A Farewell from Principal Jessie Salas

It is with heartfelt words that I write to inform you that as of June 28, 2019, I will be leaving the position of Principal of Hellyer Elementary School and relocating to San Diego County.

I am honored and feel so fortunate to have been given the opportunity to be part of the Hellyer Elementary community. It has been my good fortune to experience a wonderful partnership with the students, staff and families in our community. Hellyer has been a very special place for me and I will miss everyone.
