Principal Message:

Happy Thursday! Aside from the few really hot days and our early release days, we are off to a great start! It was wonderful to meet some of you and our students. I want to thank all of you for your cooperation and patience as we navigated through our first heat early release days. We understand it is not ideal, but because the temperatures were not cooling down as they normally do in the evenings, our building was getting increasingly warm as the high 90 degree days continued. There have been some questions asked about the process for deciding heat days. Here is a district resource that might be helpful for understanding the process, if you click HERE.

Our Back to School Night has been rescheduled for Thursday August 31, 2023 from 5:00 to 6:00 pm. We will begin with a short welcome and introduction of our teachers and staff. There will be a few announcements and then you will be released to hear a short presentation from your child’s teachers. There will be two scheduled sessions for presentations by teachers for those parents with multiple students. The sessions will be 5:15-5:35 and 5:40-6:00.

I Looking forward to seeing you at Back to School Night

In Partnership,

Ana Mendoza (Interim Principal)
