News & Announcements

COVID Testing

Working with Nevada County Public Health, districts were given permission to use a negative result by a home test to readmit. Test no longer needs to be observed by a district employee to be verified. The only request is that you log the result in the link below.

You may pick up the home test at your child's school office.

The district is re-instating symptomatic testing starting Tuesday. If your child has symptoms and your are interested in assessing your children for C19, the child could not have come in direct contact with a positive case within the past 14 days. Please call the school's office to set up an appointment. There will be no drop-ins accepted.

Thank you for your continued support and have a great holiday weekend.

21-22 School Year Update

Pleasant Ridge Union School District Families,                                                             
We hope you've had an amazing summer and were able to enjoy time outside as a family! We realize that the start of school is just two weeks away and we wanted to provide a few essential updates since there continue to be state and local guidance and program changes related to COVID-19. Please note, this message is intended to be a quick summer update as we will provide additional detailed updates prior to the start of school.
1.   COVID-19 Health Guidelines - Linked here are the updated California Department of Public Health Guidelines (CDPH) for schools. Please note the Pleasant Ridge Union School District is required to continue to follow these health directives to ensure the safety of our staff, students, families, and community. Based on these guidelines, masks continue to be required on school campuses for everyone when indoors regardless of vaccination status. We will continue to monitor this guidance and will share essential updates as things change.
2.   Our state leaders passed AB 130 in July which requires school districts to offer an Independent Study (IS) option for school-aged students/families who have a health risk that will be impacted by in-person instruction during COVID-19. Due to the late notification from our state leadership, we are still designing our program; however, we do need to know how many families are interested. For that reason, we are asking families to log in to the Parent PowerSchool Portal and indicate whether or not you would like to attend in-person instruction that adheres to the CDPH guidelines listed above or participate in the currently being designed IS program.  Per state guidelines, the independent study model will include some daily live instruction for TK-3 students and daily check-in and monitoring for 4-8th grade students.  We are asking that families indicate their interest in Independent Study by Monday, August 9 at 8:00 AM so we can plan accordingly.
School offices are currently open to support the transition back to full-time in-person instruction.
