School Information for School on 10/5/2020

A Message from DNUSD

Just a few reminders as we prepare to welcome students back to school in-person on Monday, October 5:

All transitional kindergarten through 8th-grade schools and the Smith River preschool will begin in-person cohorts this week.  You should have been contacted by your child’s school to let you know if they were attending the M/W or T/Th cohort.  Students participating in distance learning should have been notified as well.  Sunset High, Community School, and state preschools will continue to operate as they have this week. 

DNHS will continue to offer distance learning to 9-12 grade students.  DNHS is currently in the process of designing and creating afternoon, in-person learning cohorts and will communicate with students and parents when those students will begin physically attending school.

All students attending in person will be required to bring a completed self-screening form with them to enter the bus, school, or classroom. These screeners have been mailed to each student’s home.  A copy of the screener can also be found at www.dnusd.org/familyresources, printed, and sent with your child.  Children who do not bring a screening form will be screened at school and might be sent home if they are presenting COVID-like symptoms.

All students are required to wear a face-covering when riding the bus, walking through campus, or in any public space on campus.  Students from the age of 2 through 2nd grade are not required to wear face coverings in the classroom, but wearing a face-covering is strongly encouraged and will be taught as an important way to keep the classroom healthy.  Buses, schools, and classrooms will also have face coverings for students if they do not bring one with them.  Face coverings include cloth face coverings, disposable, exam-style masks, and other cloth face coverings that meet the California Department of Public Health guidelines.
