Dear LUSD Families and Staff,
It is my pleasure to introduce myself to you as your new interim superintendent for Linden Unified School District. Some of you may remember that I served in this position for five months in the Spring of 2016. The Board of Education has asked me to lead the District administration until July 1, 2021 or until a new permanent superintendent is hired and takes over the position. Having served in this position before and providing assistance to the District over the past few years, I believe that I can serve the needs of our students, staff and community well.
I plan in the first few weeks to visit all of the schools to talk with staff and students about the needs and issues at their schools. Clearly, one big task for all of us is to continue to open up our schools as the COVID-19 virus recedes. The Linden Unified Board of Education has aggressively pushed for students to be in school as much as is safely possible. We will continue to do this and plan for when students can fully return to in-class instruction. I want to thank the great dedication and devotion that the teachers, principals and staff have demonstrated during these difficult times. We all owe them a debt of gratitude for how they have handled the extraordinary demands that have been placed upon them.
Please feel free to communicate with me through my administrative assistant Grace Luke, at 887-8128 or firstname.lastname@example.org I will be in my office on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. I look forward to becoming reacquainted with the Linden students, staff and community.
Take Care and BE Safe,
