Principal's Message

Hello Dewey Families:

It's hard to believe, but we only have two weeks until the end of the school year! Spring fever is definitely upon us. Even though there's only a short amount of time left in the school year, there's still a lot of teaching and learning going on at Dewey. If your child has to miss a day, they can still receive positive attendance credit by attending their synchronous lessons and/or completing their assigned work. Every day counts!

Speaking of everyday, you should have received notification last week that SJUSD schools will be on 5 day a week full day schedule for the 2021-22 school year. We are so excited to welcome all of our Dewey Tigers back to a full time schedule in the fall. Looking for options other than the traditional in-person learning? Check out www.sanjuan.edu/fall2021 for more information about home schooling and a new virtual academy.

Have a wonderful week!

Ms. Parsley, Principal
