Greetings Colleagues,

I hope you all have had the opportunity for some rest and relaxation during the summer, as well as time to enjoy friends and family.  The first day of school is quickly approaching, and our students and parents are eager to start the new school year. The students of Eureka City Schools are truly fortunate to have a dedicated group of individuals like you supporting their learning, especially this year as we return to a more “normal” learning environment.

To kick off the new school year, I look forward to seeing each of you at our back-to-school meeting on Wednesday, August 18th.  Upon arrival, please come to the Eureka High School Auditorium Foyer where you will be welcomed by your principal or supervisor.  Due to Covid concerns, we are not able to serve continental breakfast this year.  At 8:00 a.m., we will proceed into the auditorium for our meeting.  A full schedule of professional development for the week is enclosed and posted on the website.  Please note ETA is inviting members to attend a voluntary meeting in the cafeteria prior to the 8:00 a.m. official welcome. 

As we start the new school year, please welcome the next generation of educators and support staff joining our team.  This year, we are focusing on strengthening our team.  More information on this will be provided on August 18th.  Unique this year, we will be welcoming back some of our students who have not had in-person instruction in nearly a year and a half.  This will create its own set of challenges but also an irreplaceable reunion of students and staff.  I challenge each of you to make the most out of this year to maximize student learning.

To set the stage, our staff has been meticulously working to prepare our sites for the school year ahead.  I would like to extend a big “thank you” to our teams and the work they have done to prepare for the upcoming school year!  As you arrive on August 18th, please note the construction on the new Jay Willard Gymnasium is well underway, eliminating the large lot in front of the old gym as a parking option.  The District Office (Marshall) parking lot is available in addition to street parking and the staff parking lot off of Del Norte Street.  Please allow a couple of extra minutes to find parking and to walk to the auditorium.
