Interdistrict Transfers
If your child attends Big Lagoon on an interdistrict transfer agreement, the agreement must be renewed for the 2022 - 2023 school year. You are required to file an Interdistrict Transfer Attendance Request form with your district of residence between December 1, 2021 and February 1, 2022. The district of residence will take action on the request and then forward it to Big Lagoon. The application form was sent home with your child on December 1st.

If you have friends or family who are considering Big Lagoon School as an option for their children for next year, please have them contact the school office at 677-3688 as soon as possible so we can set up a time to let them tour the school.

Our students have been working very hard in preparation for their shadow puppet performance at 3:00 on Friday, December 10th. The performance will be held indoors in Room 1 and will last about 20 minutes. Seating is limited to 30 people and masks are required.

Short term Independent Study 
As the winter holiday travel season approaches, we’d like to remind families about the process for requesting independent study. Independent Study is available for students who will be absent from school for 3 or more school days due to family travel. We ask that you give us at least 3 days’ notice to put together appropriate schoolwork and that the completed work be returned to us upon the student’s return to school. 
 
 
 
As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. I can be reached via email at admin@biglagoon.org or by phone at 677-3688. 
 
The mission of Big Lagoon School is to educate, empower, and prepare students in an environmentally connected and culturally responsive learning community.

About Us

Big Lagoon School is a rural public elementary school serving grades serving students in Transitional Kindergarten to Grade 8, situated on a 10-acre site, 26 miles north of Eureka, California. The school is located just off Highway 101, surrounded by a Sitka Spruce forest.
 
Our students enjoy the benefits of being a five-minute walk from a large freshwater lagoon and miles of sandy beaches and dunes, with a habitat rich in environmental opportunities associated with coastal Pacific lands. The district is surrounded by the Pacific Ocean on the west, Big Lagoon County Park and the Big Lagoon Rancheria to the north, Simpson Lumber Company land to the east, and Patrick's Point State Park to the South.
