• Is There a Cover Up at La Cañada Elementary?


    by Winston Chua
    At least one case of tuberculosis was recently discovered at La Cañada’s Paradise Canyon Elementary School, prompting the L.A. County Department of Health to issue the following statement:
    “The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health is investigating a single case of tuberculosis at Paradise Canyon Elementary School. We continue to work closely with the La Cañada Flintridge Unified School District to identify any students or staff who may have had close contact with the individual and are offering them free testing and treatment as needed. Because of medical confidentiality and privacy, Public Health will not comment on the details of individual case or their contacts.”

    La Cañada Unified Supt. Wendy Sinnette told the Tribune that one of her students “had exposure to an out-of-district student and the department indicated that our student didn’t need to be removed from the classroom because the risk was negligible or non-existent.”

    Sinnette said the case is “an isolated one” and that in order to alleviate parental concerns, the school is having the outreach meeting at the multipurpose room of the elementary school perhaps as early as Tuesday evening.
