DNUSD K-8 In-Person & Distance Learning SurveySurvey Links:PLEASE NOTE: This survey is to gather information and is not a guarantee of placement.
We are approaching the halfway point of this very different 2020-2021 school year at Del Norte Unified. When we started with our In-Person and Distance Learning models of instruction in early October we stated that students in full Distance Learning may have the ability to return to In-Person instruction after the winter break. This survey is to help the District determine which students may be interested in returning to our cohort-based (Monday-Wednesday or Tuesday-Thursday) In-Person instructional model, or move from In-Person to Distance Learning. We are asking ALL TK-8 Parents to complete this survey by Monday 11/30 so we can make every effort to adjust staffing levels to accommodate possible changes in these student groups.
If your student is currently attending an In-Person cohort and you are requesting to move to Distance Learning please be aware you will be required to provide a doctor's note verifying that your student meets one of the following criteria:
1. Student is medically fragile or would be put at risk by in-person instruction, due to an underlying health condition.
2. A family member is at high risk or has an underlying health condition.
However, if your student is already attending via Distance Learning then no new documentation will be required.
Please complete one survey for each TK-8 student that is attending a Del Norte Unified School, not including Castle Rock or Uncharted Shores Academy.
REMINDER: This survey is to gather information and is not a guarantee of placement.

Mrs. Diane Wiese
Welcome to Bess Maxwell School!
I am very excited to be a part of the Bess Maxwell team!
This is my 23rd year in education and 8th year as an administrator. I have been a teacher/administrator at Joe Hamilton School, Margaret Keating School, Mountain School, Smith River School and now Bess Maxwell.
I was born and raised here in Crescent City and am very proud to call it home. After graduating from Del Norte High School, I served for three years on active duty in the Army and six years in the Air National Guard.
We here at Bess Maxwell want families to be involved in the education of their children. We welcome volunteers in the classroom - please stop in the office to find out how you can become a volunteer! We always need help in many different areas, i.e., classroom, office, and parent committees.
The Bess Maxwell staff are a warm and welcoming group of people and I look forward to meeting you.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call the office at 464-0310.
Diane Wiese, Principal
