Arleta School



    August 17, 2017

    Dear Arleta Parents and Community,

    I hope that you are enjoying the final weeks of August. Please know that we are hard at work preparing for a smooth opening to the school year. This evening I am attending a planning meeting for Community Care Day, which is coming up on Saturday August 26th, from 9:00-12:00. Please come out and help us get our grounds ready for the first day of school.  

    We are in the process of making some changes to our front office staff. Our School Secretary, Kristy Carlson, is with us in the mornings until 11:00 am and at Hosford Middle School in the afternoons. Our new Principal's Secretary, Theresa Giambalvo, is finishing up her work at Whitman School, and will be with us full time very soon. I am working on getting a substitute secretary to fill in in the afternoons until Theresa is with us full time, and until that person is in place our office will be closing at 11:00 am, so please come in early for registration. 

    I am also very excited about some additions to our staff for next year and look forward to sharing specifics soon, once everyone has been approved by our Human Resources Department.

    Take Care,


    Seth Jones
