Welcome to Flora Arca Mata Elementary School!
2020 is going to memorable for so many reasons. A global pandemic created by COVID-19; a spring full of protest putting the spotlight on the racial inequities in our society; and the opening of Flora Arca Mata Elementary School.
I must apologize for not communicating with you earlier. I know that you are aware that situations have been changing daily, in some instances hourly, and so I waited to give you the most accurate information available.
So here it is- We will open the 20-21 school year with 100% distance learning. This is not the ideal situation for a brand new school, but it is the safest for your scholar, my faculty & staff, and our community, in light of several factors that the school district has been monitoring.
Call me crazy, but I am excited about this opportunity! This moment in time will demonstrate that the Flora Arca Mata School is special. Special- not because we are going to occupy a brand new building, but because our school is going to overcome adversity, just like our namesake, to deliver a high-quality education to your scholar. We are going to prove that a school is not a building. A school is a group of people coming together to fulfill the mission of preparing Stockton’s youth to be leaders in our global community.
The Stockton Unified School District has assembled a MAGNIFICENT group of educators who are uniquely experienced (whether in person or virtually) to fulfill this mission.
Welcome FAM to the Mustang Nation!.
H. Phillips, Principal
Our full plan for the opening of school will be sent out 7/27/20 Monday evening.
