Superintendent's Message

Dr. Mat Holton
Dear Chaffey District Students, Parents, and Guardians,
 
Students in the Chaffey District are completing their 1st semester of the 2021-2022 school year and preparing to take finals. I realize it has been an unusual 1st semester, with students and staff finally able to return to in-person instruction after the school closures caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, and I commend the students, teachers, and support staff for persevering through this difficult season. I am so proud of the way you have continually demonstrated new and innovative ways to overcome the obstacles presented by the COVID-19 pandemic during the past year and a half. I would like to reassure you that teachers, counselors, and administrators at your school site are committed to providing remediation opportunities for anyone who may have struggled during distance learning. They want you to succeed, and they are available to help you in any way that they can. Please call or email your teacher or school administrator if you need any assistance.
 
Students, I want to encourage you to finish 1st semester strong and then enjoy your much-deserved winter holiday break. Remember, if you need any help as you prepare for finals, it will be important for you to take advantage of interventions such as tutoring and individualized help during class time or teachers’ office hours. Support with finals and end-of-semester projects remain available for anyone who needs assistance.
 
Parents, please make sure that your student is using our 24-hour tutoring resource, Paper, if they need any help. If they encounter any difficulties along the way, please feel free to call your school or the District office (909-988-8511 ext. 2501) with any questions or concerns; we are happy to assist you. You may also check the “Resources” tab on our website for information about technology support, mental health services, and more. I want to thank you for the positive encouragement and support you have provided for your student and their teachers during 1st semester. The resilience and tenacity our students have demonstrated during this pandemic provide me with confidence that we will overcome any new hurdles, develop new skills, and amaze ourselves as we expand our expertise in navigating this ever-changing world. Thank you for your dedication and your patience.
 
Again, I want to thank you for the support and encouragement you continue to show our staff. We recognize all that you have done, and will continue to do, to assure your student’s success this year. We sincerely thank you! We commit to do all we can to help every student reach their goals.
 
Please do not hesitate to reach out to teachers, counselors, administrators, or my office if you need any support.
 
Stay safe!
 
Mathew Holton, Ed.D.
