Welcome to the 2021-2022 School Year! We are so happy to have welcomed back almost 5,600 students beginning on August 9, 2021. After having joined Alta Loma School District just six months ago, I’m thrilled to be starting this year’s journey with you.
The Alta Loma School District will welcome two new district administrators following the retirement of a pair of longtime executives. Eric Hart, who has served as the ALSD director of fiscal services since March 2018, has been promoted to associate superintendent for administrative services and chief business official, replacing Steve Thomas, who retired after working 34 years in the school district.
Three Alta Loma elementary schools will have new leadership for the 2021-2022 school year. The Alta Loma School District Board of Trustees at its June 9 meeting approved Guadalupe Berzunza as principal at Floyd M. Stork Elementary School, Khaleelah Lewis-Wilkins as principal at Banyan Elementary School and Andrew Carter as principal at Deer Canyon Elementary School. All three appointments are effective July 1.
We hope you had a safe and pleasant holiday break, as we know many families made alternative holiday plans this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Located in the foothill community of Rancho Cucamonga, California, the Alta Loma School District serves over 6,000 achieving students with 300 teachers and administrative staff and an additional 450+ support staff.
The District prides itself on its educational program, which provides each student with the opportunity for maximum intellectual, social, and physical development. Strong parent and community involvement in the schools' academic excellence of our students, professional development of staff, and the stability of leadership all provide the foundation of success for Inspiring Learners for a Lifetime!
