Fire Delays Start of School Year

Board of Education
August 5, 2015
Our hearts go out to the students, staff, families, and community affected by the Rocky
Fire. The District has been in close communication with the Office of Emergency
Services (OES) since Friday, July 31, offering support and resources and continuing to
be on standby. Safety for our community remains a top priority.
Since the fire started on July 29, 2015, the community has been on high alert. Many of
our students, staff, and Konocti families have been under voluntary or mandatory
evacuation and some will not have a home to return to. We are hoping that many of the
evacuation orders will be lifted sometime next week.
In order to provide some transition time and minimize disruption to the school
schedules, the first day of school will be Monday, August 17, 2015.
Next week we will begin working with the evacuation shelters to assure transition and
support for those students who continue to be displaced at the start of school.
Transportation decisions will be made based on where students are located and school
attendance routes should be finalized by Friday, August 14th.
We appreciate everyone’s understanding during this time as we work to accommodate
the needs of our students, staff, and families.
