Dear Los Nietos SD families, 


Welcome to an exciting 2019-2020 school year at Los Nietos School District. We hope you had a restful summer and enjoyed time with your loved ones. 


Our administrators and staff are ready to kick-off another great year of learning for our LNSD students. I am happy to enter my 11th year serving this wonderful community as your Superintendent and my 28th year as an educator in this small but mighty District. Over that time, we have focused on building our community through education and ensuring that our students are academically and socially prepared for the future. 


Welcome to our District’s website, a site 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 that you become familiar with our annual events, staff and culture. 


We were pleased that last year the Los Nietos Middle School was recognized as one of 257 top schools in Los Angeles County as 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 and that the high quality instruction our teachers deliver have made a difference in helping our students overcome the socio-economic barriers they face.


I would like to introduce Dr. LaTanya Reeves, the new principal leading our California Distinguished School, Ada S. Nelson Elementary. Dr. Reeves has served as an assistant principal at the elementary, middle, and high school levels, and led instruction in many diverse learning environments. I am certain that she will be very successful as she shares her expertise with our students. 


I am also happy to announce a new partnership with The Boys and Girls Club of Whittier. The Club  will provide our students with an after-school program that aligns with our efforts in STEAM, healthy living, and good character building. I am excited to welcome them to the Los Nietos SD family. 


Finally, I invite you to join the conversation on our District and school social media channels. Help us tell our story and share the wonderful things happening by using the hashtag #LosNietosSD. Through these platforms you will be informed about upcoming events, district-wide announcements, student stories and much more. 


I am looking forward to another fantastic school year!
