A Message from the Superintendent

Dear Leggett Valley Unified Families at Whale Gulch & Leggett Valley Schools,

Welcome back to a new school year filled with promise, excitement, and endless possibilities!  The start of a new school year is a special time, marked by the return of familiar faces and the anticipation of new friendships.  Our teachers and staff have been working tirelessly over the summer to ensure an inclusive, enriching, and supportive learning environment where every student can thrive and achieve their full potential.

We believe that parent involvement and engagement are crucial to the success of our students.  We encourage you to take an active role in your child’s education by attending school events and communicating regularly with your child’s teacher.  We offer various ways for parents to stay connected and informed, such as our district website, social media pages, and email newsletters.

As we embark on this new school year, let us remember that we are a united community committed to the success and well-being of our students.  With your partnership, we are confident that we will achieve remarkable things together.

Thank you for entrusting us with the privilege of educating your children.  Here’s to a successful and inspiring academic year!
