First Day of School UPDATE 9/1/21

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.
