    Letter to Parents

    Dear Parent/Guardians,

    Welcome to San Ysidro Middle School home of the mighty Vikings. It is my distinct honor and privilege to be the Principal at San Ysidro Middle School.  Our team of educators and staff are dedicated to providing a learning environment that is equitable, is enriching, and prepares our students for the 21st century.  Our staff works collaboratively in order to ensure that we are providing the best possible academic program; one that provides rigor and critical thinking.

    You, as the parent, are our biggest supporter, and we strive to create an atmosphere where parents and staff work together to ensure the continued growth of our students in the areas of academic and social awareness.  Please take an active part in helping us promote an atmosphere that supports academic, social and work habits that are beneficial to our students’ success.  You can start by ensuring that your child arrives at school on time, attends regularly, has a quiet place to do homework, and reads at home. 

    In addition, there are several opportunities for you to get involved on campus and support your child’s education.  You can join our School Site Council and/or English Language Advisory Committee.  You can participate in parent workshops throughout the school year or join us for our monthly “Coffee with the Principal” meetings.

    I strongly encourage you to build a positive relationship with your son’s/daughter’s teachers.  They are the best resource for you.  I look forward to working with you as we prepare our students for continued success. 



    Maria C. Rodriguez

    Proud Principal of San Ysidro Middle School
