Dear Excelsior Students and Families,

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year at Excelsior! We hope that you are having a wonderful summer and that you will soon be ready for the start of a new school year at Excelsior. We are excited to welcome our returning students as well as families new to our school, and we are looking forward to the adventures this year will bring. 

The past successes celebrated at Excelsior School have been the result of strong relationships among students, families, and school staff. A commitment to regular communication will help us to continue to build these relationships. As we begin the year in a distance learning model, we want to provide an overview for all of our families so that you will know what you can expect in the coming weeks.

To help you ease into the year, here are a few other important items:
  • Student class placements will be available in PowerSchool on Tuesday, August 10th at 5:00 pm. At that time you will be able to log in to your PowerSchool parent portal to view your child’s class assignment. (If you need help with your password, please access the PowerSchool Help Guides on our district website.)
  • The first day of school for students is Wednesday, August 11th. 
  • Lists of recommended supplies for each grade level are posted on our Excelsior home page.
  • The district calendar can be found on our district website HERE
  • Additional information about your child’s educational experience will be provided by your child’s classroom teacher at Back to School Night on Wednesday, August 18th at 6:00 pm. 
  • STAR will be providing child care for the students in the Eureka School District. You can enroll online at https://main.starsacramento.org/
We will do our best to continue to keep you informed about our plans for the 2021-2022 school year as updated guidance is provided. We also strongly encourage you to read the emails that will come to you from our school and district throughout the year. These notifications will contain important information relating to our school and district events, activities, and timelines. I will also do my best this year to continue posting pictures and updates on our Excelsior School Facebook page so that you can stay in touch with our students' activities. 

If there is anything else we can do to help as you prepare for the start of the school year, please let us know. We are looking forward to a great school year!

Heidi Williams, Ed.D.
