In early-December, the California Department of Food and
Agriculture notified Sacramento Country Day School that it has
quarantined certain produce as a result of an Oriental Fruit Fly
infestation in Sacramento. The quarantine does not affect the
safety of the listed fruits and vegetables, just the way in which
they are handled and transported.
In order to stop the spread of the fruit fly infestation, Country
Day will not be permitted to donate any item on the quarantine
list to River City Food Bank or allow students, employees or
community members to take those items outside of the quarantine
zone. Quarantined items may still be consumed on campus. The
quarantine is projected to last through May 2019.
Country Day Garden Coordinator Michael Covey and Middle School
Science Teacher Aleitha Burns have adjusted garden operations in
accordance with the quarantine with minimal impact to the school.
A complete list of quarantined items is available
More information about this quarantine, including a detailed map
of the quarantine zone, is available on the California Department
of Food and Agriculture’s website.
From our social emotional learning curriculum to our commitment
to “student centered” pathways, Country Day’s dynamic
Pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade program is one of the best
investments in your child’s future you will ever make.

Sacramento Country Day School will host its 8th Annual Turkey
Drive benefiting Sacramento Food Bank and Family Services.
Initiated by the Class of 2019 as fifth grade students in
2011, Country Day’s Annual Turkey Drive has become a special
annual school-wide community giving tradition.
Each year, Country Day collects turkeys to provide a Thanksgiving

morning drop off. The Turkey Drive has come a long way
since its first year, when it collected 101 turkeys. In 2017,
Country Day families donated an impressive 446 turkeys and
$1,660 in cash donations. This year, students have set the goal
of collecting 500 turkeys during the drive.
