Dear Parents: 
This letter is to inform you of the possibility of school closure during the next few months due to heavy snowfall.
In the event this happens, there are several school closing situations that might occur, depending on what time
the snow falls:
(1) Snowfall occurs at night or early morning, the school(s) could be closed before the buses
leave on their routes.
(2) School(s) must close earlier than the normal release time.
In any of the school closing situations just described, all Paradise Unified School District households will be
notified by telephone and/or email through our School Messenger system. It is very important that each school
has up-to-date contact information on each student. The District will also continue to notify local radio and TV
stations immediately, including the Town of Paradise emergency broadcast station at 1500 AM and the Upper
Ridge emergency broadcast station at 1460 AM. (Refer to the list shown below.) You may also obtain information
by logging on to the District web page or by calling the Transportation Office at 872-6484. Please realize phone
lines may be busy.
If you have any questions, please give me a call at (530) 872-6400.

Dear Parents, Students, and Families:

My name is Debbi Davis and I am extremely honored and excited to join the staff of Paradise Elementary School (P.E.S.) as the new Principal. Over the past two weeks I have had many interactions and conversations with parents, teachers, and students. It is clear that there is collaboration between all the stakeholders and there are many rich traditions that have fostered successful students. 

I am very passionate about education and I look forward to partnering with you to provide our students at P.E.S. with a rigorous, engaging, and high-quality elementary school experience. As a parent I recognize the importance of a strong home-school-home connection. Parents are every child’s first teacher and I believe that by working together, we can make sure your child’s social, emotional, and academic needs are met.

Before joining P.E.S., I served over the past 25 years, in a variety of teaching and educational leadership roles, in the state of Washington and Idaho. I attended California State University at Chico for my Bachelor of Science degree in Health Science and Biology and received my secondary teaching credentials along with my K-8 Multiple Subjects credential there as well.  I also have a Master Degree in Education with an emphasis in Technology and a certificate in Educational Leadership and Administration.  

I believe that great schools are the results of a great staff. The staff at P.E.S. is dedicated to preparing our students for the 21st Century with a high-quality education, which is intellectually challenging and relevant. In addition to the academic success, the staff at P.E.S. has a passion for teaching, a strong work ethic, are reflective of their practice, and most of all love our students.

If you have not signed up to be part of our wonderful Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) please do, so we can continue to foster the home-school-home relationships. My door is always open; please feel free to stop in, call or email me to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make this the best year yet! 

Thank you for the opportunity to be the instructional leader of such an awesome school community!

Debbi Davis, P.E.S. Principal
