Greetings MLKTA Families,
On behalf of the Martin Luther King Jr. Technology Academy Administration, Faculty and Staff, we are incredibly excited to welcome you to the 2022-2023 school year. We are looking forward to working collaboratively with you to ensure that both our 7th Grade Scholars and 8th Grade Leaders are appropriately welcomed and feel connected as part of our MLKTA family. Our highly qualified team of teachers and support staff are committed to providing our students with exceptional opportunities/experiences both inside and outside the classroom to ensure that all of our students receive an enriching and rewarding experience here at MLKTA. Not to mention, we all take pride in ensuring that we serve as a support and resource to our stellar families.
Our first day of school is on Thursday, Aug. 18, 2022. Classes will start promptly at 8 a.m. and dismissal is at 2:37 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Every Wednesday, we are on an Early Out schedule for Staff Professional Learning Time (PLT). On Wednesdays, the school day begins at the same time of 8 a.m. but school dismissal is at 12:37 p.m.
Student Attendance is extremely important. Our instructional staff starts instructional and learning activities immediately, so please make every effort to ensure that your child arrives on time with their Chromebooks daily and prepared to learn.
Also, to stay abreast of all activities and events that is taking place at MLKTA please be sure to have an updated cell phone number and email address in order receive information via our ParentSquare messaging system. You could also visit our school website at http://mlkta.twinriversusd.org or follow our social media platforms. I welcome and embrace any input, feedback or suggestions as we work in concert on behalf of our children. Some great ways to do this is serving on our School Site Council (SSC) and/or our English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC). Information on these governing bodies will be available at Student Orientation as well.
Again, we are excited and looking forward to serving our students and families this upcoming school year. As always, if you have any questions or in need of additional information or support, please contact our Main Office at 916-566-3490.
