Welcoming Students to the 2023/24 School Year

A Message from Superintendent Dr. Lamont Jackson Welcoming Students to the 2023/24 School Year on Aug. 22
Posted on 08/21/2023

Dear San Diego Unified Families,

It is with gratitude and excitement that I welcome our students to the first day of school on Tuesday, August 22.

I would like to thank everyone for their understanding during the uncertain weather conditions brought on by Hurricane Hilary that delayed the start of the 2023-24 school year by one day.

Our team has been busy evaluating our facilities since the storm arrived in San Diego County. Preliminary reports indicate minimal damage, and we are making any repairs that may be necessary. We look forward to opening schools to welcome all students on Tuesday, August 22.

This new school year promises to be one of growth and accomplishment. San Diego Unified remains committed to the values of equity and belonging, to create conditions for all students to thrive.

I want to thank our students, parents, educators, and staff for bearing with us through this unexpected delay. We look forward with excitement for the start of the 2023-24 school year.

In the spirit of Ubuntu, I am because we are.

With much love,
Dr. Lamont A. Jackson
Superintendent of Public Education
