Santa Susana News

AUGUST 14, 2023


Well, we made it through our first week of school and survived a little drizzle on the first day of school. This will be our first full week of the school year, so I expect a lot of tired friends by Friday. We are expecting a much warmer week, so please send your students to school in appropriate attire with lots of water.

Please read on for more updates.

Go Mustangs!

Stacy Walker, Principal

Thank you for practicing patience in the parking lots at drop off and pick up time. We know it is always a little bumpy at the beginning of the year as students figure out where to meet up with their siblings and families. It will get smoother in the coming weeks and a little patience goes a long way! Please remember to not block the open gates so staff may see all parents at dismissal.


Fliers were sent home on the first day of school for t-shirt and sweatshirt orders. Please note that the purple is a "heathered" or soft tee this year.

All orders are due on September 5th. We do not order extra or maintain an inventory, so please do not forget to order by the deadline.

Extra fliers are available in the office.
