The school and the community are a special place and I am honored to be part of it.  We are a neighborhood school and welcome families from all walks of life.  I am not only a proud Principal, I am a community member as well as a parent of the school.  I look forward to our time together and cannot wait to learn alongside everyone.  If you ever have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me.

Lakeside Farms Fallout Shelter

One of the few nuclear fallout shelters in San Diego County is now better equipped to teach about the Cuban Missile Crisis than to survive a future missile crisis. The US Army Corps of Engineers constructed a fallout shelter underneath the Lakeside Farms Elementary School in Lakeside back in 1961.
