Dear Los Nietos SD families,
Welcome to an exciting 2020-2021 school year at Los Nietos School District (LNSD). We hope you had a safe summer and enjoyed the time with your loved ones.
The District's top priority has always been the safety and well-being of our students and staff. In light of the evolving challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, the District and the ReOpening Taskforce have created a Distance Learning Model for our LNSD students following the guidance provided by the California Department of Education and the Los Angeles County Office of Education.
Our administrators and staff are excited to connect with our LNSD students virtually! Our Los Nietos family misses seeing all of our students each day, and I know that we all wish the year was beginning under better circumstances. Nevertheless, I am confident that the safe and strong framework our district staff has built along with our stakeholders will allow our students to learn and grow throughout the year, even in the face of this crisis.
I am happy to enter my 12th year serving this wonderful community as your Superintendent and my 29th year as an educator. Over that time, we have focused on building our community through education and ensuring that our students are academically and socially prepared.
Our District's website was designed to provide the community with information about the exciting things happening in our District, our three elementary schools, and our middle school. We hope you visit often and become familiar with our annual events, staff, and culture.
We were pleased that last year the Los Nietos Middle School was once again recognized as one of 278 top schools in Los Angeles County closing the achievement gap for low-income Latino and African-American students. We are thrilled that our school was recognized for helping our students excel academically. The high-quality instruction our teachers deliver has made a difference in helping our students overcome the socio-economic barriers they face.
We will be sure to keep you updated through our District and school social media platforms. Through these platforms, you will receive on Distance Learning updates, district-wide announcements, teacher and student stories, and more. Join the conversation, and be sure to use the hashtag #LosNietosSD when sharing your Distance Learning experiences for the 2020-21 school year!
I am looking forward to another fantastic school year! Stay well and stay safe.
