Parents and Guardians,
We are closing in on the end of a wild 2020-2021 school year. This has been an adventure for all of us. I want to take this time to thank each and every one of you for all of your hard work to help our students navigate through this crazy year of remote learning. We are almost at the finish line, however, we cannot quit yet. Please continue to make sure your student(s) are logging in or completing their work. Every minute of their education is important. We are working on incentives for students who have worked hard on attending zoom classes and turning in assignments. More information will be out in our May newsletter, along with important end of the year dates and deadlines. Thank you for entrusting us with your child’s education. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me through email n.marquez@lagunaed.net or by phone #505-552-9200, #505-552-9091, or #505-240-1616.
