Principal's Message

Good Morning McGaugh Families,

Happy New Year! I hope you’ve all had a safe, happy, and healthy holiday season. I, along with McGaugh’s teachers and staff members, are so excited to see you all on Monday. The second semester of school always “springs” new energy and new educational opportunities. We are looking forward to reconnecting with our Sea Lion community and reestablishing a safe and nurturing learning environment even in light of the current COVID-19 challenges. 


I’m confident that we’re prepared to successfully navigate these challenges. The professionalism of our faculty and staff and partnership with our parents and community gives me that confidence. We’ve adhered to the district’s COVID-19 protocols, and these protocols have allowed us to have a near-traditional school year. Now is not the time to relax, and we won’t. So let’s remember the following: 

  • Let's continue to proactively reinforce the importance of hand-washing,  wearing face masks, and avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands to limit the spread of coronavirus. 
  • Make sure your child's mask fits. The mask should cover your child's mouth and nose and fit closely against the sides of your child's face without gaps. Please replace masks that don't fit.
  • If your child is experiencing cold, flu, or COVID-19 related symptoms, click here for the instructions to follow to allow your child to return to school safely.
