This November 8th, please allow us at Durham Unified to offer our sincerest thanks and express our deepest respect to our wonderful school community members, from within our district and around the greater Durham community, who positively support the kids and our schools every single day.  Community members who, in a time of a severe and unprecedented crisis, demonstrated selfless support for others in need.  ______________________________________________________________________________

Special Notice

PG&E has notified our county to be prepared for a possible Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) event that could begin as fire hazard conditions become critical. At this time,  Durham Unified Schools have not been located in the zones expected to lose power. We understand this information may be fluid as weather conditions change. We encourage parents to monitor the DUSD website (www.dusd.org) for updates and information.

All Durham Unified Schools will be open in the event of a power outage.

We have confirmed with the Durham Irrigation District, that they have two levels of backup power and will be able to continue water service for the duration of any power outage, should one occur.

As they have done in the past, our nutrition services dept also have the capability to serve the students in the event of a power outage.

Please check back for updates, as we will push new information out as it becomes available.
