A Message from Principal Hermosillo
Hello Castle Park Students and Families,
What a great start to the 2023-2024 school year! It was such a pleasure to have our students on campus and see their excitement about being back to school. We have received so much positive feedback from students and staff about the positive vibes on campus. Let's keep this positivity going as we enter Week 2 of the school Year!!
Our ASB students did an incredible job coordinating our first assembly of the year to introduce our staff. I was so impressed with the behavior and respect that our students demonstrated during the assembly. All students exemplified safe, respectful, and responsible behavior. Great job, Knights! It truly made me proud to be the Principal of our Castle Park Middle School Knights.
Please see below for important information to help your students continue with the transition back to school.

California Universal Meal Program in Schools
California is the first state to provide free meals to ALL students, regardless of income. All students may receive one breakfast and one lunch meal for free. Students will need their Student ID number to get their free meal. If your child would like an additional meal, they will need to pay for the second serving.
If you have not provided proof of residency and/or immunization records, you have until August 30 to submit these documents. After August 30, if your child is still missing the required documentation, they will be dropped from our enrollment. Please take time to complete the process. Information can be found on our website or below regarding what is required. If you have questions, please contact our registrar, Alejandra Romero at firstname.lastname@example.org.
