New Principal Headed to Bret Harte

We are grateful to Mr. Tucker for five years of service to our school community, and wish him the very best in the next phase of his journey!  

We are also looking ahead at what is next for Bret Harte, and want YOUR input!  There are three ways that you may choose to participate, all detailed here.  You may join us for a Zoom meeting with Instructional Assistant Superintendent Aprille Shafto on December 1 at 6pm.  You may complete this survey and share the qualities you are looking for in a new principal.  And you may also request to serve on the interview hiring panel.  We look forward to your participation!

Here to Serve and Support You!

Our Student Support Center has been open to serve Bret Harte families for over 20 years!  Ms. Liz has been here for ten of those years, and is committed to providing individual support to any student or family in need.  You may check out our Virtual Support Center to search for resources on your own, or learn more about us, and you may also reach out directly via email, phone or text: (916) 826-3050.  We hope to hear from you soon!
