  • Superintendent's Message to the Community 7-26-2021


    Good Afternoon, and welcome to the Monday Update. I’m Jeff Harris, the Superintendent for Del Norte Unified School District and the Del Norte County Office of Education. 


    Well, it’s been a while!  I hope that everyone’s having a great summer so far.


    One of the most urgent issues that we’re facing right now is the need for staff.  I want to let everyone in our community know that we are hiring quite a few new positions throughout the district to support our students in the upcoming school year. If you or someone you know may be interested please visit


    Another important piece of the new legislation is that parents of high school students or students ages 18 or older who attended high school last year may request a grade change for the courses taken in the 2020-21 school year, in order to accommodate students who struggled with distance learning during the pandemic. Parents should meet with their child’s principal and teacher to discuss their options. The change request form is available on the Del Norte High School website, at 


    Finally, I know that there has been some confusion out there based on what has been put out by the state regarding masks.   Many of you are already aware that the State has recently released guidance that requires masks to be worn inside school facilities when students are present.  CDPH, though, has said that local schools should determine how to enforce the mandate.   We’re still trying to get clarification about the mandate and discussing legal requirements.  If you would like to learn more about this we encourage you to join us on August 4th during our next weekly webinar where we will dive into current guidance, documentation, and what it means for the upcoming school year.


    Again, I hope that your summer is off to a great start, and we’ll continue to update you on local and state mandates and other information regarding the beginning of school as the summer progresses.
