Meet New Principal of Discovery High School

Laurelle Mathison Discovery High School
Laurelle Mathison, the new principal of Discovery High School, has a love for music. It’s been a passion since she was a youth living in Trinidad and Tobago where she grew up. Obtaining a music degree made perfect sense, so after moving to the United States, she obtained a Bachelor of Music from the University of the Pacific and later a Master of Music from Boston University. She utilized her experience and schooling to become a music teacher in the Lodi Unified and Lincoln Unified School Districts.

Distance Learning Option Not Planned for Fall

We are so thrilled to have our students back on campus 5 days a week for in-person instruction, and we’re glad that we are able to continue offering the distance learning option to families for the remainder of the 2020-21 school year which ends June 10. Beyond that, there is no indication from the state that distance learning will continue to be allowed in response to the COVID pandemic. All indications at this time show that schools will be back to in-person instruction solely in the fall.

Secondary in-person return is nearing

We are getting one step closer to reopening for secondary grades (6-12). On Friday afternoon, we learned that Sacramento County may be moving into the red tier on Tuesday, March 16, the tier needed to be able to reopen for in-person instruction for middle and high school. If this holds, secondary in-person will start on Monday, March 22. We will know more on Tuesday.
