MB Cluster Schools Thermometer Distribution: San Diego Unified School District, with our Nursing and Wellness Department, is conducting a drive thru distribution of digital thermometers.  Distribution for families to be held at Pacific Beach Middle School on December 18 from 12:00 to 2:00 pm. Distribution will be located in the PB Middle School parking lot, located on Felspar between Ingraham and Haines streets. These thermometers were donated to the district for distribution to district families. The goal of this initiative is to ensure that families have access to thermometers to monitor health and detect illness early. The company donating the thermometers would like to collect data to track trends in illness. More information will be included with the thermometers. Thermometers are free of charge for families while supplies last. The team will distribute one thermometer per family.
