• We are a small, multi-aged, K-5 school, nestled along the banks of the South Yuba River on Donner Summit. We offer children a unique educational experience in an amazing natural environment and use the environment for students to explore and learn while becoming environmentally aware. Instruction employs a multi-age format that prioritizes differentiation to meet the academic, social, and emotional needs of all students.



    "Delayed Start" Option

    This winter, based on feedback the district has received from parents and staff members, and in the interest of student safety, we will be adding “delayed starts” as an option on days when warranted. A delay of two hours for all school schedules and bus schedules will be implemented when there has been significant snow during the night which ends or is expected to end by 5 a.m. A delayed start will allow more time for our partner agencies and private contractors to address snow removal and to ensure conditions are safe, without missing a full day of school. If we implement a “delayed start” it would be announced using our regular snow day notification process with calls going out to parents at 4:30 a.m. and 6 a.m. For Donner Trail, a delayed start means school will begin at 10:45 a.m. and end at the regular dismissal time. Lunch times remain the same.  This also means that each bus stop time would be delayed two hours from it's regular time in the morning though the afternoon bus stop times remain the same.
