Welcome to Northern Humboldt Union High School DistrictThe Northern Humboldt Union High School District is comprised of two four-year high schools, Arcata High and McKinleyville High; two small continuation high schools, Pacific Coast High and Tsurai High; one charter school, Six Rivers Charter High; one community day school, NH Community Day School; and one mental health high school program, Riverbend Education Program.
On Tuesday, May 10, our school will take part in the fourth annual Taco Tuesday! The lunchtime event will showcase tacos made with local beef. Clint Victorine and the ranchers that sell through his Pacific Pastures and Eel River Organic Beef labels are once again the primary sponsors. Their beef cattle are completely free of steroids, antibiotics, hormones, and genetically modified foods.
The tacos will be accompanied by Humboldt Creamery sour cream and the salsa that won the People’s Choice award at the 2016 Culinary AllSTARS Salsa Recipe Competition. Called “Humboldt’s Finest,” the recipe was created by a team of after school students from Grant Elementary School while working with Chef Belem Espitia from Pachanga Mexicana.
Del Norte County will be joining Humboldt to take part in the festivities as well. Matt Westbrook, a rancher in Del Norte County, will be providing his Oat Hill Organic Beef to the schools in his neck of the woods.
Thanks so much to our local businesses for sponsoring Taco Tuesday, and to the Humboldt County Office of Education for organizing the event. Be sure to check out local beef and student-created salsa in the cafeteria during Taco Tuesday on May 10!
