Principal's Message


Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year Deerfield Falcons!

I am greatly honored to serve as the new principal of Deerfield and excited to join the Deerfield School community. I look forward to meeting all of you soon.

While the 2020-2021 school year will look a little different, please know that Deerfield is committed to providing an exceptional educational experience in all academic models. This year we will offer three academic models for students: IVA (Irvine Virtual Academy), traditional and hybrid. In all academic models, students will receive instruction and educational opportunities focused on academic and social-emotional growth. Regardless of the circumstances, the Deerfield team will continue to rise to the occasion by building and refining innovative practices that will engage our students in meaningful and robust learning opportunities.

Now more than ever, our partnership is essential to ensuring the very best for our students. We will navigate through these challenging times by building a partnership with home, school and our community.  Our Deerfield PTA will continue to provide opportunities for our families to engage with each other throughout the year. We look forward to partnering with you this school year.
