Welcome Message

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! 

I hope you had a chance to relax and restore your energy this summer in anticipation of our new school year. I am excited to welcome you back and to continue our work together in support of all our students, families and each other.

Through our intentional emphasis on the whole child and developmental learning environments, we remain focused on our end goal: to inspire and ensure students recognize their talents to excel, become empowered learners, and make valuable contributions to a dynamic global community.

The Salinas City Elementary School District is dedicated to creating belonging for all our students and families and empowering our students by offering multiple opportunities for student success:

  • Preschool (full day and half day). More information can be found here.
  • Transitional Kindergarten (4 year olds): More information about enrolling your 4-year-old child for transitional kindergarten, or enrolling children at any grade, can be found here.
  • Virtual Academy: Families may opt to enroll their child/ren in grades TK-6 in the Salinas City Virtual Academy
  • Dual Immersion in Spanish is offered at six of our 15 schools. For more information click here.
  • Expanded Learning: All afterschool care is from school dismissal until either 6:00 PM. Click here for more information.

The Student and Parent Information Handbook provides the rights and responsibilities of the parents, guardians, and students in the Salinas City Elementary School District. Each student will be given a paper copy of this handbook on the first day of school.

We are fortunate for the outstanding teaching, classified, and administrative staff who support our students and families in every way possible. We are grateful for the educational partnerships with our parents and in our community. Together, we are collectively making this vision a reality.
