As we work through the many challenges related to the Dixie Fire, we are excited to get school started, but need to do so in a safe manner. Any decision to change to the school calendar, especially a further delayed start, is not made without considerable deliberation with multiple stakeholders. As a result of these deliberations, we must write today to inform you of some recent changes:
- Chester: Due to the thorough cleaning of the schools that is taking place, school start will be pushed back to Thursday, September 9th
- Quincy: At this time, Quincy schools will start as planned on Tuesday, September 7th. If further evacuation warnings or orders are in place, the start date may be delayed.
- Portola: A decision will be made by Thursday night at 5:00pm as to the school start date
- Greenville Elementary at Taylorsville: A start date will be determined pending the lifting of evacuation warnings/orders
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
