Dear Inglewood Unified School District (IUSD) Staff, Students, Families and Community:
In our continued commitment to serving our community and providing current information, we have some important updates in this week’s message. Please be advised that our newsletter will be distributed twice a month during the summer break. Our regular, weekly distribution will resume in August 2021.
Congratulations IUSD Students
The Inglewood Unified School District Board of Education, administration, leadership, and staff would like to congratulate the Class of 2021 on concluding the 2020-2021 academic year with a fierce sense of determination, perseverance, and strength. All of your hard work and dedication has led you to this culmination and we are exceptionally proud of those who have accomplished this historic milestone. To our students who have been promoted to either middle school or high school, we know that you will continue to do great things as you move forward into the next stage of your educational journey. We look forward to celebrating even more of your achievements when you return for the new school year. In addition, we also want to recognize our high school seniors, who I know will continue to work hard, even beyond high school and toward future endeavors. Congratulations IUSD Students.
