Joan MacQueen Middle School

Principal Message

Good Evening Dust Devils!

Wow! What a difference a week makes. This is Joan MacQueen's proud principal Casey Currigan. I hope this last week has not been too stressful. I do want all of our students to know that their teachers are thinking about them, and if they need something, all they have to do is reach out and ask, and we will do what we can to support them. I want to say thank you to:

Shannon McCarthy-Beasly, our Child Nutrition Director. She and her team have been preparing meals every day and serving them at Boulder Oaks Elementary. This past week has seen all of our District come together. Our administrative staff have broken down over ten computer carts to make sure every student in Alpine who needs a Chromebook has access. Jane Smith, Edna Murillo, and Yvette Maier have been working to ensure students have access to social-emotional support. Our teachers have been reaching out and connecting in a multitude of ways.

Moving forward, the Joan MacQueen staff is meeting online tomorrow to develop our plan to support students moving forward. Additionally, we will continue to provide the most updated information from the California Department of Education and the San Diego County Office of Education. Should you have specific questions, please email ccurrigan@alpineschools.net
