Superintendent's Message

Superintendent Mat Holton
Chaffey District Students, Parents, and Families,
 
I hope you are having an enjoyable summer. We look forward to welcoming our incoming freshmen, the class of 2026, as well as our sophomores, juniors, and seniors on Wednesday, August 10, 2022 when we begin the 2022-2023 school year. I encourage all students to begin the school year focused and determined to be successful. We will support you any way that we can to ensure you accomplish your goals! 
 
We realize that parents and students may have numerous questions about academic and extra-curricular programs, technology, additional academic and mental health support, and much more, and we further realize that this correspondence cannot address all questions; however, please know we are committed to providing you with frequent communication over time to ensure that your student has a safe and successful experience.
 
The pandemic created many lingering problems that continue to affect our community, and students may return with a variety of academic, social, and mental health challenges still confronting them. Some of their academic setbacks have been resolved during our extensive summer school programs; however, moving forward, the District's comprehensive support plan will provide students and families with an array of programs to assist students, which include expanded learning opportunities, in-person tutoring (as well as ongoing access to an online tutoring hotline, PAPER, which students can access 24 hours a day/seven days a week), Social-Emotional Learning, mental health resources, mentors, and access to technology. Additionally, the District will continue to provide a Chromebook device to every student, provide technology support and connectivity when available, and continue to use the Canvas learning platform to support teaching and learning.
 
Finally, I want to thank you for your ongoing patience and support as we continue to navigate the difficulties presented by the COVID-19 global pandemic during the past few years. While conditions have improved, and we return to school safely, the pandemic is not over. The District will continue to follow state and local guidelines and recommendations as warranted to keep our students and staff safe. 
 
Your school’s principal and I will continue to communicate with you in the coming days through automated calls, email, social media, and our District website. We are here to answer your questions and address your concerns. I look forward to partnering with all of you to make sure that students are engaging in their schooling in healthy and constructive ways as together we help them prepare for their college and career goals. 
 
Thank you!
 
Mathew Holton, Ed.D.
