In the upcoming weeks, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health will be making visits to our school sites to confirm that we are compliant with the directives we’ve been given. The visitors will also be ensuring that all staff members on site know what the protocols are, and how to protect both students and staff as they return to the campus.

We seem to be moving slowly into fall. Unfortunately, the heat has continued to make fighting the fires in California difficult, and the smoke has produced unhealthy air quality throughout our state and especially in our Valley. We are approaching the end of our first quarter of the school year, and you should anticipate receiving a progress report for each of your children in the mail following the close of this first quarter on October 9th.
We are especially concerned for our neighbors in the Antelope Valley who have been victims of several fires, and we join others in trying to support efforts to help families safely return home. Congratulations and thanks for many years of dedicated service to members of our staff who are choosing to retire at the end of September. We will certainly miss our colleagues and our students and families will miss the special ways in which they have supported our students.

Esperanza’s School Plan offers the on-going opportunity to plan, implement, monitor, and evaluate a meaningful standards-based curriculum for all students. The goals, objectives, and activities have been identified and written based on needs expressed by students, parents, and staff input. These goals, objectives, and activities are established to improve and focus instruction at Esperanza’s Elementary School enabling students to meet grade level, district, and CA state standards.
The ELAC, School Site Council, and Grade Level Leadership Teams collaborated to develop and refine the plan and will continue to work towards the ongoing implementation, evaluation and revision of this plan as needed. Esperanza Elementary School's essential philosophical cornerstones include the concept that quality school programs are based on shared decision-making by all staff members in meeting school, district, and state guidelines.
