Dear El Monte Union Community,

The holiday season is upon us, and it is a wonderful time for celebration and reflection. I want to take a moment to recognize some of our District’s outstanding successes, which include our continued academic excellence, the amazing adaptability of our students and staff, and the ongoing compassion for each other and connection with our community that I witness every day. It has been an exciting and productive month at El Monte Union. Earlier this month, Mountain View’s very own Zoo Crew: Engineers Gone Wild! was recognized for excellence with a Golden Bell Award; El Monte High School teacher Joe Whisler was honored with the Bobby Salcedo Esperanza Award; we enjoyed student performances from our incredible performing arts programs; and the District’s annual Family Posada brought the El Monte Union community together for holiday fun. Each one our students and employees have played a vital role in helping our District thrive. I truly appreciate the dedication that I see on a daily basis throughout our classrooms and campuses. On behalf of the District and the Board of Trustees, I want to wish you all a safe and happy holiday. We are excited for the opportunities the new year will bring us and we look forward to seeing you back on Jan. 3, 2022.

We will continue to share information on COVID-19 vaccination opportunities in El Monte. As a reminder, you can view current guidance from our state and local health care agencies on slowing the spread of COVID-19 by visiting the Los Angeles Department of Public Health website.
