A Message from the Superintendent RE: Broadmoor Preschool Program
December 11, 2019
Dear Broadmoor Community,
Thank you so much for coming out last evening to share your beautiful, inspiring experiences at the San Leandro Unified school board meeting. I know that Broadmoor is a very special place for young children and families, with a rich tradition in San Leandro. It has always been my goal to ensure that Broadmoor programming continues in SLUSD.
Moving forward, SLUSD is firmly committed to keeping the program intact at the current location. I will be personally involved with the board of directors and staff in determining what support is needed to make that a reality. We will meet after winter break to discuss the necessary details to guarantee continuity for Broadmoor.
Today, I had the pleasure of meeting with the staff regarding the future of the program. There is work for us to do together and I trust that the longstanding partnership between SLUSD and Broadmoor will enable us to ensure another 80 years of excellence in early childhood education.
Please contact me directly with any questions. I can be reached at (510) 895-4199 or via email at email@example.com. I look forward to collaborating with you soon.
Dr. Michael McLaughlin
