Director's Message

The time has come for our 2021-22 school year to begin!  This year, we are looking forward to moving past the Pandemic and working together to continue to advocate for the education, safety, and well-being of our students.  We are coming together as schools and as a community to educate our students through rigorous standards based instruction, while advocating a social emotional health.  Every student in our community now has technology at home.  We have overcome the technological divide between those with access and those without.  Our teachers, students, and families are better equipped in the use of technology from our experience last year and becoming from a sense of responsibility to our students and community.  We will continue to provide the best education and address all challenges diligently to support all students’ needs. We will continue to nurture critical thinkers, collaborators, and creators.  We move forward with caution, but most importantly with hope.  We are the Lincoln Heights and El Sereno Community of Schools.  We represent our students.  Our students represent our future.
