Principal's Corner

Spring Semester 2021

Dear Panther Families,

It’s hard to imagine that we are coming up on the one-year anniversary of distance learning. I know this has presented unimaginable challenges for most students, but I am extremely proud of how you have risen to the test. These unprecedented times have made us all appreciate many opportunities in education we often take for granted – spending time in a classroom with a teacher and friends, sports practices and games, club meetings, school rallies and much more! We will all welcome the day when our world returns to normal and we can enjoy these times again.

Please know that for that for now, we are here to support you in many ways. The school website has links to important information.

  • Counselors, while working from home, are available to assist you via email. Many of them of also have Google voice numbers. In addition, support groups are meeting via Zoom each week. Contact the school for details.
  • In-person assistance by grade level is available in the Learning Center, but space is limited, and seats will be available on a first-come first-served basis. Additional small group cohorts are meeting for English Learners and Special Education students. Contact your counselor for assistance.
  • Homework Help Hotlines are manned by teachers, bilingual instructional assistants and Cal-Soap tutors. Please take advantage of these resources if you need help with classroom work.
  • Technology support is available in the Learning Center and via the Tech Hotlines.
  • The office is open with staff available to assist you Monday – Friday during normal business hours.

Take care of yourselves and I look forward to seeing you soon!

Mrs. Herrera
