Dear Leggett Valley Unified School District families, this is Dr. Ritchley, your Superintendent. Welcome back to another exciting school year. You will be receiving a welcome back letter from the District soon. I have attached the letter to this communication. If you have any questions or concerns, my cell phone number is (760) 401-6597. I look forward to seeing everyone real soon! Sincerely, Jeffrey A. Ritchley, Ed.D.
Good Evening Parents, Students, and Caregivers: The County Health Department Dr. Coren has asked all staff and students to continue masking indoors for two more weeks due to our COVID status countywide. This is why he has kept the mask mandate going for so long. He personally requests that all school leaders send his message of please continue to wear masks indoors for two more weeks. I will be encouraging all staff and students to continue to wear masks indoors for two more weeks, and after two weeks we will reevaluate. This is not mandatory. Personally, I will follow his science and continue to wear a mask myself, and model good citizenship the best I can. As your leader, I will double down on his request by rewarding all students & staff that wear a mask during class the next two weeks by providing a pizza party from your favorite pizza place, and a choice day the same afternoon to help raise morale. Please have grace on each other as we slowly transition back to regular life. I look forward to having some pizza and doing some choice activities with you.
