Dear Parent/Guardian:

Today, October 11, experts have determined the air quality in Davis is unhealthy for all groups. The smoke from wildfires in our region continues to impact our city and county.

School remains in session but we continue to monitor the situation and the communications from the Yolo Solano Air Quality Management District and the County of Yolo.  Safety remains a top priority for our school community.  Individuals are encouraged to stay indoors with windows closed.   Students arriving at school this morning will be directed inside to multipurpose rooms or classrooms.  Students will remain indoors during recess, lunch and PE.  Athletic activities are being reviewed and updates will be available on the District and Davis website and Facebook throughout the day.  

If you have a student with health concerns, please contact your school office.

Further questions about smoke conditions can be sent to Maria Clayton,  DJUSD Public Information Officer at mclayton@djusd.net.

DJUSD is sharing the following information with our school community. We ask that anyone with information contact the Davis Police Department.  Please also take time to talk to your children about their commute to and from school and what they can do to practice staying alert and safe.


On September 20, 2017, Davis PD was notified of an Indecent Exposure incident which occurred in the area of Portage Bay West and Lake Boulevard around 3:30 pmthat afternoon.  A 13 year-old girl, while riding her bike, observed a white newer model GMC truck with its hazard lights on along the side of the road.  Upon crossing the roadway, the girl saw a white male adult exit the truck and pull down his pants to expose his genitals.  As the girl tried to call the police, the subject drove away in his vehicle.  

The subject was described as a 35-40 year old white male, approximately 6’0”-6’2” tall, orange/red colored hair parted on the side, wearing an orange shirt, grey sweat pants, white shoes, and wearing aviator styled sunglasses. Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to contact the Davis Police Department at 530-747-5400

Please take note about the important change happening at Davis Senior High School this year that will affect morning drop-off at North Davis Elementary and some other school commuters.

 

This school year, Davis Senior High School and Da Vinci High will join our junior high schools in implementing “Later Start.”  This year, senior high schools will be moving their start time from 7:45 am to 8:15 am.  

 

The school district anticipates that the overlap in school arrival times with North Davis Elementary will impact traffic patterns, especially on 14th street in the morning.  Starting on the first day of school, school district staff will be on14th Street to ensure safety and to observe the impact of additional drivers and bikes on the road during the busy mornings.  We highly encourage your family to plan your commute and factor in extra time, at least for the first few days.

 

 DJUSD staff has created a website to explain the Later start  initiative and to help educate staff, students, parents and community members about the importance of adequate sleep and school start times. Visit  http://www.djusd.net/laterstart

 Davis Joint Unified School District, in partnership with the Yolo County Health and Human Services Agency, announces that the Valley Oak Preschools (including Headstart), and the Adult Living Skills Program will be closed for one day on Friday, May 26, 2017, due to the outbreak of Norovirus.

 

Norovirus can cause stomach pain, fever, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, and more than 3,000 students have been ill for the last three weeks in Yolo County. Our school has worked hard to prevent Norovirus from spreading; however, our school continues to see an increase in sick students at a higher percentage than most schools in the county.  The decision to close our specific school site for this one date was made because of the percentage of students and staff in our programs that have reported symptoms over the last three weeks.

 

To prevent spread of the virus and to perform further deep cleaning/disinfection of our site, the school will be closed on Friday, May 26, 2017 and will reopen on Tuesday, May 30.  We apologize for the short notice and understand how this can affect families, but we need to take a more aggressive approach to end the outbreak.

The following update is for all DJUSD employees and DJUSD parents/guardians.

 

                                                NOROVIRUS UPDATE

May 19, 2017  

 

 

The following is updated information about the recent outbreak of the Norovirus in our region and school district.

 

What is the Norovirus?

According to County Health officials, Norovirus is a highly contagious gastrointestinal virus. Symptoms may include stomach cramps, fever, nauseau, vomiting and diarrhea. The virus is passed through touching surfaces contaminated with the virus, close contact with an infected person or eating contaminated food or drink.  County Health experts report that the spread of virus is continuing and encourage the public to take extra precautions to curb the spread. Visit Yolo County Norovirus website and Press Releases.

 

What should I do to protect myself and others from the virus?

There are three key actions you can take to help prevent the spread of Norovirus:

  1. Report absences related to stomach illness symptoms to your school office.
  2. Encourage the practice of regular hand washing, especially before meals.
  3. Stay home an additional 48 hours after symptoms resolve. (Health experts warn that individuals are still highly contagious in this timeframe.)

Has the Norovirus affected Davis schools?

Norovirus cases have been confirmed in our schools. Over the last two weeks, the numbers of new cases do not appear to be growing rapidly.  We continue to see reported absences across the district, but the attendance rates are generally remaining steady.  That said, because this virus outbreak is highly contagious and the County Health experts have told us the spread has not peaked, we anticipate we will continue to see Norovirus absences throughout the end of the school year.  Certain school campuses have reported more staff or student cases than others, but, at this time, the virus is not disrupting normal school operations at any campus.

 

What is DJUSD doing to protect schools and students?

DJUSD is taking a three-pronged approach to addressing the current health situation:

  1. Daily Monitoring of Possible Cases and Regional Coordination

Over the last two weeks, our schools have have been tracking absences of students and employees with symptoms that may be caused by the Norovirus. Lead district adminstrators have been monitoring the numbers and trends as well as particpating in regular teleconferences led by Yolo County officials to talk about regional trends, cleaning recommendations, health updates and recommendations.

  1. Disinfecting and Deep Cleaning Efforts across Campuses and in Targeted Areas

Ensuring that we keep students and school learning environments safe and clean is a top priority.  DJUSD is diligently deploying extra resources to combat the spread of the Norovirus in our schools with the use of proper disinfecting agents. By tracking new cases on a daily basis and coordinating with county and federal entities about proper chemical use, we are able to target additional resources appropriately and effectively.  Custodians are working throughout the day to respond to calls as well as to cleanse and disinfect high contact point surfaces (doorknobs, restrooms, water fountains, keypads, etc.)  Additionally, our maintenance team is deploying crews to schools for evening and weekend deep cleaning.

  1. Education and Communication to Employees and the School Community

Keeping the community up to date on the current situation is a priority. DJUSD has issued a series of updates for employees and school site leaders. In addition to this communication, an update went out to all DJUSD parents/guardians early last week.   Updates, press releases and information from County Health continue to be shared on the DJUSD website, School Loop News and on the Davis Joint Unified School District Facebook Page. The school district continues to respond to inquiries from local news media almost daily.  If you have specific questions about the  Norovirus and what is happening in our school district, please contact your school principal or our Public Information Officer, Maria Clayton at mclayton@djusd.net.

The following Student Health and Safety information about the spread of Norovirus  is provided to Parents and Guardians from the Davis Joint Unified School District:

Yolo County Gastrointestinal (GI) Outbreak 
According to the Yolo County Health Department hundreds of students, teachers, and school staff are sick with stomach cramps, vomiting, and/or diarrhea in schools throughout Yolo County and the number is increasing each day. In Davis schools we have limited cases, but are seeing more students and staff having to stay home with symptoms each day.

Facts from County Health experts:

  • The outbreak is most likely caused by the Norovirus which is highly contagious.
  • Norovirus commonly spreads through touching surfaces contaminated with the virus, close contact with someone who is infected, or eating contaminated food or drink.  
  • Symptoms may include fever, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and stomach pain.
  • Symptoms last for 1-3 days.  However, after symptoms go away, people are still highly infectious, especially the first 48 hours.  There is no treatment for Norovirus.    

More information about Norovirus, please visit the CDC website at www.cdc.gov/Norovirus  Information about Norovirus and templates for letters and guidance is also available by clicking on “Communicable Disease Investigation and Control” on the Yolo County website.
 
The Yolo County Public Health Officer states the following actions be taken to prevent further spread of the infection: 

  •  Students, Teachers, and School Staff should stay home if there is any sign of illness such as stomach pain, fever, nausea, vomiting, and/or diarrhea.
  • Stay home for an additional 48 hours after symptoms are gone.  Even though you feel better, you still carry the virus and can infect other people.
  • Wash your hands frequently throughout the day with soap and water.
  • Clean contaminated surfaces regularly with appropriate disinfectant.
  •  Do not prepare food and drink for others if you are sick.
  • Report to school front office if your student has fever, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or stomach pain.
  • Questions related to symptoms and treatment should be directed to your primary care provider or clinic.

Take Notice- Health Update


A new stomach virus has been on the rise in our county and currently affecting UC Davis and Woodland schools as well as schools in Sacramento.   At this time it is not affecting Davis school operations, but cases have been identified across our district.  As the situation changes, DJUSD will keep our community posted. 
-----------
The Yolo County Health & Human Services Agency is investigating a gastrointestinal illness (GI) outbreak throughout the county.

Davis High School Music Department Presents

THE 2017 DHS JAZZ INVITATIONAL

FEATURING TRUMPETER TOM PERON

 

THURSDAY, APRIL 13 AT THE BRUNELLE THEATER, 7:30PM

 

The award-winning DHS Jazz Ensemble, under the direction of Thomas Slabaugh II, will present a concert featuring music by Grammy award winner Maria Schneider, Bill Holman, Benny Carter, Radiohead, and Lester Young.

 

The ensemble will also showcase our award-winning combos in performance on music by jazz icons Thelonious Monk, Antônio Carlos Jobim, Billy Strayhorn, Duke Ellington, Charlie Parker, "Dizzy" Gillespie, Luiz Bonfá, and Clifford Brown.

 

The concert will conclude with guest artist Tom Peron featured on “Bye Bye Blackbird” (in the style made famous by Miles Davis) and “Perdido”, as made famous by Duke Ellington’s band.

 

Teacher and performer Tom Peron has a very successful career, performing with the great pianist Jessica Williams in the 1980’s before forming another successful group with San Francisco drummer Bud Spangler. Since the early 1980’s, Tom Peron and his groups have performed for audiences at the Monterey Jazz Festival, KRML's Jazz Store in Carmel, Yoshi's, Pearl's, Heart & Soul, and the Museum of Modern Art, all in San Francisco. In addition to his busy performance schedule, Tom Peron also teaches at Watermelon Music in Davis and at the University of the Pacific.

 

Phil Elwood, music critic for the San Francisco Examiner, has written, "As for trumpeter/composer Peron, one is encouraged to say, 'just listen,' and move on - astonished at his playing, versatility, imagination and technical facility. Master of his horn, with 'good ears,' as Lester Young would have said, Peron has created his own style, his own sound, out of jazz roots. Very few trumpeters out there are Peron's equal, let alone his better,"

This year is the 50th Anniversary of Davis’ Holmes Junior High School! Holmes was founded in 1966, and has been one of Davis’ Junior High schools, teaching thousands of children and contributing to our community. Its mascot is the Patriot. The namesake of the school is Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr., a well-known American poet and author.

 

To celebrate, Holmes is holding our 50th Anniversary Open House on April 27th, 2017. We are also collecting artifacts to be placed in a time capsule that will be buried in the grounds of Holmes. If you have any items that you feel could be put in it, bring them to the front office of Holmes. We are also creating a Display Case in the library. The theme of this is “50 years of faces”. Feel free to bring anything that you feel will represent this subject, prior to the event. The deadline for these items is April 21st.

 

The Open House Celebration begins at 6:00pm, and ends at 8pm. It will be at Holmes. The address is 1220 Drexel Drive, Davis CA. All families are welcome! We would especially like to invite any Holmes alumni from years past or former Holmes students currently attending district schools. Wear any Holmes memorabilia that you own and come ready to have a good time! There will be food vendors, music performances, and activities around campus, so bring your family and get food and sit in the grass to watch students perform. We hope to see you soon!

Todos pertenecemos: escuelas seguras y acogedoras para todos

Foro comunitario de las escuelas de Davis

Teatro Brunelle, Escuela Preparatoria Davis

Lunes 23 de enero, 6:30-8:00 PM

 

Durante el mes pasado, el Distrito Escolar Unificado Davis comunicó a los padres de familia, personal y comunidad nuestro compromiso de asegurar que la escuela siga siendo un lugar seguro para todos los estudiantes y las familias, sin importar su situación migratoria, raza, color, ascendencia, origen nacional, identificación de grupo étnico, edad, religión, estado civil o parental, discapacidad física o mental, sexo, orientación sexual, género, identidad de género o expresión de género. Para ratificar nuestros valores, el Distrito Escolar Unificado Davis está elaborando una resolución que será adoptada en la junta de la Mesa Directiva, que se llevará a cabo el 2 de febrero. Además de la variedad de formas en las que hemos reunido comentarios (eventos de la comunidad, visitas a las escuelas y lo que hemos aprendido de sus llamadas telefónicas y correos electrónicos como parte de nuestro proceso regular para mantener un clima escolar positivo), queremos invitarlo a asistir a un foro comunitario liderado por el Distrito Escolar Unificado Davis sobre las escuelas seguras, para que comparta sus experiencias y puntos de vista. Para leer las comunicaciones recientes de nuestro superintendente respecto a este tema, visite el sitio web www.djusd.net y haga clic en Comunicación del superintendente.

We All Belong: Safe and Welcoming Schools for All

Davis Schools Community Forum

Brunelle Theatre, Davis Senior High School

Monday, January 23, 6:30-8:00 pm

 

Over the last month, the Davis Joint Unified School District has communicated with parents, staff and the community our commitment to ensuring that school remains a safe place for all students and families, regardless of their immigration status, race, color, ancestry, national origin, ethnic group identification, age, religion, marital or parental status, physical or mental disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity or gender expression.  In order to reaffirm our values, DJUSD is crafting a resolution for adoption at the Board of Education meeting scheduled for February 2.  In addition to the variety of ways we have been gathering input (community events, visiting school sites, and learning from your phone calls and emails as part of our usual process to maintain a positive school climate) we would like to invite you to attend a DJUSD-led community forum about safe schools to share your experience and perspectives.  To read recent communications from our Superintendent on this topic,  visit www.djusd.net and click on Superintendent Communication.

 

Spanish interpretation will be available at the event.

DJUSD is announcing the availability of free and reduced-price meals for enrolled children.  Applications are available at the school office at each campus in the Davis Joint Unified School District.  To apply for free or reduced-price meal benefits, households must complete an application and return it to the school for processing.  Applications may be submitted at any time during the school year.  The information households provide on the application will be used to determine meal eligibility and may be verified at any time during the school year by school or program officials.

 

Requirements for school officials to determine eligibility for free and reduced-price benefits are as follows: For households receiving CalFresh, CalWORKs, Kin-GAP, or FDPIR benefits – applications need only include the enrolled child(ren)'s name, CalFresh, CalWORKs, Kin-GAP, or FDPIR case number, and the signature of an adult household member. All children in households that receive CalFresh, CalWORKS, Kin-GAP, or FDPIR are eligible for free meals, and if any child is not listed on the eligibility notice, that household should contact their school to have benefits extended to that child.  For households who do not list a CalFresh, CalWORKs, Kin-GAP, or FDPIR case number, the application must include the names of all household members, the amount and source of the income received by each household member, and the signature and corresponding last four digits of a Social Security number of an adult household member.  If the household member who signs the application does not have a Social Security number, the household member must indicate on the application that a Social Security number is not available.

 

Under the provisions of the free and reduced-price meal policy, the determining official(s), as designated by the sponsor/agency, shall review applications and determine eligibility.  Parents or guardians dissatisfied with the eligibility ruling may discuss the decision with the determining official on an informal basis.  Parents may also make a formal request for an appeal hearing of the decision and may do so orally or in writing with the sponsor/agency’s hearing official.  Parents or guardians should contact their child(ren)’s school(s) for specific information regarding the name of the determining official and/or hearing official for a specific school, agency, or district.

 

If a household member becomes unemployed or if the household size increases, the household should contact the school.  Such changes may make the children of the household eligible for benefits if the household's income falls at or below the levels shown above.

 

Households that receive CalFresh, CalWORKs, Kin-GAP, or FDPIR benefits may not have to complete an Application for Free or Reduced-Price Meals or Free Milk. School officials will determine eligibility for free meals based on documentation obtained directly from the CalFresh, CalWORKs, Kin-GAP, or FDPIR office that a child is a member of a household currently receiving CalFresh or FDPIR benefits or an assistance unit receiving CalWORKs or Kin-GAP benefits.  School officials will notify households of their eligibility, but those who do not want their child(ren) to receive free meals must contact the school.
