Meet the Principal


Hello Castori Friends and Families!

It is hard to believe it is already November!  The year seems to be flying by.  We continue to work with our Panthers and Panther families remotely.  Our office is open for phone calls daily from 7:45 to 3:30.  Should you need to come to the office, please call to arrange a time first.  Our goal is to provide support and follow all social distancing guidelines as well.  Masks are required when you come onto campus.
If you haven't downloaded the Parent Square app  yet, please do so.  It is an easy way to communicate with teachers as well as the front office.  We do send out messages through Aeries both via text and email posts.  Look for communications coming from your Panther's teacher through Aeries as well.
All support for laptops will continue to take place at the district level.  Grant High School remains the nearby location for families to take laptops needing any service or repairs.  Please use this number if you need IT assistance for a district laptop:  (916) 566-7802 .  
Curriculum and materials for the second trimester are being distributed from Castori.  Please be sure to come to the school between 11:30 and 1:00 to get the items and pick up a lunch as well.
It is vitally important that all of our Panthers take part in daily distance learning.  The material taught will be new for the students and is essential to their education.  Should you have questions about distance learning, please feel free to contact me at (916)566-3420 or at
As we are following social distancing guidelines, our Coffee and Conversations, ELAC meetings, School Site Council, PTA, and various other events will take place online through zoom.  In addition, we will focus on recognizing the achievements of our students and staff at zoom assemblies as we move through the year.  Look for information on these events on teacher websites, the school website, and calls made home.  Our goal is to provide a rich and connected school environment for students and families.
Thank you for your ongoing support for our Panthers.  I value you, your commitment to your child's education, and your involvement.  Together we will persevere through this.
