Welcome Back from Principal Bill Pearson!


August 2022


Dear Standley Families,


Welcome back everyone!  My entire staff is working hard and making every effort to ensure a great opening to our 2022/2023 school year.  The focus of Standley Middle School and San Diego Unified is to develop students who will take an active stance in their own learning and become actively literate contributing members of society, making a positive difference in the world.


Here are few of the many things we are excited about this year:


1. In-person instruction, 5 days per week, full-time, following county and state guidelines regarding masking and such.  Masks are highly recommended but not required at this time and voluntary COVID testing will continue on campus. 


2. Universal Meals for every student will continue this year.  Breakfast and lunch options will be served on campus daily.  Students will use their lunch PIN to access.


3.  Universal Chromebooks for all students.  SDUSD continues to support a 1:1 device model where every student will have a device checked out to them like a textbook.  Students will bring it to school every day, charged, and take it home to continue with their schoolwork. New students to the district and incoming 6th will get a new device for their time in middle school.   


4.  Middle School Athletics are back in SDUSD.  Soccer was a huge success in the spring with 27/36 middle schools participating and over 1,100 students sign up.  Registration for fall sports is open now if your student is interested in basketball or track and field.


If you have questions or concerns, please reach out to our staff, all contacts are on our website, who can work with you.  We are all working hard to implement measures that will keep our students and employees safe and successful at school.


I believe that leadership is a reciprocal process not done by one person to another but rather between people.  My staff and I are energized and deeply committed to making a positive difference in the lives of your children.  We truly look forward to working with you this year to help your child have a positive and productive middle school experience.  Please go to our website https://standley.sandiegounified.org/
