Dear El Monte Union Community,

Congratulations to our El Monte Union Class of 2020 graduates, a courageous and resilient group of scholars who persevered despite the disruption to their final months of high school.

I am touched by how our staff, parents and community came together to make their senior year special, creating and embracing new ways to celebrate their achievements, including through car parades. Celebrations will continue with formal ceremonies in November, or as soon as it is safe to do so.

I also want to take a moment to recognize our classified and certificated retirees, who have collectively dedicated 750 years to our District, as well as Classified Employee of the Year Faviola Salazar from Arroyo High School and our District Parent Volunteer of the Year Natalie Vasquez from South El Monte High School! We are grateful for your ongoing support of our schools and students!

To help support our community, free breakfast and lunch grab-and-go meals will be available on Tuesdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to noon at El Monte, Arroyo and Mountain View high schools. Other meal distribution sites are available here.
As you know, distance learning will continue with summer school, which begins June 26 for returning students and July 27 for incoming freshmen. We look forward to seeing everyone, even if just remotely.

The safety of students and staff is our highest priority. As we begin planning for what school will look like in the fall, we are asking parents, students and staff to fill out our reopening of schools survey and participate in our June 29 virtual community forum to learn more.
For now, we hope you all have a safe and enjoyable summer.
