Principal's Message:


Enrollment in SDUSD summer learning experiences will now be handled through the District. Please visit the “Level Up” website for information about the program,  sign up for updates, and how to enroll.


We are thrilled that San Diego Unified is planning for a return to full-day, in-person learning, five days a week, for the 2021-22 school year. (*Please note that students will also have the option of remaining online, and SDUSD is in the process of planning that program.  We will share additional details once we have them.)

In order to help us plan for the number of classes needed at each grade level, please complete this survey for EACH of your TK through 4th grade children who are currently enrolled at Holmes.  If you have more than one child at Holmes, you will need to complete a survey for each student.  Also, the survey is not required for outgoing 5th grade students.

Take the survey here: 2021-22 Holmes Student Survey 


San Diego Unified has partnered with UC San Diego to provide FREE COVID-19 testing at every school campus for all of our students. Testing is an important part of our district’s plan to protect our community from the spread of coronavirus. 

Our school’s scheduled testing day is every other Tuesday between 8:30am - 10:00am until the last day of school, June 15th.  Our next COVID-19 testing day is Tuesday, May 25, 2021.

Please complete the Holmes Parent Survey to provide us with valuable information about your opinions, perceptions, and feedback related to our school. The information you provide helps to guide district and school efforts to promote safety, enhance learning supports, and improve student achievement.  Please complete the parent survey by May 28, 2021.


Please join me for our Monday Morning Assembly via Zoom at 8:30am.  Each classroom teacher will log into Zoom and project the image for the class on their Promethean Board. For our online learners make sure to join us and use the Zoom link below.
