Welcome to Mariposa Elementary School!
Dear Redlands Unified School District Families:
Today, California Governor Gavin Newsom released a statement calling for California school campuses to remain closed for the remainder of this school year with the expectation that students’ education will continue through Distance Learning.
Shortly after conferencing with Superintendents countywide, County Superintendent Ted Alejandre issued a press release supporting the Governor’s recommendation.
“Our public school leaders in San Bernardino County recognize the significant impact the coronavirus is having on our students, staff and families,” said Alejandre. “In the interest of their health and safety, and out of an abundance of caution, I am recommending San Bernardino County school districts extend school site closures through the end of the 2019-20 school year.”
As you are aware, the District is preparing an April 13th official launch of Distance Learning which will continue for the remainder of the school year. During this time, all Redlands Unified School District campuses and facilities will remain closed to the public.
Please be aware, though our campuses and facilities are closed to the public, you may occasionally see essential District employees and/or private contractors present at any given time. Our campuses and facilities will be regularly monitored by District security personnel.
The platform for Instructional Enrichment Resources are available on our website at www.redlandsud.net/rusdtoolkit. Activities include content in English, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies. Resources also include socioemotional learning and Special Education materials. A sample daily schedule is available along with a link to Renaissance Learning’s catalog of 6,000 reading books. Finally, resources for Grab & Go Meals as well as technology resource availability are also on this website.
We are mindful of the questions and concerns regarding our Senior Class of 2020. We are continuing to work with the State Department of Education to provide guidance on graduation requirements and college readiness. As updates become available, we will share additional information.
This transition to Distance Learning is not without challenge. We would like to recognize the contributions and willingness of our parents and caregivers to partner with us in this journey.
Founded in 1965, Mariposa Elementary strives to provide all students with a strong educational foundation that is rooted in strong academic practices and longtime traditions.

Mariposa Elementary School's staff, with excellent support and involvement of our parents and community, is committed to emphasizing academic and social achievement at the highest levels of excellence and to meeting the unique needs of all students with standards-based academics along with visual and performing-arts oriented programs.
Though it is a rigorous academic environment, there is a profound sense of student happiness on the campus. The children are animated in their play, and engaged in their lessons. Mariposa is an educational environment supported by caring adults and a belief system that supports both the academic growth and the emotional needs of all children. Students are guided by our long tradition of the Five Keys to Success; responsibility, organization, flexible thinking, pride, and contribution. These essential elements of knowledge and character provide a basis for sound educational practices and also serve as character education. The collective result is a responsible and capable student body, preparing for a global society. Branching out, the Visual and Performing Arts (music, art and movement) are integrated into the daily curriculum. The day begins with music from the Composer of the Month over the outdoor speakers. Students perform in weekly Flag Ceremony assemblies, the school chorus, band, and classroom plays. Hands-on experience and discovery can be seen in our gardens. We work on physical strength through our twice weekly Running Club. Mariposa is a safe nurturing environment where all students can find variety of opportunities for learning, building confidence, and developing responsibility.

Dear Mariposa Elementary School Families,
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year at Mariposa Elementary School. I am excited and honored to continue to be a part of the Mariposa community. I look forward to working hard this year to continue to build strong relationships with new and existing students and families. If you ever have a concern about something or a question regarding a specific situation or procedure, please do not hesitate to contact me.
This is an extremely busy school with many events for students to enhance their educational experience so I hope you will join us in participating in or volunteering for any events that you are able to throughout the year. Our PTA will welcome any help with events or activities. Any amount of time given, whether big or small will help our school community and PTA, and it will be special for your child as well.
Mariposa is a school with a great deal to be proud of. I am excited for all the events throughout the school year that will help all students make a community connection and enhance the work they are doing within the classroom. I look forward to continuing the support all our students through a strong home, school and community partnership.
Dustin Hackney, Principal
