Laguna Beach High School may install four security cameras in and around the administration building so officials can refer to video after a break-in or theft. The Laguna Beach Unified School District board approved the cameras on a first reading at its Oct. 8 meeting. The hope is that the cameras, which will be on only during non-school hours, will deter potential thieves while providing evidence if a crime occurs, Supt. Sherine Smith said. "They are intended to enhance campus security; we've had vandalism at the high school," she said.

Laguna Beach High School athletic officials have another tool to gauge whether an athlete is ready to return to the game after a hit to the head. For the first time, students in all sports, including dance team members, will take a computer test to assess mental capabilities such as concentration, memory and reaction time. Each athlete will receive a baseline reading, which can then be used to compare test results following a concussion. Laguna Beach High trainer Ron Holaday helped test about 260 athletes before the fall sports season.

Faculty and staff from the founding years of Thurston Middle School — a time when the school introduced an innovative curriculum — are gathering for a reunion Oct. 26. "It was quite a close family and everyone was really tight," Gail McClain, who taught English at Thurston for 37 years, said of the Laguna Beach school's earliest employees. Thurston Middle School opened in 1968 for seventh and eight graders and was a lab for an experimental curriculum that had students making their own schedules and picking their own classes each week.
