Dear Pine Grove Superstar Families,

My name is Michelle Boyd, and I am humbled and honored to serve the staff, students, and families of our little corner of paradise.

The Orcutt community has been my home since the 1990s. My husband and I proudly sent our two children to schools in the OUSD, and each married fellow OUSD alumni. I have spent 24 of my 26 years in public education as a member of the OUSD team; serving as a teacher, TOSA (teacher on special assignment), Vice Principal, and English Language Development Coordinator.  

During these challenging and uncertain times, students’ access to curriculum, engagement in learning, and connection to school are paramount to a successful school year. One of the most important priorities of my work is to build relationships and trust with students, teachers, and families. I plan to seek creative ways to be able to connect with all of you within the current social distancing criteria. I value your input, so please reach out if you have ideas on how we can come together during this unprecedented time.

The Pine Grove staff are genuine SUPERSTARS.  I am impressed daily by their dedication to our students. It is through partnering with home and school that we will succeed in bringing the best educational opportunities to your child. 

Michelle Boyd
