FROM THE PRINCIPAL'S DESK
Dear Fisher Families,

Happy St. Patrick’s Day and St. Baldrick’s Day to our Fisher Families! 

I hope you are enjoying these sunnier, longer days. They are a sure sign of Spring!  

Spring is also the time where we begin our planning for the 2021-2022 school year. We are so excited to be planning for a full return next year! While we know there may be some minor adjustments we will need to make to stay safe, we are looking forward to offering our full Fisher schedule to our students. 

Be on the lookout for a separate email and correspondence around our Electives Preference process. I will include it again in next week’s Fisher Flyer. 

Coming your way early next week is the On Ramp Interest form. I will also include that in next week’s Fisher Flyer. This is your opportunity to include your student as a Roomer for their core subjects and for certain electives.  

Thank you for your careful review of all these important materials. As always, please contact me with any questions (mlonhart@lgusd.org). 

Thank you. 

Take care and stay well.

Mary Lonhart, Principal
