Principal's Message

Dear Park Parents and Guardians:

 

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year at Park School! Thank you for choosing our school for your child's education and for your continued patience during this ever fluid time.

 

The start of the new school year is fast approaching and school as we may have known it in the past, will look very different for your child. 

 

For the 2020-2021 school year, AUSD will begin in full Distance Learning beginning on Wednesday, August 12, 2020.  Park will continue to work closely with our district in accordance with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (DPH), the Los Angeles County Office of Education (LACOE) and changing health orders to determine the time to transition to hybrid learning.  

 

Teachers and staff work to prepare a rigorous and robust distance learning experience that will continue the legacy of A.C.C.E.S.S. to enriching opportunities for all students. Park School continues to be distinguished amongst Alhambra schools for its positive and warm environment that includes: Academic Rigor, Collaboration, Community and Parent Involvement, Environment that is Safe and Supportive, Specialized Programs, and Student Success.

 

I know that you have many questions regarding distance learning and Park School's plan for your child's education. I cordially invite you to join me for a general overview of Park School's distance learning plan.
