Sept. 30, 2020 - Dear Torrey Pines Families,

Thank you for the incredible birthday wishes and attention! Your thoughtfulness and generosity were touching, and the Distribution Day birthday memories will have a special place in my heart for a long time to come. Please save the date for our next Distribution Day, Oct. 30.

Over the next few weeks, the teachers and I will be meeting to discuss our plans for Phase 1 instruction. We will share information related to what this looks like at our school as soon as it is available.

We still need one more parent to serve on our School Site Council (SSC).The SSC is a group of 10 stakeholders who are responsible for monitoring student progress at Torrey Pines. The SSC uses student data to make recommendations for structural and budgetary decisions on campus. It is important to have all five parent representatives in this group so your voice can be heard. This would be one place where parents could communicate their needs during the Phase 1 plan.

In addition, we are in need of a parent who would be willing to attend the District’s English Learner Advisory Council (DELAC) once a month (via Zoom) and report back to the SSC. The next DELAC meeting is tomorrow, Thursday, Oct. 1, at 5.30 pm. If you are willing to represent TPES at this meeting, or if you would just like more information, please reach out to me here.

As always, we appreciate your support of student learning during these unique times. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.


Ms. Richard
