westnileCounty West Nile Virus Update
Fresh bird or tree squirrel carcasses should be reported

Two dead American crows, one collected from Atherton and another collected from Redwood City, recently tested positive for West Nile virus (WNV). This is the first indication of the presence of WNV in San Mateo County in 2016.
While the risk of human West Nile virus infection in San Mateo County remains low, reports of dead birds are an early indication that the virus is circulating in the environment. Residents are encouraged to report fresh carcasses of birds or tree squirrels to the California West Nile Virus Hotline at or by phone at (877) WNV-BIRD or (877) 968-2473.
For assistance with a mosquito problem in San Mateo County, contact the District at (650) 344- 8592. For more information on West Nile Virus and other District services, visit the San Mateo County Mosquito & Vector Control District on the web at:

Burlingame Parks & Recreation's summer musical camp is delighted to present yet another entertaining musical production for the whole family.

The gang is back for an action-packed summer extravaganza with High School Musical 2. Jras Troy (Skyler Mallow), Gabriella (Laurel Brown) and the rest of the Wildcats finish junior year and blast onto the summer scene. At the Lava Springs Country Club, popular-girl Sharpay (Samantha Johnstone) reigns supreme while the Wildcats get to work - literally! Sharpay's brother, Ryan (Patrick Lucey), bridges the conflict between the waring factions. Featuring every ounce of the light-hearted fun that made High School Musical a household name, this buoyant sequel follows our East High favorites as they face the realities of the adult world and begin to grow up. Friendships are tested, summer romances go haywire, and the meaning of success is redefined.

This production is free and open to the public - no tickets are necessary.Cathy Foxhoven is the Director, with John Collaros musically directing and Kim Kohli created the choreography. It features 36 Burlingame/Hillsborough/San Mateo students, ages 8-14. For more information, e-mail, or call (650) 697-6936.
