Principal’s Report:


  • Expulsion
    • The Discipline Committee moved to expel student NO for one year from the date of notice (November 28, 2022).  NO can return to Presidio after one year if he has met the required criteria and remained discipline free during his expulsion period.  NO’s family was provided with appeal information and did not move forward in the appeal process.
  • Employee Update
    • 4 new monitors have been hired – 2 full time and 2 part time – to cover recesses, lunches, and morning/after school services.  Currently Presidio is fully staffed.
  • Presidio Giving Tree
    • Presidio has 11 families that reached out to Erin Foudy  to request holiday assistance.  Their requests have been placed both on the virtual Giving Tree and physical giving tree for Presidio community members and staff to take.  All donations are due on/before Friday, December 9, 2022.
  • PTSO Holiday Bazaar
    • The PTSO is holding a Holiday Bazaar on Wednesday, December 14, 2022 from 4-7PM for students and community members to purchase donated items at a low cost.  The PTSO plans to have hot cocoa and cookies available.  Any donated items not sold will be donated to the HS CCCR class for the Buffalo Exchange event scheduled in January 2023.


  • Facilities Update
    • 300 Building restoration and windows
      • Rene Lopez received 3 bids for the restoration, with only one bid deemed substantially complete and 3 bids for the windows.  Rene Lopez will provide Terry Garza and Jessica Montierth with an evaluation rubric and his recommendations by December 12 so they can make a decision about the restoration.  Jessica Montierth will present the rubric and recommendation for the window replacement to the Board during the January 2023 meeting.
