Hello Santanas,

It looks like it is going to rain on Friday, therefore our Strive pick up for those who missed our original drive through will be rescheduled for another day. Please keep an eye out for when a new date is determined.

Also, for all our future Vanguards, the Virtual El Modena Showcase is Wednesday night starting at 5:30 pm. The link originally sent out appears not to be working, so please utilize the El Modena High School website for an updated link on the day of the event.

Please keep an eye out in your inbox for a survey regarding Santiago’s scheduling for next year. We are gathering input from our parents, students and staff to determine what the best schedule will be to pursue for the 2021-2022 school year.

The weather is awfully unpredictable, and everchanging, but at this point it appears that we will not have rain this week until late Thursday; therefore we are planning to hold classes as usual on Wednesday and Thursday of this week. We will also be resuming normal Santiago uniforms starting tomorrow, Tuesday. That being said, if your student is cold and needs to wear a thicker jacket to school with their uniform, please have them do so. Our top priority is the health and safety of all of our Santanas and their families.

Thanks for a great Monday, and we look forward to a smooth, rain free week.  

Mrs. Pedroza

Hello Santanas, 

As you may know, the state has extended the free nutrition program for the rest of the year to all public school students. We at Santiago Charter Middle School want to remind you that your child, regardless of family income, is welcome to receive a free breakfast and free lunch everyday they are on campus and take a free sack lunch for Friday.

Virtual students can pick up their free weekly nutrition bags every Friday, which include breakfasts, lunches and produce for the week on Friday in front of the school cafeteria between 12:30 pm and 2:00 pm. 

During this pandemic it is critically important that every child has access to nutritious meals and we want to remind you that even though the calendar year has moved to 2021, these meals are available for the entire school year through June of 2021.

Good afternoon Santiago Families,

The Santiago PTSA would like to welcome back our families and students to the new school year. I am sure you did not imagine starting the school year this way. I thought by now the virus would be contained and our lives would be back to normal. We realize that this will be a challenging year for all of us, moving forward into an uncharted territory in education. However, Santiago PTSA wants you to know that we are here to support you in any way possible during this unpredictable year. We are, primarily, an organization that represents the students here at Santiago. To that end, we need the Santiago community, parents, teachers, and staff, to join the PTSA so that we can continue to provide financial support for various needs here at Santiago. PTSA membership dues is the primary fundraising method for us. Over the years, we have been able to meet various needs for teachers, and students. We would love to continue to provide the extra help and funds throughout this year. This pandemic is making it difficult to continue with our usual efforts, but we are reaching out in any way we can. 

If you have not joined yet it is $15.00 for the parent and $10.00 for students or you can join through our link any questions or concerns please email me at

Thank you,

Tricia Hill
