Words from our Principal

Crusader Families,

As we enter the holiday season, our students will need extra support and love. This season is already proving to be the most challenging due to COVID restrictions. Family events will be limited or cancelled and we want to make sure our students are safe and happy! I encourage you to keep your circles small for everyone's safety and perhaps try some new activities or traditions with your kids.

We have about a month left in this semester. Participating in classes and submitting work remains a priority for our students. Please encourage them to take advantage of before and after school tutoring and remind them that Asynchronous time is not free time! They can get so much done during the asynchronous portion of their classes, where there isn't live instruction, but plenty of teacher support.

Please tune in to the SUHSD board meeting on November 30th to get the latest update from the district. The plans for January will be shared at this meeting. You can stream the meetings live on YouTube.

Wishing you and your families a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving.
