DAVIS SENIOR HIGH TO TEST GENERATORS

 

Davis Senior High is closed today because our school is experiencing a total power failure due to an outage in our power infrastructure. Classes and on-campus events are canceled. However, any athletic games and practices that were scheduled at off site locations will continue as planned.

 

DJUSD has been working with PG&E since late Sunday evening to find a resolution to this power outage. As the regular power infrastructure cannot be repaired today, the school has brought in generators to power lighting, phones, fire alarms, safety systems and other necessary systems to enable us to open campus. Testing of this auxiliary power shall occur later this evening.

 

Look for further updates from me before 8:00 p.m. with more information. Updates are available on the Davis Senior High website, the DJUSD website, District’s Facebook and other social media.

DJUSD Schools Open as Regularly Scheduled- Police Have Lifted Shelter In Place Order Friday, January 11

 

In the early hours of this morning, Davis Police located the suspected gunman deceased with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound in the Downtown Davis area. Police have lifted the shelter in place order and given the all clear for schools to open as regular scheduled.

 

Schools that were closed temporarily last night for security are open today and all classes and activities are taking place as scheduled.  As a school community we are deeply saddened by the report that Davis Police Department Officer Natalie Corona died last night after sustaining fatal gunshot wounds. We send our heartfelt condolences to her family and to fellow police officers.  We also extend our sincere gratitude to all public safety personnel for their bravery and commitment to keeping our children, our schools and our community safe each day.

Due to to worsening air quality, and out of an abundance of caution, Davis Joint Unified School District, along with all other school districts in Yolo County, is closing all schools and offices on Friday, November 16. 

Over the last few days, DJUSD has been regularly monitoring worsening the air quality and conferring with the Yolo County Office of Education, Yolo County Health Department and the Yolo/Solano Air Quality Management District. The decision to close schools due to air quality is not taken lightly and is unprecedented. Our top priority is the health and safety of our students and staff. 

We anticipate the conditions to improve significantly over the next week and look forward to a return to normal school routines, outdoor activities and athletics after Thanksgiving Break. Any updates over Thanksgiving Break will be shared as quickly as possible with our school community by email and available here on the DJUSD website as well as on DJUSD Facebook and Twitter.

Thank you for your partnership and understanding.

Air Quality Update: Schools Remain Open Thursday, November 15


The air quality forecast in our region continues to predict poor air quality levels for the remainder of the week. 

Davis schools will remain open and the restrictions on all outdoor activities will remain throughout the week so as to limit exposure to poor air quality. 
 

  • Restrictions on outside activities continue:
    All students shall remain indoors - this includes recess, lunch period and physical education class.
  • Doors to classrooms will be kept closed to limit exposure to poor air quality.
  • Outside activities, field trips and sports are suspended until further notice.
  • All athletic programs through Davis Senior High School have been postponed or moved indoors. Keep updated on athletics at Davis Senior High Athletics. 

Parents are advised to contact their school office directly for the latest information regarding school-specific plans about physical education classes, lunch schedules, or other questions and concerns. 

DJUSD continues to monitor the Air Quality Index (AQI) and will keep our school community updated with any changes. We recognize that individuals may have questions about their individual student or personal needs and these can be directed to school offices or the Public Information Office at communications@djusd.net.
 

Frequently Asked Questions:



How are decisions made to cancel school?
DJUSD is carefully monitoring the air quality reports and forecasts. Staff continues to consult and confer with Yolo County Office of Education, Yolo County Health Department and the Yolo/Solano Air Quality Management District (Y/S AQMD) to help inform decisions about whether schools will remain open. 

DJUSD is using the guidance from EPA Air Quality Guide for Particulate Pollution (image below) and Yolo/ Solano Air Quality Management District to determine what activities are safe for students and staff to do during the course of the day. We have imposed restrictions and are limiting activities based on the guidelines.

It is important to note that DJUSD has taken an even more precautionary approach by restricting all outdoor activities, even further than the EPA guidance provides given air quality levels this week, so as to limit outdoor exposure during the school day as much as possible. 



If my child stays home because of air quality, is this an excused absence?
Yes. If you report an absence because of health concerns related to air quality, it will be counted as an excused absence.

Do classrooms and school buildings have filters in air systems to block smoke? 
We have filtrations systems on all HVAC systems throughout the District that filter particulates down to three microns in size. 

What if my child has asthma or doesn’t feel well?
Students and staff who have asthma or other health concerns should consult with their health care provider. If students become ill at school they should report to the school nurse or office and a parent will be contacted.

Are there plans to cancel school later this week, since the air quality forecast does not suggest improvements in the next couple of days?
DJUSD is carefully monitoring the air quality reports and forecasts. Staff continues to consult and confer with Yolo County Office of Education, Yolo County Health Department and the Yolo/Solano Air Quality Management District to help inform decisions about whether schools will remain open. We will let our school community know of any updates or changes.

Dear DJUSD Parents and Guardians,

 

We continue to experience smoky conditions in Davis from the ash blown from the Camp Fire in Butte County.  Throughout this weekend and all through today we have been monitoring the Air Quality Index (AQI) as it has changed.  Today all DJUSD students remained indoors for lunch and physical education class, and doors to classrooms were kept closed to limit exposure to poor air quality.  Forecasts suggest that while winds may cause fluctuations in particulate matter, the air quality will likely remain unhealthy for several days.

 

All schools in DJUSD will remain open tomorrow; we will continue to monitor the air quality index to ensure safety of students and staff throughout the week.

 

DJUSD, in consultation with the Yolo County of Education and Yolo Health Department, recognizes the  EPA and Yolo Solano Air Quality Management District (YSAQMD) guidelines available at EPA Air Quality Guide for Particulate Pollution. It is important to note that DJUSD has taken an even more precautionary approach by restricting all outdoor activities, even further than the guidance provides, so as to limit outdoor exposure during the school day as much as possible.

 

Please know that DJUSD staff at every school site are working hard to monitor student needs and to put student health and safety first.  Considerations to protect children and sensitive groups from smoke, ash and poor air quality include:

  • Keeping children indoors with the doors and windows closed.

  • Suspending athletics and any outdoor school activities during or after school.

  • Monitoring students with medical conditions. Students with asthma, allergies, or a chronic health condition are at high risk from health effects related to wildfire smoke and ash.  Please consult your physician if you have concerns.

 

If you have concerns for your child’s health or they have medical conditions that may be aggravated by poor air quality, please keep your child home or contact your school office.

 

If you have questions or concerns, please contact your school office.

Dear DJUSD Families,

 

On this Veterans Day as we honor the many men and women who serve our country in the U.S. Military, we also recognize the heroic efforts of countless firefighters as well as the tireless efforts of many dedicated citizens in our community who are working to support the victims of the wildfires raging in our region as well as in the southern part of our state. Many in our school community have friends and loved ones who have been affected by the devastation.  DJUSD is partnering with the Davis Police Department to support relief efforts; the DJUSD District Office at 526 B Street will be a drop off point for supplies and donations for fire victims this week.

 

Air Quality in Davis

The fires also sending smoke and ash causing very poor air quality in and around our community.  While school will continue as scheduled, school administrators and staff will be monitoring the local Air Quality Index (AQI) regularly to determine safe levels of student activity each day.  In general, the next two days are predicted to be unhealthy for all groups, and so we anticipate the following protocols for schools:

  • All outside activity will be cancelled or moved indoors until air quality improves

  • After school athletic practices and games at our junior high schools and Davis Senior High will be rescheduled or moved inside

  • During the school day, classroom doors will remain closed to ensure safe air quality

 

Reminders for Parents

Thank you for your patience as we navigate the air quality and make decisions to keep student health our priority.  We also recognize that many students may choose not to commute to school by bike or on foot, so there may be more vehicle traffic at drop off or pick up.  Please plan your schedule accordingly.

 

Finally, if your student has allergies, asthma, or other medical conditions that are aggravated by the poor air quality, please be sure to contact your school office so our staff can help to monitor student health and well-being.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your school office.

It is almost time to celebrate the end of another great school year with Day on the Green.  Please remember:

Holmes dress code will be enforced.  Please wear clothing that is appropriate for playing in the water, climbing and running around.  Girls may wear a bathing suit under a school appropriate shirt.  Shirts should not be see-through when wet.   Skirts or dresses are a bad idea; you will not be able to participate in all of the activities.  Boys must wear a shirt.  You must keep your shoes on at all times. 

No food delivery allowed! Students are never permitted to have food delivered to school from a restaurant. 

Cell phones and cameras are not permitted at Day on the Green.

Students are not allowed to leave campus before 3:25.  All students will report to their 7th period class at 3:15 for attendance.  Students who do not report to 7th period will be marked truant. 

No non-Holmes students are allowed on campus. 

Be safe! If you are rough housing, pushing or behaving in a way that could injure yourself or others you will spend the rest of DOTG in the office. 

Protect your valuables.  Do not leave backpacks with valuables lying around campus unsupervised.  Store you backpacks in your lockers or a locked classroom and leave your valuables (excess money, electronic devices, etc.) at home. 

Let’s keep this day fun and safe.  Don’t forget to thank leadership for all of their hard work.

Yesterday evening, Da Vinci High students and parents reported a concerning message posted to social media threatening a school shooting today. The Da Vinci administration received copies of this post and worked through the night with DJUSD Administration and the Davis Police Department to address the matter. While this investigation is ongoing we can confirm that the student that posted the message has been identified and will not be present on campus today. All schools in the Davis Joint Unified School District, including Da Vinci High School and the Valley Oak Preschool Programs are open today.

 

DJUSD Administrative personnel and Davis Police Department will be present on the Da Vinci High campus today to ensure student and staff well-being safety and address any questions they have. If you have information that might be helpful to the investigation, please contact Davis Police directly at 530-747-5400 and press "0" to reach Dispatch.

 

We understand that there are many students and families across our district that may share concerns about this matter. If you feel that your child needs support, please contact your school principal.

 

Student safety and the security of our schools is our top priority. We thank you for your support of students, staff and schools.

During the month of May we encourage students and staff to ride their bikes to school. Bicycling is good exercise, reduces car traffic and is good for the environment.

 

On Wednesdays all month, some students who ride their bikes will be randomly chosen to receive a prize, such as t-shirt, keychain or gift card. Watch for the green prize coupons. Redeem your prize in room E-34 at lunch.
