Dear Taft Families,

This is Principal Garcia-Rubio calling with our Thursday update.


On behalf of the Taft Staff, you are cordially invited to our virtual Open House.  We invite you to log into your students’ Google Classrooms at 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 24, 2020.  There you will find links to Zoom, video or slides where you can meet our teachers online.  At 6:00 p.m., we will have a Zoom webinar on Title I, our academic goals for this year and Parent-School compact.  This webinar will be recorded so that you can view it a convenient time.  The Zoom link will follow the day before Open House 2020 


Parent volunteers are needed to serve on our School Site Council and School Governance Team. Both of these committees give advice on how to best use our resources to support student learning.  It is a time commitment of approximately 1 hour a month. Please email Principal Garcia-Rubio at [email protected]  if you are interested in being on the parent ballot. The election will take place on Thursday, September 24, 2020 and our first meeting will be in October.


With this email is our San Diego Unified Facts for Parents and a Universal Form.  The Facts for Parents includes information about San Diego Unified District policies. The Universal Form needs to be returned to the school via email as parent or guardian consent is required for media release as well as internet access.  SDUSD Facts for Parents Facts for Parents (Espanol) Universal Form-Please return to Taft.
