Cordelia Hills Closure Update 13
Dear Cordelia Hills Community,
It is always with a mix of emotions that I close a school year. This marks the end of my 4th year as Principal of Cordelia Hills, my 10th as a principal, and my 17th as an educator. I can't thank you enough for the support of my leadership and of our school community. A few thoughts as we close the year:
We don't have all the answers about COVID-19 and next school year. Our District is working diligently to make sure we return to school as much as safely possible. My personal hope is that we see students and see them a lot but I also want to ensure the safety of everyone who is a part of our community. Expect regular updates from FSUSD and be on the lookout for them.
When we do return, I plan on leading an examination of our practices with an eye on working to create concrete changes, especially as it relates to creating a campus steeped in anti-racism. While some will point to the diversity of our student body as a reason to avoid talking about Black Lives Matter and broader issues of race, justice and equity, as the Principal of Cordelia Hills, I can guarantee you that we are not insulated nor immune from the issues that are confronting our greater community and country.
In my heart, I know that our students, staff, and parents desire the opportunity to talk, to plan, and to create change. With this in mind, if you are interested in starting a dialogue about change on our campus, please reach out to me to express your interest. My email is SteveTr@fsusd.org or you can text or call me at 510-367-2550.
Virtual School Registration
I'd like to point out that there is some growing flexibility around moving between a school site and virtual school. The thought is that families would be able to enter/leave the virtual academy at the trimester point. Also, if you sign up and change your mind before school starts, please know there will be a warning before a final decision has to be made.

5th Grade Farewell Information
We are planning a reverse car parade for 5th grade students on the final day of school, Friday, June 12th. 5th grade families will be able to DRIVE through the main parking lot to be cheered and recognized for their time and contributions to Cordelia HIlls.
