Thanksgiving Message from the Superintendent of HLPUSD



A Message from the Superintendent:


We are always happy when Thanksgiving approaches because this occasion gives us the opportunity to appreciate and express our gratitude to all those who have worked together on remaining focused on the important work of teaching and learning. Despite the challenges that we may face on the state or national levels, we, as a District, have a great deal for which to be grateful.


Our students are thriving both within and beyond the classroom as a result of their continuing efforts, the efforts of their teachers, administrators and support staff members. An ever strengthening partnership with our community was expressed by the voters in supporting our schools through a bond that will bring forward 21st Century Classrooms.


While there is anticipated uncertainty as we face a time of transition at the national level, what every family can be assured of is our District’s commitment to focus on serving each of our students every day. It is very appropriate that the most recent resolution passed by the Board of Education was on celebrating inclusion. The District-wide belief in celebrating diversity and inclusivity encompasses all of our students -- be it culture, race, language, religion or gender identity. We have welcomed and continue to welcome all students --  PreK through adult -- who walk into our District.


Today, I want to reassure students and families that we are steadfast in providing services to all of our students and will not deny any services nor be a part of enforcement actions based on immigration status. All of us are here, teachers, counselors, support staff, and administrators stand ready to assist every student. We are committed to supporting the families that make up our District.


Thanksgiving is about hope for peace and kindness. It speaks of new immigrants seeking a new home where they could pursue a future full of hope and prosperity. Through hard work and help from their neighbors, these immigrants celebrated a fall harvest with gratitude. These are lessons that we continue to teach in our schools. Please cherish all we have to be thankful for and share kindness with one another.


Yours in education,


Cynthia Parulan-Colfer

Superintendent of Schools

We are a Peanut-Free School!


We are asking our parent community to assist us in our efforts to keep our students safe by refraining from sending peanut products to school including peanut butter or products containing peanut flour or peanut oil for breakfast, snack, lunch, class parties, or school events.  An additional safety measure includes reading labels carefully to make sure products do not contain traces of peanuts/nuts or have been processed in a plant or equipment that process nuts.  Finally, please ensure that your child washes his/her hands with soap and water before leaving for school if he or she had peanut products for breakfast.
