Did you know that by enrolling your kids today you can save teaching jobs now? Our schools need help in enrolling your children in school. Contact your local school next week, or our district office at 283-6500. Schedule a time to stop by and enroll your child as soon as possible. This will provide our schools with a more accurate number of students attending in August. Just one or two students enrolling in June can make the difference in us hiring a teacher in advance to teach your children. Waiting leads to changes in classes for students and changes in teaching assignments for teachers. I ask that you help our schools and families by enrolling your children today in the many wonderful public schools we have throughout Plumas County. Sincerely, Glenn R.
