Canfield Middle School: a pop up military vax clinic at school. How convenient.
The nation’s fifth-largest school district, in Clark County, Nevada, is opening back up after 18 students committed suicide during the pandemic shutdown.
Administrators of the system, of which Las Vegas is a part, said they’d also had another “3,100 alerts of suicide risks or students in need of support through the district’s mental health monitoring system.”
Students deemed high-risk will first be evaluated and invited back to in-person learning based on their academic and social-emotional needs, Bakersfield Now reported. The New York Times also did a story on the deaths. “When we started to see the uptick in children taking their lives, we knew it wasn’t just the COVID numbers we need to look at anymore,” Clark County Superintendent Jesus Jara told The Times.
A surge in youth suicides has been seen across the U.S. Some schools, like those in Las Vegas, have been closed more than a year.
Sprint has shut down a 5G cell phone tower amid an outpouring of concerns over recent cancer cases. Ripon elementary school parents have long suspected that the tower is responsible for several cancer cases in students and staff. Ripon Unified School District confirmed that the tower is now turned off. Sprint will now look to relocate that 5G tower. Last March, many of these same parents accused the school district of accepting kickbacks in exchange for supporting 5G towers near the school.
All in all, three teachers and four students have been battling various cancers since 2016. Two preschool-age children have been diagnosed with a malignant tumor and leukemia. Another family claims that their 22-year-old son who attended the school had a brain tumor surgically removed.
“I think it is admirable,” Monica Ferrulli, a Ripon parent who has long fought Sprint’s 5G tower, said to the Modesto Bee. “I was actually very hopeful at first but after going to school district meetings I had lost a lot of hope. We have eliminated one factor that could cause the students to be unsafe.”

We see these towers in schools here in NZ. Not rocket science is it? Where is the precautionary principle?
From the article:
“Monica Ferrulli, whose son was treated for brain cancer in 2017, said RUSD has cited an obsolete American Cancer Society study in keeping the tower in place since the controversy erupted two years ago. “It is just denial,” Ferrulli told the board. She vowed that parents will continue to fight and keep their children out of the school.”
The Ripon Unified School District said it is talking with a telecommunications company about moving a cellular phone tower from Weston Elementary School because of a public uproar over cancer cases at the campus.
A fourth child who attends the school was diagnosed with cancer Friday. Some parents pulled their children from school, and many came out in force to a Ripon school board meeting Monday evening to demand action.
In a prepared statement, board president Kit Oase said tests done on the tower found it was operating normally within safety standards.
