grade level standards during this 2017-18 school year. Open Houses later this month will display projects and student work that show the depth of learning and development of critical thinking, creativity, and communication skills. I hope to see you at these great events!

The State of California provides several assessments that measure our students’ academic growth. Students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 will take tests in English Language Arts/Literacy, Mathematics, and Science. Our seniors join in the science testing this year. And high school students throughout our district are preparing for higher level Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate exams.

I am proud of the teaching and learning that takes place in our classrooms each day, and look forward to seeing the scores that showcase our students’ successes. While we know that learning is evident through many facets of our students’ growth, we also recognize that tests provide an additional, uniform way to measure and celebrate success. I encourage our students to do their best on these important indicators that show their individual growth as well as the growth of our entire district.

The success of our students is led by the excellence and dedication of our staff. Please join our Board of Trustees and me in thanking our outstanding educators, administrators, and support staff who inform, inspire, include, and innovate every day. All who work in our district make a difference in the lives of our students.

With gratitude,

Kelly Bowers, Ed.D.                          
Superintendent of Schools
