  • 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,

  • Crescent Elk Employee Update 1/11/24

     

    This morning, prior to the beginning of the work day, a teacher from Crescent Elk Middle School was detained by the Del Norte County Sheriff. 

     

    The Sheriff confirmed that the alleged actions leading to the arrest did not occur at the school, were not related to the school, were not connected to this staff member's employment with the District, and did not appear to involve any student within our county. We are fully cooperating with the Sheriff’s Office.

     

    Our immediate focus is on the well-being of our students and staff. Counseling services will be available at the school to support students and staff. Additionally, a substitute teacher will be secured for the classroom for the foreseeable future.

     

    For questions or additional information, please contact Sgt. McClaflin at the Del Norte County Sheriff's Office at 464-4191 or access the Sheriff’s Online Information System on their website.
