Dear Matanzas Families,


Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year!

 I would like to extend a warm welcome to the parents and students of Matanzas School for the 2019-2020 school year.  I would also like to offer a special welcome to the new 4th graders and to those of you new to the Matanzas School community.

The students have done an outstanding job adjusting back to school and getting to know new teachers and classmates. Students and teachers are already focusing the rigors of academics, in addition to reviewing routines and procedures to ensure that everyone is safe and successful on campus.


  • Gates at Matanzas will be unlocked 15 minutes before dismissal each day, however, visitors are always welcome at Matanzas! During school hours please enter campus and check in at the front office entrance on Yulupa.

  • Lost and found items are located on the hooks outside of the multi-purpose room. All lost and found items are donated on the first of each month.

  • It’s HOT! During recess and lunch we have been encouraging students to find shade, and have been opening rooms for students can have the option of being indoors. You can help by encouraging your student to wear weather-appropriate clothing, supplying them with a water bottle, and applying sunscreen before they leave in the morning.

Please mark your calendar for Back to School Night on Tuesday, August 27 at 6:00. We will begin all together in the gym, with classroom visits to follow. 


Warm wishes for a great school year!


Kate Westrich

Matanzas Principal
