A Message From Our Superintendent

Welcome to the 2018-19 School Year

Dear Fontana Community,

On behalf of the Fontana Unified School District Board of Education, welcome to the 2018-19 school year! We hope you had an enjoyable summer and that our students are looking forward to a year of learning, achievement and life changing experiences.

The new school year will bring with it many changes. Several of our schools will have new principals: Sandra Loudermilk at Date Elementary, Amanda Colon at Locust Elementary, Lauri Martin at Palmetto Elementary, Dr. Annette Beasley at Randall Pepper Elementary, Dr. Moises Merlos at Alder Middle, and Dr. Dustin Saxton at A.B. Miller High School.

While there have been changes, our commitment to your child’s education remains resolute. Each day, we continue to prioritize the needs of students first in our decision-making process. The Fontana Unified School District is dedicated to delivering a quality education to our students so that our graduates will be prepared for success in college, career, and life.

Parent involvement is important to the success of students in school. In order to help your children attain their goals, we encourage you to be involved in their day-to-day educational experience. In addition, we strongly encourage your participation in their school by attending Back-to-School Nights, Parent-Teacher Conferences, Open Houses, and other school activities.

It is our honor to work together with you as partners in your children’s education.

Best Wishes,

Randal S. Bassett
