Echo Info-Summer Edition

Dear Families,

We hope you are all enjoying your break.

This edition of the Echo Info will offer some summer reading/activities and give you access to the supply lists for classes next fall. As we prepare for our reopening in the fall, we are happy to be featured in the La Jolla Light!

We would like to remind you of the required red polo for field trips, navy blue P.E. T-shirt, and optional spirit gear available on the Land’s End website, so you have ample time to take advantage of summer sales and limited-time free shipping offers. More information here.

Have a great summer!

2020-21 Calendar


Head of School

🎉Dear SDFAS community,

I am writing to share excellent news. We have received word from the Board of the San Diego Unified School District of their unanimous vote to approve our school’s permanent take-over of the La Jolla Preschool Academy effective July 1, 2020. Integration of this substantial amount of additional space is a game-changing development for SDFAS. It solves the most pressing needs of our emerging Covid-19 reopening plan and also opens doors for the future.

Our new corner of campus has a separate entrance off Cardeno Drive. The additional three buildings can house up to six large classrooms (or else five classrooms and a series of office spaces). The acquisition of these additional classrooms and expansive new outdoor play areas will enable us to properly physically distance our students all over campus. For example, in our A, B, and C buildings (current Elementary and MS campus), we can now move forward with our bold plan to remove nine classroom dividing walls over the next six weeks to create spacious double-size classrooms. The possibility to accommodate normal size classes despite physical distancing requirements makes us one of among just a few lucky schools in San Diego to have the ability to comfortably allow for the entire student population to be on campus five days a week, for full school days, in every school division.

I will write again very soon, as well as regularly throughout the summer, to share other important pieces of information. 

Warmest summer wishes to you and your children,

Mark
