Deputy Superintendent's Message
Greetings BOUSD Families:
It is amazing how quickly the 2021-22 school year has gone by as we recently celebrated the 100th day of school! I would like to take this moment to express how honored I am to have the opportunity to lead such an amazing faculty and staff through the remainder of the school year. My goal is to provide stability in leadership within the Brea Olinda Unified School District through this time of transition, while working alongside our Board, Cabinet and administrators in support of its Mission, Vision, and Values.
BOUSD has been committed, from day one, to stay true to our students and families during these unprecedented times. There have been many obstacles to overcome, but the District Staff has gone above and beyond on many levels to make sure our students are having their educational, social and emotional needs met. This school year has been no different, as we tackled the wave of Omicron by expanding COVID-19 testing sites and obtaining at-home testing kits for our families to help ensure a safe return to school following winter break.
Now that the surge is on the decline, and with our safety measures in place, our schools are returning to a sense of normalcy that brings with it extracurricular activities, athletics and in-person community events. Some upcoming events our students and staff are looking forward to include field trips, open houses, Brea Best Meet, elementary play, prom, band and choir performances and graduation.
On behalf of the BOUSD Staff, thank you for entrusting us with your child(ren). We appreciate the community’s support and are truly grateful for your partnership and deep commitment to achieving excellence throughout our district.
Brinda C. Leon
Chief Human Resources Officer
