“The Science of Rafting” Connecting Learning and Adventure

The Plumas Unified School District 6th-grade theme is the Year of the Watershed. Both literally and figuratively, 6th-grade is a rite of passage year for PUSD students as they earn their stripes as true mountain kids and explore the many tributaries that create the Feather River Watershed. Throughout the year, 6th-graders are immersed in the environments that they are learning about to fully explore the scientific principles they are studying, connect to their home, and foster a deep appreciation for and stewardship of the abundant natural resources surrounding them.

Volunteerism in Plumas County Creates Thriving Communities and Schools

The Kindergarten Roundup is an annual collaborative effort of Plumas Unified School District and many county organizations to help incoming kindergartners and transitional kindergartners register for school, obtain their mandated physical and dental exams and have fun doing it! The roundups are orchestrated by the PUSD school nurses who work with local agencies to make the event a success. Published 4-25-18

An Update on 50 Church Street April 2018

The historic 1905 Quincy Elementary School located at 50 Church Street in Quincy was used to teach students for almost 50 years until the California Earthquake Standards Act came into place, at which point it was adapted into offices for the staff of Plumas County Office of Education (PCOE) and Plumas Unified School District (PUSD). In 2014, the old schoolhouse and district office was vacated due to waste plumbing and flooding issues. The previous administration at the time of the flooding, decided not to go forward with repairs or plans for the building after the initial mitigation was addressed. This left the historic building vacant and deteriorating for three years. Published 4-18-18

School Nurses Help Create Healthy and Thriving Learning Environments for ALL students

There is a common misconception that the role of school nurses only includes the occasional first aid duties and caring for kids with a cold or the flu. Yet, the truth is that the responsibilities of school nurses are critical to monitoring and maintaining healthy and thriving schools. School Nurses are foundational to making public education available to every student, regardless of any and all pre-existing health conditions and circumstances. Published 3-29-18
