"Equipping Students for Success"


  • Superintendent's Message to the Community 6-21-2021


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


    It was great seeing students, their families, and community members in person at the Del Norte High Graduation last Wednesday. That was without a doubt, the best and most memorable gathering of the year, and it was very apparent that everyone was happy to be able to attend in person. Graduation photos will be available on the Del Norte High website and Facebook pages, if you are unable to find your student’s graduation photos, please email


    In looking forward to next year, we have started to receive guidance from the state, from both the state department of public health and Cal OSHA, regarding changes to COVID health and safety requirements. Most guidance has been in regards to employees, but there has also been some movement around masking for students.  For the time being, all students and staff in our summer school programs are required to wear masks.  The California Department of Public Health will be issuing new guidance once the CDC has updated their school guidelines, which will hopefully be this week. I would like to invite everyone to our webinar this week on Wednesday at 1 PM to go over some of the new requirements and guidelines and take a deeper dive into what this could mean for the upcoming school year.


    Our Seamless Summer food program is also officially underway.  If you aren’t familiar with the program, we provide meals every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday through August 13.  Meals are available from 10:30 am to 12:00 pm, again, on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at a variety of locations across the county, including in the Klamath community, all of which you can find listed at All children and youth ages 18 and under will be provided two days of meals on each service day. 


    Finally,  with school officially over, all student devices should have been returned last Friday.  If for some reason you were unable to return your child’s device to their school, you can drop it off at the district office, which is located next to the football field on Washington boulevard.


    I hope that your summer is off to a great start.  We’ll continue to update you on guidance changes, local and state mandates, and other information as the summer progresses. 


    Thank you
