Yet, the truth is that the responsibilities of school nurses are critical to monitoring and maintaining healthy and thriving schools.

Meet the Foreign Exchange Students in PUSD Schools

Every year, Plumas Unified Schools welcome foreign exchange students from all over the world. Historically, Rotary is the host organization that facilitates these exchanges. Rotary both organizes the international students exchange and host families here in Plumas County, as well as offers students opportunities for summer and yearlong exchanges abroad. This year we have two foreign exchange students hosted by the Rotary Club, one at Chester Jr./Sr. High School and one at Portola Jr./Sr. High, as well as one student at Quincy Jr./Sr. High School hosted by a private company.
