E. coli Alert
Across the county there have been a number of confirmed E. coli cases that have been tracked to the Milk Makers Festival held at the NW Washington Fairgrounds last week.  Many of our 1st grade elementary students attended this event.  
Please be sure you know the systems to watch for and the steps you should take.
