Superintendent's Message

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year!
We know the past 18 months have been difficult for everyone. Thank you for your support, patience, and understanding throughout school closure. Our community is excited to return to normal as we continue to make strides combatting COVID-19. A safe return to full-time, in-person instruction is an amazing milestone in this ongoing process. 
While we are all excited to begin the 2021-2022 school year, our campuses and operating procedures will be different than they were pre-pandemic. Since March 2020, the South Bay team has been planning and preparing for the reopening of our schools. We have developed new procedures, systems, and guidelines to ensure the health and safety of the District community. We have added HEPA air scrubbers to all sites, installed portable hand washing stations, received personal protective equipment, and adapted to continuously evolving health and safety guidance from the California Department of Public Health.
On behalf of the entire team, we are grateful to have you in South Bay and look forward to making this school year a great one. Thank you for your partnership in your child's education.
