Superintendent's Message

Dear LOSD Families,

I am writing to you today to share some important information. Last week's national election has left many in our community feeling uncertain about future policies and practices that may impact their families. I am attaching a letter from Sheriff Jim Hart explaining the policy of the Santa Cruz County Sheriff Department regarding immigration. Attached also, is a flyer announcing a Community Immigration Forum in Watsonville that will be held this Sunday. In addition, district staff are working in collaboration with Santa Cruz City School District to organize a panel of experts on immigration for early December. More information about that event will be coming home soon.

Now that the election is over, it is our job to restate our core values as a school system-demonstrating that we respect and care for every person in our community. While each of us has political preferences and feelings about the outcome of last week's election it is important we ground ourselves in our shared values. I want to assure you that our district policies protect the rights of all students regardless of race, religion, gender, or documentation status and we will continue to work tirelessly to ensure the climate on our campuses reflect those policies. Our commitment is for our schools to be safe and affirming places for all students and their families. The diversity of our community and the cultures, languages, and religions that make up our school district continues to be one of our greatest strengths.

Our schools are a resource for families. Counselors and teachers have assisted students with concerns they have over the election and will continue to do so when the need arises. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. We are here to serve your families.

Sincerely,

Tamra Taylor
Superintendent Live Oak School District

SchoolBlocks offers a unique and powerful personalized search system. A member of the public, searching for "homework" might see an announcement from the school as the first result. However, if the user is logged in, they would see their teacher’s latest homework assignment as the top result.
