Principal's Corner

Hello Dragon Families,

Happy New Year! We hope you had a restful winter recess with friends and family. It’s good to be back together again.

January and February tend to be our wetter months of the rainy season, especially with an El Nino year. We appreciate your patience and awareness in and around school when it rains. Remember to give yourself a little extra time and drive with caution. If you don’t see anyone on the blacktop or kindergarten yard, it means we’re gathering inside before school starts. We gather in the MPR for 1st thru 5th grades and the Little Theater for the kindergarteners.

Planning for the 2024-25 school year is already underway! If you’re interested in our Spanish Two-Way Immersion program for next year’s kindergarteners, be sure to attend one of our Parent Info Nights in February. If you know someone who resides within our district boundaries, they can apply as well. Also, siblings of current TWI students will also need to apply. Priority Registration will be from February 18 to March 8 this year.

Finally, COVID protocols are less restrictive now. It is recommended that students who test positive isolate for five days. They may return to school if:

  • Symptoms are not present, or are mild and improving AND at least 24 hours passed since resolution of fever without medication.  

  • Tests negative or symptoms have improved and/or not present.

Any kind of illness is concerning and we want to make sure children are given time to recover and prevent the spreading of viruses at school. We hope 2024 has started off well for you and wish you and your family good health! 

Warmest regards,

Thien Hua - Principal
