Dear Families and Community Members,

I am very excited for the opportunity to return to Rice Elementary School, and am proud and honored to serve as your new Principal.  I look forward to seeing students, staff, and families again, and know that we will have a great 2023-24 school year together.  Please be on the lookout for an invitation to a Coffee with the Principal the second week of school

The first day of school is Wednesday, July 19.  A detailed letter will be sent by email with your child's classroom teacher and first day of school procedures. Class lists will also be posted on the front door the day on July 18. Our TK and Kindergarten students will have early dismissal from July 19 - 28. They will attend school from 7:45 - 11:00 am. 

We are always striving to improve the communication between school and home and we hope our new website will deliver! We  use Class Dojo to communicate with families about the great things that are happening at our school. You can opt in to receive text messages from the district and school by texting YES to 67587. Please let us know how we can make improvements to better serve you with any of these communication tools.

Thank you for the opportunity to help shape the educational life of your child at our school! 


Veronica Delgado
