Last night the Governor of California issued a stay at home order for all Californians. While we know that the current situation may cause some anxiety, please know that, we will continue to support our students, their families, and our community by continuing to provide alternative learning opportunities, guidance to families on local resources, programs to help our first responders, healthcare and essential services workers find childcare so that they can continue to serve our community, seamless food deliveries to youth from 0-18 years old, and other services that will be necessary in the upcoming days and weeks. Our goal is to keep our community safe and healthy. Thank you, in advance, for your help and patience, as we work through this unprecedented time.

Welcome to Del Norte Community School, Home of the Ospreys!
We believe all students are capable of success. Our goal is to identify and address the needs and strengths of each student in a safe, respectful academic environment. We encourage students to pursue their academic goals with their individual interests in mind. At Community School, daily attendance is extremely important, homework is available for all students, and good behavior is expected by everyone.
School attendance is mandatory until the age of 18, and many of our students have attendance contracts. There are direct correlations between school attendance, student performance, and success. With instructional time of only 4 hours per day, full-time attendance is very important for students to work with teachers and staff. If your student is going to miss school, please call office staff or make arrangements for independent study school work.
Students work on a variety of subjects each day, and homework assignments are available. All students work at their own pace. Assignments can and should be done outside of school hours. A student is never truly done with their work until they have a diploma.
Behavior and attendance are common reasons for students to attend Del Norte Community School. Our school is designed to provide individualized support with behavior, social and emotional skills and of course, academics. As all schools in the County and District, our three main rules are to be safe, respectful, and responsible. Additionally, this is a closed campus. An initial enrollment meeting is required to attend Community School. Individual needs concerning behavior and academics are addressed and goals are set during the initial enrollment meeting.
