Superintendent's Update- April 2022
Posted 5/3/22


Dear Hacienda La Puente Unified Community,


April was a highly successful month for Hacienda La Puente Unified, as our scholars and educators received top honors for their hard work, and found opportunities to work as a team to give back to our community and help the environment.


Each month, we observe historical dates designed to educate our students on important issues and help build robust support systems within our community.


In April, we focused on the importance of mathematics in honor of Math Awareness Month, participated in various community projects to celebrate Earth Day, wore denim in recognition of Sexual Assault Awareness Month and provided resources in observance of National Child Abuse Prevention Month.


We also showed our appreciation to our administrative professionals and bus drivers, surprising them with fun decorations and gifts to show gratitude for their essential contributions.  


As April came to a close, we received the fantastic news that HLPUSD and 28 of our schools were announced winners of the newly created 2022 California Pivotal Practice Award Program. This recognition demonstrates Hacienda La Puente Unified's success in implementing innovative practices when California schools were required to offer distance learning in the 2020-21 school year prompted by COVID-19 pandemic.  


This honor joins our extensive list of recognitions this year, affirming Hacienda La Puente Unified's talent, collaboration, creativity and determination.


Thank you to our Board of Education, teachers, staff, administrators and community members for continually advocating for our students and the success of this District. I look forward to finishing the school year off strong and celebrating the successes of our students with you all throughout the next few weeks! As always, we are #ProudtobeHLPUSD.


Sincerely, Dr. Alfonso Jiménez
