Hello Dunham Families,
We continue to prepare for our April 12 hybrid return. We have finalized our cohort schedules and will be sharing them out later next week. If you choose to remain in 100% distance learning though June 2021, the end of the school year, it is important to understand that the classes have been built based on available space (desks six feet apart).
Furniture has been moved, rearranged and purchased based on the information gathered from families with regards to their return preferences. The schedules were meticulously made based on how many we have in a classroom each day. If you choose to remain in 100% distance learning though June 2021 (end of the school year) your child will not be able to join the hybrid schedule for the remainder of the school year. If you have questions about this please call the office immediately.
Please see the below information about report cards, the See’s Candy fundraiser, (for 5th & 6th outdoor ed), and picture make ups.
Last week’s Friday folder had very important information so I have included it again this week.
Take care and see you soon,
Superintendent / Principal

3/5/21 Friday Folder Information
Last year the state required us to add “emergency days” into our 2020-21 school calendar. Following our feeder district’s calendar we added five days on the backside of spring break. Though we did have some Sonoma County emergencies, none of them required us to shut down and so no emergency days were used. This means spring break is two weeks long this school year. Spring break will run from March 29th – April 9th.
Please keep in mind the recommended guidelines for quarantining if you are thinking about traveling during spring break. Whether traveling during spring break or during hybrid learning, the CA Department of Public Health is recommending that anyone who travels out of state quarantine for ten days upon return. This could be a recipe for disappointment; to finally open and then potentially have to close within just a few days if new COVID-19 cases develop. Please plan accordingly and notify the school if you are needing to quarantine instead of returning with the anticipated hybrid opening.
If you have not already read our COVID-19 Safety Plan, it can be found on our website at http://dunhamsd.org/. I would highly encourage anyone coming back into the hybrid to be familiar with the safety protocols put into place to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
