I will give one class makeup for a blood donation quarter, or, if you can't donate blood, two hours of work at the De Anza blood drive.
Read Blood donation FAQs to learn about donating. Show me the 'receipt'
they give you after the donation, dated this quarter,
before the last day of class.
De Anza College home games usually has the dates of the campus blood drives as well links to student recitals, dance performances and art exhibitions.

How to tell if the lifeguards are doing their job properly
The aim of this page is to provide swimmers, parents, child care providers and other swimming pool patrons with a few guidelines to help them determine if the lifeguards at the pool they go to are doing their jobs properly.
Many of my students ask me if I can teach their children to swim.
De Anza only has swim classes for teens and adults. For swim classes for kids (infants, toddlers or children, ages 3 months to 7 years), I recommend Sharky's Swim School in San Jose. The owner is a graduate of De Anza lifeguard training, with 20 plus years of experience teaching babies and young children to swim. The pool is kept at 92 degrees so you and your baby won't be cold.

I recommend that if they have the time, all my swim students should also take PE 70/71, and use the Lifetime Fitness and Wellness Center.

When you call 911 from a land line telephone, such as in your house,
you get dispatch for the city the phone (your house) is located in.
When you call 911 from a cell phone
you get the Highway Patrol at a central location.
Sometimes, especially if you are not calling about something
on the freeway/highway, it would be faster to get dispatch
for the specific city the problem is happening in.
This requires knowing the direct dial seven digit phone number
for each dispatch. In Cupertino, the number to get help quicker is 299-2311.
Direct dial emergency phone numbers for most cities in Santa Clara County, California, can be found at the Santa Clara County ARES/RACES (Amateur Radio Emergency Services/Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Services) website.
