Dr. Chang’s Maternity Leave

Families, this is my last week at Encinita before I take my maternity leave starting on February 1st. Mrs. Ginny Ford, retired Assistant Principal from Muscatel Middle School and former school psychologist, will be serving as interim principal until the end of May. I know that with the leadership of our community, our staff and our students, Encinita will continue to thrive in my absence. 

I look forward to seeing you on campus. Have a productive week.
