Principal's Message

Orleans Elementary is a K-8 school located on Highway 96 along the Klamath River.  We currently have four full-time teachers and class sizes of approximately 15-20 students.  Our campus has four classrooms, a library, office, cafeteria, and gym.  Our students are actively involved in sports such as volleyball, basketball, wrestling, and track n' field.  We collaborate with the local Karuk and Yurok tribes to provide educational opportunities outside of the classrooms as well as cultural lessons at school.
Our community comes together to celebrate and support our youth.  We invite your input and participation to make our school a place where students thrive. 
I feel blessed to be living along the river where I grew up and to be working with a caring and capable staff to serve our students.
