    Congratulations to our students, parents, and staff!  Our school has been recognized as a 2021 California Distinguished School based on our exemplary student performance in 2019/20 and 2018/19.

District Highlights

  • 5/26/22 Safety Message from Dr. Hurst

    This morning, students and staff at one of our schools, Grant Elementary in Richmond, had to briefly shelter-in-place because gunshots were fired in the area. Everyone is safe: no students, staff or families were harmed and the school was not targeted. We have been in contact with the Richmond Police Department about the incident.

    As we reach the last few weeks of the school year, I’d like to share an update with you about our mask policy. We will continue to follow the guidance from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and strongly recommend all students and staff wear a mask while at school or work.
