Announcements

  • Good afternoon,

    We are making some changes to our video conferencing tool, Zoom, in order to provide an even higher level of security for our students and staff. Effective tomorrow, Friday, September 18, all students will need to authenticate to their DNCOE Zoom account using the Single Sign-On (SSO) option with their District-provided @mydnschools.org email address. When your students attempt to join their Zoom classes they may now be prompted to log in - make sure they type in "DNCOE" for the domain, then they'll be directed to authenticate using their existing student email address and password.

    As always our IT Department is here to help. Should you experience any issues please call our Family Support Hotline at 707-464-7005. We are still experiencing very high call volumes, so if we don't answer immediately please leave a clear message on how to reach you, and we'll get back to you just as soon as possible. That support number again, 707-464-7005.

    Thank you so much for your support and understanding as we continue to ensure the best and most secure experience is being provided for your students.

  • Superintendent's Message to the Community 9-14-2020

    • DNUSD wants to thank Frontier Communications and the California Emerging Technology Fund for providing 200 devices to our 6th-grade students at Crescent Elk.
    • DNUSD is planning on providing the community with as accurate of a timeline as we possibly can for students returning to school in phases 2 & 3. These timelines heavily depend on materials and supplies arriving for safety and sanitation. We will be issuing more communications as soon as possible regarding this issue.

  • Superintendent's Special Message to the Community 9-11-2020

     

     

    As you know, in August, the Board approved a gradual return to in-person learning that would have moved us into Phase 2 this next Monday, September 14. Phase 2 consists of continued distance learning for all students with groups not to exceed 14 students returning for in-person instruction and/or support. Students included in these first groups to return are those receiving intensive special education services and those students most at-risk, including foster youth, homeless youth, English learners, high school students who are significantly credit deficient, and students with no internet access.
    To safely and effectively move into Phase 2, the District needs to have personal protective equipment, disinfecting supplies, and family screening tools available. We currently have most of the PPE needed to begin working in person with students. Our Facilities and Maintenance department began ordering supplies in April and May, but as of this week, we have still not received critical supplies, including disinfecting spray and disinfecting wipes for every classroom. Now fires and road closures are further impacting our ability to get supplies. In addition, we will need every family to screen their child at home prior to sending them to school. We have a very simple, easy app to assist our families in this process. Unfortunately, we have had difficulty in working with the company providing the app. It was originally supposed to be available on Monday, August 31, but we are now told that it will most likely be closer to September 18.
    We will be moving the tentative date to begin bringing students back in person in Phase 2 to September 21, but our goal remains to open Phase 3 by October 5. Over the next week, families will be contacted to set up these small groups and to provide information regarding transportation, cohort times, safety protocols, etc. We will also be hosting two family training events on universal precautions and student safety: Wednesday, September 16 at 5:00 p.m. and Thursday, September 17 at 9:00 a.m. We will be recording the Wednesday session and posting it by Thursday afternoon for families to view at their convenience. We will also be working to provide the same information in Hmong and Spanish. A mailer will be sent home with information regarding universal precautions and how to safely re-enter school.
    I’d like to thank everyone for their patience and cooperation as our staff continues to overcome challenges and obstacles and strives to ensure that each child receives the best education possible in the current situation.

  • We are planning on opening school tomorrow, calmer winds, and shifting weather patterns may move the fire away from Gasquet as well as reduce smoke and particles in Del Norte. If there is any change in school opening tomorrow, we will send an all call, post on our website, and on our additional communication channels.

    Any students that are displaced and unable to attend school tomorrow, their absence will be excused.

    Mountain Elementary School will remain closed, students at Moutain school that are not displaced can still do school work through Seesaw, Google Classroom, and email.

  • Student Zoom Issues 8-31-2020

    As you know, today was our first day of virtual learning, and most of the issues that we dealt with had to do with devices or supporting students in logging into their classrooms. We did, however, have one instance of a student sharing inappropriate images from their personal cell phone, through their webcam, to an online classroom. All district computers operate under the same filtering system and are as safe as using computers at school. We take such disruptions seriously and are investigating the situation. We will take all necessary and appropriate disciplinary action. We are also in the process of adding an additional layer of security into our Zoom environment. This will limit Zoom use only to those within the district’s email domains and eliminate any outside participants, which means that students will have to use their school email addresses to join all Zoom meetings.

    Contrary to what may have been shared on social media, our system was not hacked or hijacked. As of now, we have been told and believe that this was an isolated incident. Our goal is to have virtual school as safe as in-person school.

  • Devices, Internet Access, and the First Day of School

    Tomorrow, 8/31/2020 is the first day of school for district students, and as a friendly reminder school will begin in distance learning. Del Norte Unified School District has distributed over 2200 student devices throughout the county and has had up to 1000 devices on order since the spring, but we are still 400 devices short for our students. As student devices continue to arrive they will be set up by our IT department and distributed by school sites immediately.

     

    DNUSD Parent Tech Hotline: (707) 464-7005

    Parent Tech Support Email - parenthelp@dnusd.org

     

    We understand that not all students will have access to a device, or even the internet. If you are one of those affected families, here is some information that may be helpful:

     

    -If you have no device or internet access and need a paper packet, please contact your school site principal

     

    -Not all students will have school-issued devices on the first day of school, but any device in a child’s home may be used temporarily to attend class (computer, Chromebook, tablet, phone, landline phone)

     

    -Free and reduced-cost internet, along with deals on devices provided from various vendors can be found at dnusd.org/families (DNUSD.org/families is in the process of being revamped today, and may appear under construction throughout the day 8/30/2020, check back by 6 PM)

     

    -If a household does not have a device, but they have access to a phone, they can call into their child’s class zoom session, contact your school site for more information

     

    -The Zoom app can be downloaded on a smartphone to be used during synchronous learning sessions

     

    Additional Information 

    -Devices have been on order since March and April

    -We have 1000 devices currently on order

    -2200 devices have been distributed to students

    -Wireless access points for school parking lots where families can connect for internet access are on order and will be available soon.

    -We hoped to be able to meet student device needs by pushing school back a week, but we will still be short 400 student devices on the first day of school. As we get more devices they will be distributed to students.

  • DNUSD Lottery #2 Transfers & Unnaproved Intradistrict Transfers from Lottery #1 on Hold
    Due to the current enrollment situation in Del Norte Schools, intradistrict transfers for the Second Lottery and those not approved from the first waitlist, will NOT be determined until after school has started.  We apologize for this delay, however, enrollment at school sites is still fluctuating and the district cannot determine which sites have space available at this time.  All students with an unapproved intradistrict transfer request will continue to be enrolled in their zone school until the district has determined which transfers can be accommodated.

  • DNUSD Schools to Begin in Distance Learning

    As you are all aware, the ability of the District to bring students back into our classrooms is based on Executives Orders by Governor Newsom, guidance and letters from the California Department of Public Health, and guidance from Cal OSHA.  The Del Norte County Unified Board of Trustees met yesterday from 1:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. to discuss one item:  how to reopen school this year.  During this special board meeting, the school board heard the recommendation for school reopening, based on state guidance*, the District's ability to implement that guidance, and the need to involve parents and staff in complex problem solving, listened to parents, staff, and community members for almost two hours of public comment, and ultimately took action to direct that school** will begin as follows:
    • Phase 1 through September 11, 2020, for All
    • Phase 2 through October 2, 2020, for All
    • Phase 3 beginning October 5, 2020, for K-8, and Phase 2 for DNHS
    * Transition between these phases would require that the County of Del Norte is not on the State watch list at the time of transition and that the transition is supported by the local public health officer based on COVID-19 epidemiological data, as required by CDPH.
     
    **Del Norte Community School and Castle Rock are not included in this plan  
     
    For more information on learning options in Del Norte county, please visit www.dnusd.org/learningoptions.
     
    Our schools will, in all likelihood, continue to transition between phases throughout the year, in response to data surrounding COVID-19 and State directive.  Our goal is and will continue to be to maximize student learning and wellness to the greatest extent possible, regardless of the phase of learning.

  • Distance Learning Registration / In-School Schedule Request Form

    We are asking that all parents fill out one of the following forms, one if you plan to pursue 100% distance learning for your child, or the other if you plan on your child being physically in school as part of the blended learning model.

     

    In-School Student Schedule Request Form

    After reviewing the surveys, talking with staff and parents, and discussing the impact on operations, the planning for Phase 3 model will reflect:  Cohort A (50% of students) attending on Monday & Wednesday, Cohort B (the remaining 50%) attending on Tuesday & Thursday, and all students engaging in distance learning on Friday and on the days that they are not physically in school.

  • School Board Approves Phase 3 Plan - 2 Days In School, 3 Days at Home Per Week

     
    Since late May/early June, certificated, classified, and administrative staff, along with students, parents, and community members have been providing input on re-opening options for schools.  There have been multiple meetings at school sites (prior to the end of the year), steering committee meetings, Board meetings, surveys, etc. to discuss data and make recommendations.  We also know that our current situation with COVID-19 is very fluid.  As a result, we developed a "Continuum of Educational Phases" for the 2020-2021 school year (attached to this email).  In this continuum, we link what school may look like with the California Resiliency Roadmap.  In the continuum, you'll see that our educational programs this coming year could vary, at any time, between full distance and full in-person, depending on orders from the Governor, and guidance/mandates from California Department of Public Health, California Department of Education, and the Del Norte County Public Health Officer.
     
    Given the information that we currently have, we anticipate that school will most likely begin in Phase 3- Blended Learning.  Last night the Board took action to approve a general model for Phase 3, which was to provide 2 days per week of in-person learning for all K-8 students, who attend schools within the Del Norte County USD, and 3 days per week of distance learning for all K-8 students in DNCUSD.  This does not include Castle Rock, Community, or Elk Creek.  The Board also allowed high schools to work with families, students, and staff to develop a model that works for their unique needs.
     
    What the Board did not do was to determine what the start of school would be.  Given the quickly changing COVID-19 landscape, some districts set for full re-open have now completely closed and others set for full or partial closure have completely re-opened.  We will work with our local public health officer, rely on legal requirements and mandates, and ultimately, make a final decision on which phase we will utilize when school re-opens.  I anticipate the final re-opening phase decision will be made no later than the first week of August.  It is important to know, too, that the district will be offering a full year, distance learning option for families whose children cannot attend in person due to COVID-19 reasons
     
    Over the next three weeks, we will work with both bargaining units, interested staff, parents, students, site administrators, Board members, and others to plan for, negotiate, and implement a safe and successful Phase 3 potential re-opening. 
     
    Thank you, all, for your suggestions, ideas, and patience, as we all navigate these new waters.

  • School Re-Opening Survey
    Spanish Survey Link: https://forms.gle/yQfLTyfpYUSd5YbB8
    English Survey Link: https://forms.gle/xmC6PTNfTsZoPwZo6

    Due to restrictions and health recommendations for school reopening for the 2020-2021 academic year, the District is anticipating only being able to have 1/2 of our students in attendance at any given time, when school facilities are open. We have also heard from some of our families that they would prefer a fully online learning model.

    DNUSD Staff has been discussing options and working together to identify the best way to ensure that we continue to educate our students and provide them with the supports that they need to the fullest extent possible. By completing this survey, you will be helping us to more fully understand the system that works best for you and your child, as well as barriers that need to be addressed as we move toward opening our schools next year.

    We understand that this survey is lengthy, but your opinions and ideas are very important to us. Thank you, in advance, for your time and thoughtfulness in answering the following questions.

    The survey is designed for general feedback from all families. Families of high school and middle school students may receive additional opportunities to provide feedback on those programs.

  • Virtual Learning Program Flyer Correction Letter

    Today, a message was posted on the DNUSD webpage and Facebook page regarding the Del Norte Virtual Learning Program flyer. On behalf of the District, I would like to personally apologize for any misunderstanding regarding this post.

    Results from the 1st Remote Learning Survey:
    https://drive.google.com/…/1i3zOozC2E1A-U22SY9yXODyfAY…/view

    I would like to clarify the following:
    1. The District is not planning on only offering online learning for the 2020-2021 school year. At this point, we are expecting to be able to return with at least 50% of our students in attendance on campus at any given time. Del Norte Unified School District will open schools in the traditional format that we have always done if we are permitted to by Local and State Departments of Public Health. In a previous survey, 65% of our families indicated that they would prefer that school be offered fully in person, as we have always done, while an additional 25% indicated that they would prefer a blended learning model.

    2. That same survey indicated that approximately 10% of our families expressed an interest in participating only in online or distance learning. In order to move forward with determining whether this option is viable, it is necessary that we get an accurate count of students, by grade level and school of residence, as quickly as possible. This “application” was designed as a way to get this information for planning purposes only.

    3. I have been meeting with the leadership of the Del Norte Teachers’ Association and the local California School Employees Association on a steering committee to discuss issues and options in reopening for 2020-2021. We have discussed the desire and survey results for an online program, but no discussion has been held regarding this “application” or a final configuration of an online program.

    4. We are in the process of completing a survey for all district staff and families to gather additional information regarding the three reopening options that the steering committee, site principals, and other consulting groups have discussed: an in-person AM/PM model with 50% of students in attendance at either session, a two day per week in-person model with 50% of students in attendance 2 days each week with distance learning occurring during days when they are not receiving in-person instruction, and the distance learning-only model.

    5. Given the confusion caused by the post and the need to more accurately reflect the intent of the form, we will be revising the current document and reposting it so that it better meets its intended purpose. To avoid continuing confusion, we will “expire” the post, so that only the corrected version is available. The updated document will be available in Spanish, as well.

    I would, again, like to apologize for any confusion that these posts may have caused. In an attempt to gather information quickly, we did not communicate clearly or adequately. We have just over 40 days in which to rethink 100 years of educational structure and respond to the most significant health crisis in recent history, prior to the start of the school year. Thank you for your understanding and patience as we move through this process.

    Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact my office at 464-0200.

    Jeff Harris
    Superintendent

  • PRESS RELEASE:

    The Del Norte County Unified School District and Del Norte County Office of Education have reached a tentative agreement with the local California School Employees Association (CSEA). Upon completion of the CSEA 610 process, which is the process for approval by both local members and the state CSEA office, classified staff will receive a 3% increase retroactive to July 1, 2019, as well as a $100.00 increase on the health and welfare bringing the annual District contribution for classified employees to $9,600.00.

    The Board also recognizes that we are in unprecedented times and that the classified staff is on the frontlines of keeping our schools safe and clean, our students fed, our technology viable, and our daily operations functioning. While there will be a need to address ongoing costs in future budgets in light of our current economic situation, this year, in consideration of the extraordinary services rendered, the Board has also authorized a one time 0.5% pay supplement for all CSEA members.

While we know that the current situation may cause some anxiety, please know that, we will continue to support our students, their families, and our community by continuing to provide alternative learning opportunities, guidance to families on local resources, programs to help our first responders, healthcare and essential services workers find childcare so that they can continue to serve our community, seamless food deliveries to youth from 0-18 years old, and other services that will be necessary in the upcoming days and weeks. Our goal is to keep our community safe and healthy. Thank you, in advance, for your help and patience, as we work through this unprecedented time.
