Principal’s Message: 

Dear Huff Families,


We are eagerly planning for the 2020-2021 school year.  Next week we welcome back our wonderful staff and even though we won’t get to see them personally, we are excited to start getting ready for our new school year. 


To learn more about distance learning and get a chance to ask questions before school starts, please join me at our first Principal’s virtual coffee on Monday, August 10th from 5-6PM. You must register to join. Information on classroom assignments will also be coming out soon. Please know that we take into consideration many different factors when placing students in classes and we try to balance the classes by using data from the previous year. You are welcome to reach out to me if you have any questions but know that we do not take teacher requests.


Next week we will be distributing school supplies, chromebooks to all students and our 2020-2021 Huff t-shirt provided by the PTA. In order to avoid large crowds, please adhere to the schedule. If you are not able to attend on your day, please wait for the next distribution schedule. More information will be sent the first week of school. Please do not come on campus if you have been feeling sick and please don’t forget to wear your mask. Looking forward to seeing everyone. 


Sincerely,

Arline Siam
