Students expected to return to full-time in-person learning in fall


DEL NORTE, Calif. (KIEM)- Del Norte County students can expect to return to full-time in person school in the fall, according to the Del Norte Unified School District.

The superintendent’s weekly message addressed Governor Gavin Newsom’s plan to phase out, on June 15th, the tiered system that identifies Covid-19 cases.

Superintendent Jeff Harris says the district will continue to monitor guidance from both the Department of Public Health and Governor’s Office.

State guidance surrounding middle and high school graduation is not clear, those final graduation plans will be announced by the principles of each school.

Harris also touched on high school athletics.

“I have been asked what it would mean for our schools if our county returned to the purple tier,” said Harris, “Because we are already back in person and our athletics are moving forward, there would be no changes to our current schedules or activities.

 “If you [community members] haven’t been able to attend a home football game, you can tune in to our live stream or watch previous games whenever you want.”
