Summer 2020, Weekly Communication

As we progress through the planning and implementation of returning to school for the 20-21 school year, you can count on this newsletter coming out every Thursday between June 18- August 13th. We will keep you updated on any information or decisions, as well as inform you of ways to provide input.

20-21 Enrollment Options

Plumas County Office of Education/Plumas Unified School District is committed to reopening school safely. In order to meet social distancing guidelines, all students will be engaged in some level of distance learning. Each family will have the opportunity to make decisions about school that will work best for their home/work/school life, and will also be most supportive of learning for their child or children.

In order to acknowledge the diversity of our families' needs, PCOE/PUSD is able to offer three return to school options for students and families:

1. AM/PM Blended Learning,

2. Plumas Digital Classroom (100% online)

3. Independent Study

The information below describes each option in additional detail.

To assist us in planning for a start date of August 24th, please complete this form and submit your response by July 26th.

Thank you in advance for your participation.
