Hello Locust Families!

Each and every staff member is 100% dedicated to providing a safe learning environment where students thrive both academically and socially. Our goal is that every student receives the positive support he/she needs to experience academic success and meet his/her highest potential! We are focused on preparing our students for success in college, their careers and the 21st century! We believe that all students can and will learn! Our students deserve the best education to open the doors of opportunity in their future! At Locust we are committed to providing an instructional program that will help open the doors of opportunity for them in their future!
Our Mission Statement
The mission at Locust Elementary School is to provide ALL students with an equitable and high-quality education, thereby developing the foundation for them to become compassionate, responsible and successful members of society.
We believe that the support of parents and community partnerships are critical to student success! We invite you to participate in the educational experiences of your child. Please sign up for the “Q” Parent Connection!- https://sis.fusd.net/ParentPortal it will help you stay current with your child. We have many opportunities for parents and families to become involved at Locust Elementary School. We hold regular School Site Council and Site English Learner Parent Advisory Council meetings. We also provide a time for parents to come and ask questions, share ideas and discuss concerns during our Coffee with the Principal Meetings. Joining the PTA as a member and helping with PTA events and fundraisers is another great way to get involved! We know that parenting children isn't always easy so we also offer many parent workshops to help parents understand how they can support their children's academic success. Additionally, families are invited to attend our Back-to-School Night, Parent-Teacher Conferences and Open House. We appreciate you and your participation in these great events!
We look forward to another exciting and successful year working together!
