12:00 pm 1/1/6/19: CCDC at Carmelo has no power at this time because of tree damage to a power line. Be assured the children are all safe. However, because of the lack of heat, we are asking parents to pick up their children by 1:00 this afternoon.
If you are not able to pick up your child by 1:00, please call the school site to make special arrangements. Also, if you are a Carmel Unified staff member who does not have a person to pick up your child, special arrangements will be made to care for your child until you are released from work.
Be aware the regular phone number is not working because of the power outage, so please use the emergency number, which is 625-1351.
Again, all students are safe and well cared for at this time.
10:45 am 1/16/19: This is a message from the Carmel Unified School District about after-school activities and transportation on Wednesday January 16.
In anticipation of high winds and rain, the district is cancelling all after-school programs, which include all indoor and outdoor athletics and enrichment activities at Carmel High, Carmel Middle, River, and Tularcitos School. After-school buses will run as normal with two exceptions: there will be no late bus in the evening and no buses south of Palo Colorado Canyon.
River Rec and Tular Rex parents, please plan on picking up your child no later than 5:00 pm.
The only official school-related event that is still planned for this evening is the school board meeting at Carmel Middle School.
6:00 pm 1/15/19: This is a message from the Carmel Unified School District about transportation and school schedules.
With the exception of Big Sur, Carmel Unified schools will be open tomorrow (Wednesday, January 16) with normal bus runs and school schedules.
There will be no school at Captain Cooper or Apple Pie School and no bus runs south of Palo Colorado on Wednesday because of power outages, as well as anticipated high winds and possible flash flooding. Big Sur students of Carmel High and Carmel Middle School are not expected to attend school Wednesday.
Other school sites are experiencing intermittent power outages at the time of this message. We will be monitoring the conditions, and if we need to close other school sites or have an early dismissal, we will notify you by text, phone, and email messages.
As always, our children’s safety is our top priority.

Dear Parents and CUSD employees: A Chicago colleague asked recently, “What is the name of your new school district?” “Carmel Unified,” I responded. “Unified? ” she inquired as though she had misheard. I quickly responded, “Yes, in Chicago we would call it a Unit District. It serves students in grades K-12. Actually we also have a preschool program here, so it’s actually pre-K to grade 12, but it’s about the same thing as a unit district.”
