Principal's Message

Hello,  my name is Aran Ruiz and I am the principal for the downriver schools.  I have the privilege of working with a dedicated group of staff, teachers, parents, and community members who are enthusiastic about planning and meeting the needs of our students. We have a long tradition of academic excellence. Our goal is for the students and their families to feel at home at Weitchpec Yurok Magnet/Elementary School. We are pleased to have you as partners in education. We invite your participation in the exciting experiences and challenges of your child’s growth and learning.
