Superintendent's Message


A final update regarding the issues surrounding the poor air quality this week - the LGHS football game scheduled for this afternoon/evening has been cancelled and will be rescheduled.  In addition, we continue to cancel all athletic events and activities.  We appreciate your support and patience as we work to protect the health and safety of our students and school community.

The following link provides information about current air quality - a good resource for everyone as we head into the weekend.  AIRNow  


As you know, local districts, including LGSUHSD, took action yesterday to cancel all outdoor athletic events and practices. Today, the air quality continues to be problematic. As a result, local districts, in collaboration with CCS, have made the following decisions:
1. All CCS athletic events are cancelled for today.
2. All outdoor practices are cancelled for today.
3. The SHS vs MVLA football game (for tomorrow, Friday) is cancelled.
4. The LGHS vs. Homestead football game (for tomorrow, Friday) is pending and a determination will be announced tomorrow.

We continue to keep the victims of these fires in our thoughts - an incredibly tragic situation impacting so many.

The 2017-2018 school year is underway and I am very excited about the work that’s happening in our schools.  We started the school year by opening the new Music Building at Saratoga High.  Your support of Measure E made this possible and reinforces the district and community commitment to the arts and providing options for students.  Work at Los Gatos High on Music and Classroom Buildings reinforces that message and is underway. 

We dug into the work we committed to around equity and diversity from day one of the school year – with all staff participating in training with Epoch Education, and then creating site teams to continue to lead the work. 

21st century learning continues to evolve.  All teachers, staff and students have access to G-Suite - both a technological enhancement and way to promote equity of access to curriculum and educational resources for our students. 

In the October issue of the Superintendent’s Quarterly (available by clicking here), I will share more about these and other topics.  I am proud of the work happening across our campuses and honored to be part of this district.
