Principal's Message


I am so excited to start this school year in person. We have weathered some tough storms over the last two years, but we are finally starting to get some sense of normalcy returning.


While we are happy to be in person, we at Melrose take school safety very seriously. We will still require students and staff to wear masks while in class as well as sanitize their hands as they enter and exit classrooms. We are also diligent about cleaning classrooms each day. 

By working together we can keep each other safe.


Our teachers and support staff are working hard to provide engaging lessons that both challenge and support student learning. They are making magic happen as we work to support the whole student. Our Wellness Team is working to make sure that students' emotional health is being addressed as well.


Our school wide commitment to Keeping the High Five Alive is off and running as we reinforce the power of the High Five Rules:


  • Be Responsible

  • Be Respectful

  • Be Kind

  • Be Helpful

  • Be Safe


We are conducting our parent meetings each month to share ideas as well as hold our ELAC and SSC meetings to make sure that our stakeholders' voices are heard and embraced.


We remain stronger together. Here is to a great 2021-22 school year.


-Mrs. Hernandez, Principal
