Message from the Principal

Good evening Cavaliers,

We have concluded our first week of professional development as we prepare for the start of Distance Learning on Monday April 20, 2020. By now, our teachers and staff have reached out to each student to check-in and we will continue to follow up with those that we have not been able to connect with and those that require additional assistance.

This week, our teachers and staff will continue to receive professional development and plan for Distance Learning. We will continue to check-in with students and provide enrichment activities.

I have received several inquiries about retrieving music instruments, iPads and other personal items that were left at school. At this time, out of an abundance of caution. we have received guidance to postpone the pick up of those items until further notice. I apologize for the inconvenience.

I have also included a link to our district web page where you can find the latest information regarding our school closures, meal distribution and additional resources. I highly suggest you taking a look at the attached resources, especially those aimed at supporting students throughout this difficult time.

Thank you!

Julio Alcalá
