    Dear Fairburn Avenue Elementary School Parents,

    Welcome to the 2020 - 2021 school year!  I hope this message finds you well and safe. It is with gratitude that I write to you as your new principal. I am very excited to be grafted into this wonderful community of families and look forward to a successful year as we partner to give our children a world-class education. There are many activities and learning experiences awaiting your child!

    We have an incredible group of teachers, office staff, grounds team as well as support staff ready to team to be here for your children. We have an outstanding parent support group who is working very hard to fill in the gap between our regular school budget and the needs of our students. Congratulations to all of the students, staff and families for all of your hard work, perseverance and patience last year. 

    We begin this school year with many unknowns and, as a parent myself, I know that we all have a lot of questions about the unknowns including instruction, schedules and activities. At this time what we do know is that we will begin the year 100% virtually and that there will be guidelines coming soon from the district regarding instructional time for each day and each week. At the same time, I have already been working with staff, FAB and SSC to draft ideas and plans to be ready once we know more information. 

    The first order of business is for me to have opportunities to meet and greet the families. In the next few weeks, I will share more information on how we can get together for introductions. You may already know but we will welcome a new teacher, but not new to you, this year. Coach Sasha will now be Teacher Sasha.

    Finally, in anticipation of a great year to come, we want to be sure that all of our families are signed up for the Parent Portal so that we receive our full school funding. Information to support you is attached to this email. Our new West LA Community of schools website at

    In the coming weeks, we will be holding opportunities to provide information you may need to access Parent Portal enrollment. I have no doubt that every family at Fairburn will be ready and enrolled in Parent Portal by August 18th if you have not already accessed it. Enjoy the rest of your summer and I look forward to sharing more details about our virtual enrollment and updates as soon as they are available.
