Carr Fire: Information & How You Can Help
Laura Morlan

From Enterprise Elementary School District:

Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone that has been impacted by the CARR Fire. Please know that Enterprise Elementary School District is here to support you. We want to provide you with some important information to help you plan for the upcoming school year.

Our school offices are open and ready to answer any of your questions. We are here to serve all students.

The first day of school is Wednesday, August 15. Our schools are ready to serve students and we assure families we are here to provide a safe, caring, supportive learning environment.

We will continue to post resources on our EESD webpage to help families during this difficult time. Shasta County Office of Education also has resources posted on their webpage.   Please contact your school if you have specific questions about attendance or enrolling new students.

We have received several questions about how you can help. Shasta County Office of Education has created a Go Fund Me Account set up to support families. You can access the Go Fund Me Account on the EESD Website. Funds will be used for helping with school clothes and school supplies for students from preschool through high school who have lost their homes

Thank you first responders and firefighters. We are #ReddingStrong and we will come together to care for each other during these difficult times. Enterprise Elementary School District is here to serve you.

How you can contribute....

  • Go Fund Me - Students

    • Funds will be used for students from preschool through high school across the county who have lost their homes for helping with school clothes and school supplies.

It is the responsibility of the District to ensure an environment that promotes learning.  Students must be neat, clean, well-groomed, and ready to learn.  Clothing and hairstyles must be appropriate and not interfere with instruction.  In the best interest of children and the school, students must adhere to the following:

  • Clothing shall cover undergarments and torso at all times and may not have holes or rips above the mid-thigh.  
  • Garments may not be too tight or too revealing.
  • Dresses and skirts shall be at least mid-thigh in length (or accompanied by shorts underneath).
  • Shorts must have a minimum 3” inseam.
  • Pajamas are allowed only on designated spirit days or special events planned by school administration.
  • Safe footwear must be worn at all times and allow for participation in PE.  Flip flops, sandals without a back strap, and skate shoes are not permitted.
  • Hats may be worn outdoors for sun protection or warmth.
  • For safety reasons, hanging chains, spiked belts/wristbands, or sharp, heavy jewelry are not permitted.
  • No clothing, jewelry or personal items that bear statements or pictures that are disrespectful, obscene or profane, advocate illegal, sexual, or violent behavior, or refer to death, alcohol, tobacco, or other drugs, violence, racism, gang-related, or make sexual innuendos will be allowed.
  • Face painting, unnatural hair coloring, or body piercing that cause a disruption or safety concern are not allowed.  Hair may not be sprayed with any coloring that would drip when wet.

Administration will determine whether or not any of the above guidelines are being violated and ultimately a distraction or potential distraction to the learning environment at school.

On behalf of the  Mistletoe school community, I want to congratulate you and your children! Our school was recently recognized as a 2017 - 2018 Educational Results Partnership (ERP) Honor Roll School for our high achievement and student success! The Honor Roll program, sponsored by the Campaign for Business and Education Excellence (CBEE), is part of a national effort to identify higher-performing schools and districts that are improving student outcomes.

The 2017 - 2018 ERP Honor Roll utilizes public school student achievement data to identify successful schools and districts. Our school stands above others in the state because of our demonstrated ability to get students to grade level achievement and beyond. Schools that receive the ERP Honor Roll distinction have demonstrated consistently high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement levels over time, and a reduction in achievement gaps among student populations. 

We did not apply for this award. Our results led them to us! Because of our accomplishment, we will be featured on the ERP Honor Roll website and a banner has been designed for us to hang proudly at our school.

We are thankful for the hard work of our students and teachers here at Mistletoe. This recognition is a testament to the sustained focus on academic results and commitment to student success that our school and parent community hasshown over the years.  

Again, congratulations and let’s keep up the great work!
