Our Mountain Kids have had a great week. With the wonderful Fall weather, teachers are getting their students outside in the garden, hiking, leaf-peeping, and bird observing.

Among these wonderful Fall days, it brings cold mornings and warm afternoons. Students have left numerous jackets and sweatshirts at school. Please stop by to check our lost and found.

Spirit week starts October 28th. Check out the flyer below for dress-up days!

Plumas County Public Health will be proving the Flu Mist Vaccination to all students with a signed permission slip on October 29th. Permission slips will be in this week's Thursday Folder!

Parent Portal:


Each year, families are required to log in to their Aeries portal to review and confirm data and authorization forms. Please complete this process at your earliest convenience. You can access this confirmation process through our returning students portal or from our Plumas website (www.pcoe.k12.ca.us). Click on “enrollment” on the right side of the main screen, then follow the instructions for returning students.

Fall Fest October 26, 2019 and Red Ribbon Week October 28--31, 2019

Our Annual Fall Fest will take place on October 26, 2019, at our QES Alder Street Campus from 1:00-- 4:00 pm. Sign up to donate a baked good for the Cake Walk at the Fall Fest! Families bring your students and join in the fun! Red Ribbon Week is also quickly approaching; October 28--31, 2019. The following are planned events for our students.

Free Flu Vaccination - October 29th, 2019

Parents are asked to complete the Free Flu Vaccination Form which will be sent home in our Thursday Folders. Please send the completed forms back to school prior to the Free Flu Vaccination Clinic on October 29th. No student will receive the vaccination or mist without a signed parent permission slip.

This year Plumas County Public Health has received a limited amount of flu mist vaccine, which is administered through the nose.

If any one or more of the criteria below applies to your child, your child will need to receive the vaccination in the shot formulation.

  • If your child has asthma.
  • If your child has a poor (weakened) immune system.
  • If your child lives with someone who has a poor (weakened) immune system.
  • If your child lives with a pregnant woman.
  • If your child lives with an infant less than six months old.

Only children ages 2 through grade 6 are eligible for flu mist due to the limited amount of flu mist vaccine. Per Nurse Emilee--"We are encouraging our preschools (District or otherwise) on-site to participate as well. We also encourage family members to attend with their kindergarten and preschool students, which gives them the opportunity to receive their vaccine as well."

Keeping our Students Safe...

Enter and Exiting Campuses:

Keeping our students safe is a top priority for us. We ask that parents and visitors, on both campuses, enter and exit through the front entrances of the schools and please check-in and out in the front offices. Thank you

Morning Drop-off Time for students:

Supervision for students is not available before 7:40 am. Thank you for helping us keep our students safe.

Walking your student into/out of the schools from/to a parked vehicle:

Safety is a priority at both sites. Parents and guardians, we ask that utmost care be taken when walking into/out of our schools from your parked vehicle. Please do not walk through parent pickup lanes between cars; we ask that crosswalks be used. Close supervision of your child and careful navigation when going to your vehicle in our parking lots is also important. Thank you and we appreciate your assistance to ensure everyone in our QES school family is staying safe.

Using the Parent Drop Off/ Pickup Lane at QES Pioneer Campus

Last year we had a community meeting regarding the parent drop-off and pick up lane at our QES Pioneer Campus. The following information was provided to us as the appropriate and safest procedure to follow.

1) Please pull all the way forward before unloading or loading children in the parent pick up/drop off car lane.

2)Thank you for not parking in the parent car lane.

3) When waiting to pick up your child, please wait on Lee Road when the line of cars extends out beyond the car lane. The appropriate and legal way to wait for the car lane to clear is to wait on Lee Road with your blinker on. Please, no waiting/parking on the dirt shoulder along the fence on Lee Road.

5) Please do not block the crosswalk that crosses Mill Creek Road.

6)If you are among one the first cars to extend beyond the car lane, please avoid blocking the bus driveway.

7)When exiting the parent pick up/drop off car lane, please make a right turn only. We ask that U-turns be avoided.

Thank you for helping us keep all our students, families, and staff safe.
