Beginning Monday, March 30th, we will change our schedule for picking up meals at school sites, as well as the routes and times when we will be delivering meals via buses.

A Virtual Perspective on Learning – and a “Thank You” to Teachers
03/23/2020
As we start our day today, we are all in the same unexpected place: a place of realization that life has changed. Our new “normal,” for now at least, is very different from what it was early last week. While some adults can continue working, others cannot, and many are working from home and trying to shuffle the reality of a workday along with children who have had their routines turned upside down. This is the same reality faced by teachers within Humboldt County, as they work diligently to provide distance learning to students, despite the challenges. Eureka City Schools is home to a preschool, four elementary sites, two middle schools, two high schools, and an online virtual school. In total, teachers are committed to educating over 3,600 students within our community. Over the past couple of days, all Eureka City Schools’ staff worked together to prepare packets, and virtual classrooms, for what could be an extended distance-learning environment. Preparation has consisted of contacting parents and guardians, prepping packets/virtual classrooms for continued learning, and establishing a stable routine for students and families.

I want to start by recognizing how amazing our staff here at Eureka City Schools are! They have been working countless hours to prepare the extended learning for our students. As they make personal phone calls to you over this period of schools being closed, I encourage you to thank them for their monumental efforts. Please note, in the coming weeks, teachers will be personally contacting you and/or your students via telephone. Many of these calls will have a caller ID of unknown. Today, we served over 2,000 meals to the children in our community. We also disseminated thousands of learning packets. If you have been unable to get your packets, school busses will be delivering packets, breakfast, and lunch, at the normal times and bus stops for morning school pick-up.
