In the past day couple days we have seen a positive shift in the Caldor firefight. I am grateful for the men and women who have been battling this fire from both the ground and the air.
With the growth in containment, we are beginning to see evacuation orders shift to warnings. On one hand I am happy to see that families on the North side of Highway 50 are able to return home and on the other hand my heart aches for the many others that remain displaced. It is important that we continue to support one another until all orders and warnings are completely lifted.
In regards to our return to school, please take the time to read the letter below from Superintendent, Pat Atkins. While we all want to be back in the classrooms, we recognize that the health and safety of our school community is paramount. As such, we will need to wait a little bit longer before we are back together. Please continue to regularly check our district webpage as well as the Pollock Pines Elementary School District Facebook page for updates and information.
Our County Office of Education has centralized many links and resources here. You can find fire information links and supports for basic needs.
