Principal's Message

Hello, Mariner Students and Parents.

I hope this week has gone well for you and you continue to be safe and healthy. Next week is officially Thanksgiving Week, but we will not be off the whole week as we have in the past. School will be in virtual session November 23rd, 24th and 25th. Thursday the 26th is Thanksgiving, a legal holiday, and Friday the 27th is also a legal holiday. The celebration of Thanksgiving kicks off the holiday season! I wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving filled with joy, love and laughter.

Included below for your information is an updated food distribution schedule for Thanksgiving from South Bay Community Services. Food distribution will return to Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday the following week.

Thank you and Go, Mariners!

Bettina E. Batista
