Message from the Principal

Dear Community Members,

This is certainly a new world for all of us! I hope you and your families are staying safe and healthy. Thoughts to the many thousands who are ill, and to those on the front lines caring for them. By now, our spring quarter would have been well underway. Though many classes are now cancelled, some teachers are continuing with online instruction. Please keep checking this website for updates. We look forward to returning with a full schedule of exciting adult school classes. Meanwhile, please stay safe — and take care of each other!

Dave Hoshiwara, Principal
