Welcome to Del Sur!

Mission Statement

Del Sur School is a learning community that nurtures and celebrates excellence. Del Sur School fosters a positive collaborative culture and learning community where students are expected to master the California State Standards. Success is measured through continuous multiple assessments, evaluation of the assessment data, and reflective dialogue among our professional colleagues leading to the refinement of research based teaching strategies and interventions to reach all learners. Our students are accountable for the opportunities that they are provided to master the curriculum and are encouraged to feel safe enough to risk, grow, and achieve success as an educated, responsible, and caring member of society.

Message From the Principal

I am so pleased to welcome you to Del Sur K-8 School, home of the Dragons. Del Sur is a school where great things are happening each and every day. Last year, I served as vice principal of Del Sur alongside, Principal Mr. Barker. I am so excited to be the new principal.

At Del Sur School, our positive school environment provides students an opportunity to succeed academically as well as foster opportunities to become connected to their school and their learning. Our strong AVID program continues to grow as we now have teachers trained at all grade levels from kindergarten to 8th grade. This year, we have a new vice principal, Jessica Kott, joining our team and Judi Hynan, as our school counselor. I am very excited they will be part of the Del Sur family.

Del Sur is a great school because of the partnerships between our teachers, staff members, parents and the community. I look forward to your continued involvement in your child’s education and your participation in school events throughout the coming year. It is our goal to strengthen the home-school relationship. Parents have an open invitation to volunteer in, to participate in, and to share in the setting and achievement of our student’s goals for our children through school site council and the PTSA.

Our PTSA is a wonderful asset to our site by providing both their time and hard work as well as funding for our classrooms. Please join this group as our kids all benefit!

Our first day of school this year is August 8th. Our school instructional time is 7:45-1:55 for grades K-6 and 7:45-2:00 for all middle schools students. Please make sure that all students arrive on time daily, ready to learn. We look forward to seeing your students then.

Nicole Hernandez, Principal
