Home of the Mighty Mustangs

Dedicated Teachers!
Way to go Mrs. Goossen, Mrs. Chapman and Mrs. Bertrand.  They are working hard this summer at Cal Poly to bring Science and Engineering to SMES!

To ensure a safe and orderly campus throughout the school year, we need your cooperation in supporting our school and celebrating the great things we are doing at Santa Margarita Elementary. In the past few months we have had an increase in the amount of vandalism and graffiti on our campus. The defacing and destroying of property can be costly to our school and district and may cause people to think our school is not well-cared for. Because our community and families do care about our school and what happens here, we are asking that you if you see or know of any vandalism occurring on our campus, that you please call the San Luis Obispo Sheriff’s Office at 781-4550 or We-Tip at 1800-78-CRIME. We appreciate your help and support in keeping our campus safe.


 Atascadero Unified School District is focusing on improving attendance through communication and collaboration with Atascadero Families. 
Please find the attached letter, kicking off Attendance Awareness Month!
