Superintendent's Message

Welcome Back Students and Staff!

I am sure, by now you have seen the banners on all of our schools welcoming our students and staff back to our school sites. It goes without saying that we are happy to begin the return to in-person instruction.

While our current school day is not what we are accustomed to, it is a start. The protocols we have to follow in order to ensure the safety of our students and staff restrict the number of people we can accommodate in our classroom spaces at any one time. These protocols change fairly regularly, however, as can be expected with the increase in vaccinated individuals and the decrease in cases. While we are currently only able to offer students a limited amount of time on campus each week, we know the value in providing them with the opportunity to be at school engaging with other students, their teachers, and the school community.

I am looking forward to the beginning of the new school year. It is my intention to bring our students back to campus five days a week for a full instructional day. This will, of course, be contingent on the mandates of the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. If our county and local data continue to improve, I am sure we will be able to fulfill this intention.

I want to thank our staff for their dedicated efforts during this most difficult time. I want to thank our families for your patience, understanding, and commitment to your children and their education. I know none of us ever imagined we would be experiencing school in this manner. We have had to reimagine school, work, social experiences, and so much more. I am confident that we will emerge from this very soon and I can assure you that we will continue to provide our students with the tools and experiences they need to be successful.

Welcome back and, again, thank you for your support!
