We welcome our students back to school on August 9th with great excitement. On behalf of our Governance Team, I want to thank you for your ongoing and strong partnership. Our updated strategic directions reaffirm our commitment to all students receiving equitable access to high quality learning opportunities. Creating an environment where our students continue to grow and become critical thinkers who are compassionate and empowered to self-advocate and explore their passions requires a strong partnership between school, home, and the community.
Each year over the summer our team of professionals prepare for the next school year. In addition to the annual cleaning and maintenance, hiring new staff, ordering and delivering materials, much has to be accomplished in order to ensure students and staff have all that is necessary for a successful school year. The last few years, we have been able to modernize and build new facilities supported by Measure G. Over the summer, our teachers and staff take advantage of professional development, curriculum development, and opportunities to collaborate and prepare for the next school year. I am deeply grateful for the stellar team of certificated and classified staff and administrators who work extremely hard to support our students throughout the year.
After three years of managing COVID related matters, we have all become quite familiar with requirements and expectations. Mitigating COVID-19 risks by following the Department of Public Health Guidelines and requirements allowed us to support our students in school all last year as safely as possible. Thank you for working in partnership with us to make sure our students and staff are able to safely focus on learning.
We look forward to greeting our students on August 9th as they begin their new learning journey. You will receive more information from your children’s school sites to prepare for a wonderful and exciting new school year. Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year!
