Principal's Message

Welcome Mrs. Hernandez, Melrose Principal! 

Welcome back to the 2019-2020 school year. My name is Nicole Hernandez and I am the new principal at Melrose. I come to Melrose with 22 years in the educational field. I was a teacher, in various grades, for 14 years, a Teacher on Special Assignment focusing on ELD, Technology, and working with new teachers for 2 years, and I have been a principal of a K-8 school and an elementary school with over 1100 students for the last 6 years. I am so excited to be here! 

I am a firm believer in working closely with our students, teachers, families, and community as we all want the same thing… for your student to be successful academically and social emotionally. This year we will  be focusing on “Keeping the High Five Alive.” By being respectful, responsible, kind, safe, and helpful we can continue pointing to success here at Melrose.


Mrs. Hernandez 




We welcome the day at Melrose with a few words of wisdom and a reminder that your choices determine the outcome of your day.  It is my hope that every single student at Melrose will choose to put their study skills to good use and strive to achieve the academic success that is necessary to thrive in our society.       



Empezamos el día en Melrose con unas cuantas palabras de sabiduría y un recordatorio que nuestras decisiones determinan el  resultado de nuestro día.  Es mi esperanza que cada uno de los estudiantes de Melrose decida poner en uso las destrezas de estudiar para realizar un éxito académico necesario para prosperar en nuestra sociedad.
