Principal's Message

Dear Hazel Strauch Families, 
I hope you are relaxing, recharging, and getting ready for the start of a new school year!  The first day of school is Tuesday, August 17 and we are planning for students to return to in-person instruction 5 days a week. As we continue to work through the challenges of the pandemic, I feel fortunate to be part of the transition back to in-person learning, and I am eager and excited for what promises to be an amazing 2021/22 school year.  
My goal is to ensure that all children are healthy, happy and safe so they learn as much as they can and reach new levels of achievement. I look forward to working with you to ensure our students meet their academic goals and have a positive learning experience here at Strauch Elementary.   
Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns. Our office number is (916) 566-2745.  Enjoy the rest of your summer break and we will see you soon!
