Online Learning Resources: #Ownyourlearning

Change and opportunity go hand in hand. During this time when learning is less structured, students have the opportunity to learn about things that interest them and produce writing, podcasts, and other work that makes them feel proud about what they are doing. Own your learning, Cougars! Do great things!!!

Teachers are providing lessons. It is important for students to engage in the work provided in addition to attending the Zoom meetings in order to learn the material. Mastery is built by doing, not just watching a master!

To extend your learning and pursue your interests, click the link below to see the QES webpage for student resources.

Check out these cool resources on the QES website

It's important for learning that YOU do the work.

Not just watch your teacher do it.

If I watched Steph Curry dribble a basketball in a video, would that be enough for me to know how to dribble like he does?

Greetings Students and Families

School Site Closures:

Plumas Unified School sites will remain closed with access to the public by appointment only. Strict adherence to physical/social distancing, hand washing, covering coughs and sneeze protocols as set forth by our local and national leaders are in place. Thank you for helping to keep our community healthy.

Reaching out to families:

Our teachers have been reaching out to their students and families to check in many different ways. They are excited and eager to roll-out some distance learning and provide supplemental enrichment packages for those who request. Below you will find some information happening tomorrow on Monday and Tuesday including Meal distribution, Chromebook distribution and supplemental/enrichment learning packages to name a few.


Let's all remember that everyone in our community is doing the best we can during this global pandemic we are in. On behalf of the staff, we thank all of you for this. Let’s also remember that everything will not be the same as we knew it; we need to be okay with this as hard as it is to wrap our heads around. Everything will not happen the way we think it should, or instantly, or as quickly as many of us would like. Thoughtful consideration of processes, communication, logistics, and priority of operations all must be considered while navigating this process; this takes time.

During this time of change we can look for opportunities to be grateful. There are a variety of ways to shift our perspectives on what is happening - Stress over having to learn a new way of living could be seen as an opportunity to learn and grow and gain confidence in our abilities to adapt. Time that we once spent running from place to place can now be spent having meaningful conversations with the ones we love.

All of us using our Toolbox tools of taking deep breaths, and even using that garbage can tool will help demonstrate to others our patience, kindness, forgiveness, and love in our hearts that we have for one another. This is how we will help each other and our community to get through this. Stay healthy and safe everyone.
