Parent Newsletter 2022-02-18

Good evening El Puente families,


It has been a little bit since we’ve sent out our last newsletter (our apologies).  Please read in full as it has a lot of important information.  If you have any questions or suggestions, please do not hesitate to reach out.


ELPAC Testing

  • English learners will be tested in their ELD classes during March for English proficiency.  This exam is important for our English learners in that it helps let us know more about their progress in acquiring English and whether or not they need additional services.
  • Please make sure your students participate fully in testing and be aware that during the speaking test the state requires their cameras be turned on.



  • There will be no school March 28-April 1.  Enjoy your break!



  • For those wondering more about El Puente in the 2022-23 school year, the school district is still developing plans for what programs we will offer.  We will communicate with parents as soon as we have more information.



  • We want to hear from you!  The City of Salinas has developed draft recommendations to improve safety for students and families traveling to school.  Please click on the map to review each of the draft recommendations for your student's school.  After you review the map, please click on the following link to take a short survey.  Your responses will be used to identify anything that is missing from the current recommendations.  Thank you for your participation!

  • Safety Survey:


  • Please join us for our next ELAC and Parent Meeting on Wednesday, February 23, 2022 @ 6:00 PM.  It is a great way to get involved and have your voice heard.



  • Our school will be visited in March by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges to examine our school’s operations and renew our accreditation.  Part of this process involves talking to parents about the school.  If you would like to participate, please contact Mr.Green at
