Yesterday and today, evacuation orders were issued for several areas in our County due to anticipated debris flow in the areas impacted by the CZU Lightning Complex Fire and surrounding areas. The impending weather front expected to reach our community later this evening could lead to a debris flow event where loose mud, sand, soil, rock, and water can move down the slopes of the Santa Cruz Mountains endangering the lives of residents. School districts across the county and the County Office of Education are working closely with the Office of Emergency Services to provide communication, evacuation, and sheltering resources for impacted residents.

Please use the 2021-22 School Calendar to plan your vacations during school holidays. Research has clearly shown that students are more likely to succeed when they attend school consistently. Please also note that the calendar assumes that school can resume more or less normally by August. If that is not the case, changes may have to be made.
I think we can all agree, 2021 has most certainly gotten off to an interesting start. While our shared hope of an expansion of in-person learning this month may have been dashed by COVID-19 health conditions and renewed Stay-At-Home orders, there are reasons to be optimistic. I’m pleased to be able to share those with you.
Yesterday, we watched in horror and outrage as a violent mob stormed the U.S. Capitol in a deadly effort to disrupt the certification of the election victory of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. It also left us with questions as educators and parents as to how we would help our youth and children make sense of this assault on our democracy.
The Vision: This winter, the people of Bonny Doon — you and your neighbors — will plant daffodil bulbs in every corner of our mountain community. Come spring, the vibrant golden blooms of hundreds of thousands of daffodils will appear amid the fire-scarred landscape of Bonny Doon. Once established, the flowers will return every spring thereafter in greater profusion, on roadsides and hillsides, in public and private spaces, all over Ben Lomond Mountain. If we plant 100,000+ bulbs they will multiply in place over a few years to become over 1,000,000 blooms for Bonny Doon!
With the surge in COVID-19 cases in the area and new State health guidelines and restrictions, I want to provide an update on what this means for Bonny Doon School. Attached is information on the results of the recent parent survey as well as details of current in-person learning cohorts on the school campus, and how any expansion is being impacted by County health conditions, plus an outline of next steps.
