Superintendent's Message to the Community 3-15-2021 

On our webinar last week we were joined by Bob Hadfield and Paige Swan, and we discussed some important sports updates, if you are interested in what was discussed, please visit and scroll down to the section labeled “communication to families”, you can watch the webinar there, or select “podcasts” to also listen to what was discussed.

This past weekend, too, we were notified that a member of the varsity football team tested positive for COVID-19, and the team has been quarantined by Public Health through March 23. We are following health guidance as required by CDPH and local public health. In response to the quarantine, the varsity game scheduled for Friday, March 19, has been postponed to Friday, April 9, and the JV game scheduled for Friday, March 19, has been postponed to Saturday, March 20. There will be no varsity game against Ferndale on April 10.  This will allow our players to play the most games, as long as there is no other quarantine. Our goal is for every athlete, in every grade, to be able to compete this year to the fullest extent possible.  For more information, please visit the Del Norte High website and go to the Athletics tab under Student Activities.

Please remember that next week Monday is a distance learning day for everyone and students who usually attend on Monday will attend in person on Friday.  Parent-Teacher conferences for TK-8 will be March 19, March 22, and April 2.  Teachers have been and will be reaching out to families of students who are struggling the most.  If, though, you have not been contacted to schedule a conference and you have questions or concerns, please reach out to your student’s teacher.  Please see the attached schedule for more information.

Finally, spring break is April 5th-9th, there will be no school that week, and students will be back in class on Monday, April 12th.  Speaking of April 12, if your child is currently in 100% distance learning and you are interested in making the switch back to in-person blended learning as of April 12, please reach out to your child’s school as soon as you’re able to begin the process.

If you have any questions or concerns please email
