Principal's Message

Principal - Mrs. Jessi Lubs

Dear Tulita Families,


It is with great excitement that I join the outstanding team at Tulita to serve as your interim principal through the end of the school year.  I had the opportunity to welcome some of our youngest students back to campus last week and it was wonderful meeting several of you!  I am thrilled to partner with the Tulita families and staff during a time when ideas about collaborating creatively to best support students not only academically, but socially and emotionally, are critical, and I look forward to getting to know each of you as we work together to serve Tulita students.

While I come to you most recently from Educational Services in RBUSD, I have served children and their families for over 20 years in my various positions as an educator, which includes an English teacher, Program Coordinator, Teacher on Special Assignment (TOSA) in El Segundo Unified School District, and as an administrator in Manhattan Beach Unified School District.  Most recently I served at Loyola Marymount University, where I worked with K-12 student teachers as a Fieldwork Instructor.  Originally from Orange County, I live in the South Bay with my husband and our three children, ages 20,18, and 14.

As Dr. Bruna slowly transitions to her new position as the principal of Adams Middle School, I will work closely with her to ensure a smooth transition to in-person learning and sustain continuity with distance learning. Please know that as we work together through this unusual time, maintaining your children’s safety, health, and overall well-being are paramount.  I will be certain to provide consistent communication and invite you to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas you may have… or feel free to reach out and simply say hello!  I am available, welcome input, and am here to support all stakeholders and the well-established culture at Tulita.
