Superintendent/Principal's Message

Dear Big Lagoon School Community:
The Board of Trustees has opened the search for the position of Superintendent/Principal for the 2020-2021 school year.
I am honored to have spent four years in service as the leader of this school, working with an excellent team that provides an exemplary education for your children. I have a connection with each one of your children, and they are the joys of my days.
Information about the vacacy can be found here:
In the time of distance learning, I am so proud of the efforts and successes that the staff has achieved.
I am thrilled that you have been able to access the distance-learning resources such as packets, Zoom meetings with teachers, and web-based programs for your children to use at home. This puts us in an excellent position to ensure your child has access to resources as we transition into a distance learning model for the remainder of the school year. I am optimistic that with all of the tools that are available, the absolute dedication of your children's teachers, and your children's investment in their own learning, we will be successful in maintaining quality instruction.
Maintaining a connection to the school community is a priority that we all share as we keep that family feeling that we love about Big Lagoon School.

Do not hesitate to contact me by email or my cell phone with questions, concerns, suggestions, or greetings!
All the best,
Ms. Jen

About Us

Big Lagoon School is a rural public elementary school serving grades serving students in Transitional Kindergarten to Grade 8, situated on a 10-acre site, 26 miles north of Eureka, California. The school is located just off Highway 101, surrounded by a Sitka Spruce forest.
Our students enjoy the benefits of being a five-minute walk from a large freshwater lagoon and miles of sandy beaches and dunes, with a habitat rich in environmental opportunities associated with coastal Pacific lands. The district is surrounded by the Pacific Ocean on the west, Big Lagoon County Park and the Big Lagoon Rancheria to the north, Simpson Lumber Company land to the east, and Patrick's Point State Park to the South.
