Information from the Superintendent's Office

August 17, 2016

Dear LCUSD Families,

Welcome Back to School!  I hope each and every member of our LCUSD Community has experienced a positive and successful start to the new school year.  I have enjoyed being at the school sites to welcome you back and have appreciated the enthusiasm with which students, teachers, staff and families are greeting each other and the start of the new school year.

One of the District’s primary areas of focus over the summer was to hire a superior cohort of new certificated staff members to fill our instructional and counseling vacancies and to join our outstanding veteran staff in providing students with an exceptional educational experience in LCUSD.  In the midst of a statewide teacher shortage, we were able to hire outstanding educators – dedicated professionals who will continue the tradition of excellence in delivering instruction at our school sites.  I have mentioned our new hires in my talks with many of you, but I wanted to share with you a brief background on each of these amazing professionals so that you can help me in extending a warm and supportive welcome at LCE, PCR, PCY, LCHS 7/8 and LCHS 9-12.  Please see below a brief resume snapshot for the certificated staff we are proud to have join our stellar instructional teams at each site.

I look forward to working closely with you throughout the year to ensure the best for our students.


Wendy Sinnette
