Welcome Back!

Dear Colonial Acres Families:                                                                                                                 

 

On behalf of the entire Colonial Acres staff, we want to welcome parents, guardians and students to a new year at Colonial Acres Elementary School.  We look forward to working with you and your children in their educational journey.

 

My name is Kathy LaCome and it is my sincere pleasure to be returning as the principal of Colonial Acres Elementary School. This will be my fourth year working with this amazing community.

 

We are lucky to have Mr. Olivares continuing at Colonial Acres as our Vice Principal. He has worked hard to improve academic outcomes for our students and to also enhance our climate and culture as a school community. He is excited to come back and is looking forward to continuing his work not only with Colonial Acres, but with Hesperian Elementary School as well.

 

We anticipate a most successful year as the school community continues to support the academic, social, and emotional growth of your child here at Colonial Acres Elementary School.

All San Lorenzo Unified students are eligible for free breakfast every day from 7:45 to 8:05 AM.  Please join us every morning for a no-cost breakfast beginning at 7:45 AM. Applications for free/reduced lunch are available in the school office.

 

Important:  Do not send your children to school before 7:45 AM as there is no supervision prior to this time.  Do not park in the STAFF ONLY parking lot.  This is a safety hazard for our staff and students. When children are dismissed at the end of the day, they are to go directly home or to childcare at that time.  They are not to remain at school as there is no supervision after dismissal.  Thank you for adjusting your schedule to assist us with the care and welfare of your child.

 

Should you have any questions and/or concerns regarding your child(ren) during the school year, please call the school at (510) 317-4500 or contact us via e-mail at klacome@slzusd.org or rolivares@slzusd.org.
