  • Yesterday afternoon one of our buses in Klamath was involved in a minor traffic incident. A non-district vehicle unexpectedly entered the traffic flow, leading to a minor collision with our bus, which at the time, was carrying three students. No students were harmed during this incident.

    The safety and well-being of our students is our top priority. Immediate action was taken by contacting law enforcement to investigate and informing the families of the students who were on the bus at the time.

    Our transportation staff are dedicated to taking all necessary measures to ensure safety on the road, and we would like to also take this opportunity to remind everyone the importance of vigilant driving, especially in school zones and near bus routes. Should you have any questions or would like more information, please contact our Transportation Department at 707-464-0250 or by emailing communications@dnusd.org.

  • Schools to Remain Open if Buses Can Run - National Weather Service Weather Warning 2/28/2024

     

    Dear parents and guardians,

     

    The National Weather Service has issued a WINTER STORM WARNING effective from Thursday, February 29, at 4 AM, until Sunday, March 3, at 4 AM. They anticipate heavy rains, snow/hail, and strong southwest winds of 20 to 35 mph, with gusts to exceed 70 mph, affecting areas throughout Del Norte County.

     

    Ensuring the safety and health of our students is our utmost priority. The upcoming weather forecast predicts conditions that pose significant challenges, including the risk of downed trees and power lines, which may lead to widespread power outages. Additionally, travel might become difficult due to potential landslides and icy roads. Please review how these forecasted conditions may affect school operations on Thursday, February 29th, and Friday, March 1st:

     

    1. Schools Will Remain Open if Buses Can Run: Schools will continue operations provided buses can safely run and meals can be prepared for students. In the event of hazardous road conditions, specific bus routes may be canceled. We are closely monitoring the situation and will assess the weather and road conditions early in the morning at 5:00 AM. For students residing in Gasquet and Klamath, adverse weather may lead to sending students home earlier than scheduled to ensure their safety if weather conditions worsen throughout the day. Should the situation arise, we will inform parents promptly, and arrangements will be made for students to be dropped off at either Mountain School (for Gasquet students) or Margaret Keating School (for Klamath students), where they will remain under supervision until picked up by a parent or guardian.

    2. Communication in Case of Power Outages: In the event of a power outage, please stay informed by listening to KCRE 94.3 FM radio for up-to-date information. If necessary, we will send emails, text messages and make phone calls to provide information on the status of school operations. If school needs to be canceled, communications will go out at 5:30 AM in the morning. Please take a moment and confirm your child’s contact information is up to date by contacting the school office.

    3. Road Closures: In the morning, please drive safely and allow more time to travel. If you’re unable to take your children to their usual school due to road closures, please inform their school immediately and seek guidance from the school office on alternative arrangements. If alternative arrangements cannot be made, your children will be eligible for an excused absence due to hazardous driving conditions.

    4. Preparing for School Attendance: Please ensure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather conditions.

     

    We appreciate your understanding and support as we address the challenges presented by these weather conditions. Rest assured, we are diligently working with Caltrans, the California Highway Patrol, our local Office of Emergency Services, and the National Weather Service to assess the situation and ensure the safety and well-being of both our students and staff in all decisions made.

     

    Stay safe.

  • National Weather Service Weather Warning 1/30/2024

    Dear Parents and Guardians,

     

    As you may be aware, the National Weather Service has issued a HIGH WIND & RAIN WARNING effective from 7 PM this evening until 1 PM PST Wednesday. They anticipate strong southeast winds of 25 to 35 mph, with gusts up to 55 mph, particularly affecting Coast Del Norte County.

     

    Our primary concern is the safety and well-being of students. Given the forecasted conditions, which may include downed trees and power lines leading to widespread power outages and potentially challenging travel conditions, we want to inform you about the impact on school operations.

     

    1. Schools Will Remain Open if Buses Can Run: Schools will be open as long as buses are able to operate safely and food can be prepared for students. We are closely monitoring the situation and will assess the weather and road conditions early in the morning.
    2. Communication in Case of Power Outages: In the event of a power outage, please stay informed by listening to KCRE 94.3 FM radio for up-to-date information. Additionally, if necessary, we will send emails, text messages and make phone calls to provide information on the status of school operations.
    3. Road Closures: In the morning, please drive safely and allow more time to travel. If you’re unable to take your children to their usual school due to road closures, please inform their school immediately and seek guidance from the school office on alternative arrangements. If alternative arrangements cannot be made, your children will be eligible for an excused absence due to hazardous driving conditions.
    4. Preparing for School Attendance: Please ensure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather conditions.

     

    Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we navigate these challenging weather conditions. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and make decisions with the safety and well-being of our students and staff in mind.

     

    Stay safe and warm,

  • SAEBRS Screener Information for Families

    DNUSD is committed to supporting every student’s academic and social, emotional, and behavioral growth. Part of our shared goals for Del Norte students is to be able to regulate their emotions, develop positive relationships, and make responsible decisions. As part of this process, all students in 2nd-12th grade will complete a screener this winter and spring called the SAEBRS, or Social, Academic, Emotional, Behaviors Risk Screener. The screener will ask students a total of 20 questions. The student’s teacher will also complete the screener based on their observations of the students in their classrooms.  The information is confidential and will only be used by your child’s teacher, principal, school counselor, and designated district staff to determine instructional needs in the classroom and at the individual student level.  All information will remain confidential in keeping with the federal Family Education Rights and Privacy Act.

    SAEBRS Questions being asked:

    Don't hesitate to contact Lisa Howard, program specialist, at lhoward@dnusd.org, or call the school district at 464-0240 with any questions you may have.  For more information on SAEBRS visit:  https://www.illuminateed.com/products/fastbridge/social-emotional-behavior-assessment/SAEBRS/
