    Good Afternoon, and welcome to the Monday Update.  I’m Jeff Harris, Superintendent of Schools for Del Norte County.

     

    Heroes in Education

    Thank you to everyone that submitted their nominations for our Heroes in Education campaign. There were so many wonderful stories submitted that highlight the great work being done by our staff to help students and the community. We look forward to sharing some of those stories with you at this week’s webinar.

     

    Wednesday Webinar

    Speaking of this week’s webinar, not only will we be talking about Heroes in Education, we will also be providing an update on the feedback provided by the community regarding possible changes to our Academic Calendar for the next three school years. Be sure to tune in, and we hope to see you there. Also, in case you can't make it, you can download all of our past webinars, at dnusd.org/families under the gold section titled “Communications to Families”.

     

    Sports Update

    Over the weekend the DNHS Warriors hosted the Battle at the Border wrestling tournament and our girls' team took first place. Also, the DNHS Warriors boys wrestling team took second place behind Grants Pass. Great job, Warriors!  In upcoming sports, the boys' basketball team plays against Grants Pass tomorrow night, at 5:30 PM. Since this is a home game, we will be live streaming it at dnhigh.org, or on the DNHS Facebook page.

     

    Madrigal Dinner

    This Friday and Saturday at 6 PM are the DNHS Madrigal Dinner at the Crescent City Cultural Center, tickets are on sale now at Del Norte Office Supply for $30 a piece. There are 120 tickets available per evening so get your tickets quickly before they run out.

     

    Media Arts Calendars for Sale!

    I also want to let you know that our media arts career and technical education program and Del Norte High photography classes have completed their annual calendar filled with student photography.  If you're interested in purchasing one, or several, they are available at Del Norte Office Supply or in the front office at Del Norte High School for the low price of $10.00.  All proceeds go to the Del Norte media arts and photography programs.

     

    COVID-19 Update

    For our COVID-19 update, in case you didn’t hear our update last week, the Del Norte Public Health Officer issued modified masking orders that allow for weekly testing in place of masking, when actively participating in indoor sporting events. You can find the entire order on the front page of DNUSD.org.  CDPH also issued additional updates to indoor sports and music just before Thanksgiving, and we’ve asked for clarification on several points and are waiting for a response from the state.

    Last week the COVID-19 Active Cases Dashboard was on pause, but we are restarting it this week. You can look forward to that update tomorrow at noon. To find the most recent information and metrics by school site on COVID-19 positive cases, please visit dnusd.org/familyresources and click the “COVID-19 Dashboard.” Likewise, to see our county data, you can visit covid19.dnco.org.

     

    That's it for this week’s update, we hope you have a great day and we will see you next week.

     

    Thank you

    Good Afternoon, and welcome to the Monday Update.  I’m Jeff Harris, Superintendent of Schools for Del Norte County.

     

    Dates to Remember

    We hope you had a relaxing and safe Thanksgiving break. Speaking of breaks, make sure and mark the Winter Break on your calendars, there will be no school between December 20th to December 31st.

     

    Heroes in Education - Nominations STILL Open!

    Don't forget to nominate a Hero in Education! It is often the case in education that staff work tirelessly to have a positive impact on the lives of students, but in the end, they still wonder if they made a real difference in someone's life. That is why it is SO important to share your story of the positive impact a staff member had on YOU by nominating a hero in education! A hero may be any staff member that works for the school district in any capacity and has positively impacted the life of a student, staff member, or community member. You can find the nomination form on the front page of DNUSD.org.

     

    Sports Update

    Last Friday the DNHS Warriors Football Varsity team played against San Marin High in the Division finals but were not victorious. Even though we lost the division, the Warriors had a 10-2 record and took the H-DNL Big 4 crown. Great job Warriors.

     

    Crescent Elk Auditorium Renovation Grand Opening

    Also last Friday, many from around the community attended the Crescent Elk Renovation Grand Opening and enjoyed a variety of performances from our students, a local Jazz Quintet, and the saxophone prodigy, Jacob Scesney, from the popular band Postmodern Jukebox. During that event the development of a brand new performing arts center for our community was announced. You will definitely be hearing more about this as time goes on, and we are all very excited to watch this unfold.

     

    Bi-Weekly Wednesday Webinar

    Our next webinar will be on Wednesday, December 8th. You can, though, download all of our past webinars, at dnusd.org/families under the gold section titled “Communications to Families”.
