Michael Corritone, Principal

It’s so hard to believe we are at the end of the school year. The shelter in place and school closure this spring helps to shine a light even more brightly on how important school is to our students and community. Most importantly though, I hope each one of our families has continued to stay healthy and safe during these challenging times.

I would like to say thank you to everyone who has given so much to our school and students throughout the year. The success of our students over the school year can be attributed to their hard work and the guidance, support and care they receive from everyone in our community. August will be a time of new beginnings and we will be welcoming our new kindergartners and their families, and the many new families who are moving into the community. It will also be a time to build upon our strengths as a school to meet the many challenges that lie ahead. I know we will meet these challenges in partnership and continue our work in the spirit of our school mission, “Beach school collectively ensures the learning and well-being of every student.”  I look forward to sharing updates with you over the summer and when we return in August. Messages will come from no-replies@piedmont.k12.ca.us.

Please also be on the lookout for a message from the TriSchool principals this Friday with directions on how to access your child’s final report card through Infinite Campus, which will be available starting at 3:00pm. Please note this term’s progress reports will have N/A (not assessed) for the benchmark section and will include narrative comments from your student’s classroom teacher related to the period of distance learning.

A few additional notes about the summer:

  • The virtual school office will be open Monday-Friday through June 17 from 8:00am-4:00pm.

  • The school office will reopen on August 1.

  • Over the summer you will receive instructions to update your Infinite Campus account so that we have the most current contact and health information for your child. In August, you will also receive an email prompting you to go to the Piedmont Store, which is run by PEF, and is how you join BPO, donate, and sign up for support groups.

  • The first day of school is Tuesday, August 11.

I hope our entire Beach community has a healthy and safe summer!

With gratitude,
