    Dear Smith River School Families,

    I want to start by saying that the health and safety of our students and staff is our top priority.
    Yesterday, we had to place four of our student cohorts in distance learning due to the fact that they had come in close contact with a student or staff member that tested positive for COVID-19. We have already contacted these families and will continue to update them as new information becomes available. Smith River is a small community and a close family, which we all care about. In order to be transparent with our school community it is important for everyone to know that many of our students at Smith River School may have had close contact with students from those four cohorts that have been in close contact with a person who has tested positive for COVID 19. At this time, none of these students are currently known to be infected.

    DNC Public Health has been notified and is taking further steps. In accordance with DNC Public Health guidance, all other classroom cohorts at Smith River School will continue to operate. The individual and their immediate family/household members are monitoring symptoms and are working with their healthcare provider for additional steps including testing if advised.

    We will update you with any additional pertinent information when we receive it. Please continue to monitor your child for symptoms and stay home if you are experiencing influenza-like illness. Please contact your healthcare provider if you have any additional questions or concerns about your child health. However, if you have any questions or concerns about your child’s education please feel free to contact me at 707-464-0370.


    Sincerely,
    Nicole Cochran
    Principal

    Estimadas familias de la escuela Smith River:

    Quiero comenzar diciendo que la salud y seguridad de nuestros estudiantes y personal es nuestra máxima prioridad. Ayer, tuvimos que colocar cuatro de nuestros grupos de estudiantes en educación a distancia debido al hecho de que habían estado en contacto cercano con un estudiante o miembro del personal que dio positivo por COVID-19. Ya nos hemos puesto en contacto con estas familias y continuaremos actualizando con nueva información disponible. Smith River es una pequeña comunidad y una familia unida, que nos importa a todos. Para ser transparentes con nuestra comunidad escolar, es importante que todos sepan que muchos de nuestros estudiantes en la escuela de Smith River pueden haber tenido un contacto cercano con estudiantes de esas cuatro cohortes que han estado en contacto cercano con una persona que dio positivo en COVID 19. En este momento, no se sabe que ninguno de estos estudiantes esté infectado.

    Salud Pública de DNC ha sido notificado y está tomando medidas adicionales. De acuerdo con la guía de Salud Pública de DNC, todas las demás cohortes de aulas de la Escuela de Smith River seguirán funcionando. El individuo y su familia inmediata / miembros del hogar están monitoreando los síntomas y están trabajando con su proveedor de atención médica para obtener pasos adicionales, incluido tomar una prueba, si se recomienda.

    Lo actualizaremos con cualquier información adicional pertinente cuando la recibamos. Continúe monitoreando a su hijo para detectar síntomas y quédese en casa si tiene una enfermedad similar a la influenza. Comuníquese con su proveedor de atención médica si tiene preguntas o inquietudes adicionales sobre la salud de su hijo. Sin embargo, si tiene alguna pregunta o inquietud sobre la educación de su hijo, no dude en comunicarse conmigo al 707-464-0370.


    Atentamente,
    Nicole Cochran
    Directora

Welcome, Bienvenido, Daa-naa∼-yash to Smith River Elementary School,

 

First, I would like to say that it is a privilege to be the principal of this school. I am currently in my 14th year as an educator in Del Norte Schools. I have appreciatively worked as a teacher and administrator at Smith River Elementary School and at Crescent Elk Middle School. Before my career in education, I proudly served 10 years in the Armed Forces. I am a mother of three children; one of whom graduated 8th grade from Smith River. Therefore, I can truly say that this school is filled with amazing staff, students, and family members, who work hard to support student learning through excitement, curiosity, exploration, and growth. 

 

The Smith River community is truly a special place to raise a child. We welcome parent involvement in educating their children. Children are more successful if parents and the school work as a team to support student learning. We offer a variety of ways for you to be involved in your child’s education. Please come in to find out how you can become a volunteer at Smith River. 

 

As a staff, we are warm and welcoming to all and provide children with the love and respect that you would give your own children. I look forward to getting to know all of you and if ever you need help with your child’s education; I want to remind you that I am here to serve you and I have an open-door policy when needed.

 

Go Wildcats!

 

Sincerely, 

 

Nicole Cochran

Principal 

Smith River Elementary
