Dear Tennyson High School Community,


The Hayward Unified School District is pleased to announce the appointment of Mrs. Veronica Estrada as the new principal for Tennyson High School. Principal George Mitsopoulos has decided to transition to a new position within the district, and both he and Mrs. Estrada will collaborate to ensure a smooth transition for our students, staff, and parents. We thank him for all of his passion, energy, and hard work in leading Tennyson these past two years.  


Mrs. Estrada is a “Made in Hayward” leader who attended Winton Middle School and Mt. Eden High School. After graduating from UC Santa Cruz, she returned to Hayward and earned a master’s degree in educational leadership from Cal State East Bay. She taught math at Mt. Eden High School and served as a counselor at Winton and Bret Harte middle schools. Since 2015, Mrs. Estrada served as the assistant principal at Tennyson High School and as the lead administrator for the World House program at both Chavez Middle School and Tennyson High School.


Mrs. Estrada has been focused on equity and access to opportunities for all students and is well known for her positive energy, attention to detail, organization, and for planning instructional programs and interventions. In particular, she has been successful in building and supporting strong teams.


Mrs. Estrada enjoys spending time with her family and watching her daughter dance ballet folklorico and play softball. She will be an exceptional principal for Tennyson High School and an asset to the South Hayward community.


The district extends its appreciation to the Tennyson staff who participated in our secondary principal  interview committee. While no viable candidate surfaced from that process, the committee did successfully articulate their values and expectations for effective school leadership. We are confident in Mrs. Estrada’s capacity to build community and bring forward the values that are important to Tennyson. Please join us in welcoming Mrs. Estrada.




Dr.  Matt Wayne, Superintendent

Dr.  Peter Parenti, Assistant Superintendent of Ed. Services              Dr. Lisa Davies, Academic Director, Secondary


Please see the message below regarding the updated Bell Box/PA Project Timeline at Tennyson High School. A PDF is also attached.



Dear Tennyson Community, [este mensaje se repite en español]


I am happy to report that last night, the Hayward Board of Trustees approved the contract that will allow work to begin on our PA system.


Replacing a PA/Bell Box system is an extensive project, so we are pleased that work on the project will begin promptly. The fire alarm and public announcement system are tied together at Tennyson High School (THS) and rely on wiring that runs throughout the school.


The following are the next steps in the replacement process. Please note that these are estimated timelines, but the district will work with the contractor to ensure that we maintain the fastest timeline.


  • Notice to proceed on the work:  4/3/18 (approximate date

  • Begin exterior construction phase:  4/4/18

  • Begin interior construction phase:  6/15/18

  • Complete construction: 8/10/18


I am committed to the safety of our school community and I look forward to working with you through this transition period. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.




George Mitsopoulos



Estimada Comunidad de Tennyson,


Me da gusto informarles que anoche la mesa directiva de Hayward aprobó el contrato que nos permitirá comenzar a reemplazar el sistema de campana y megafonía.


Reemplazar un sistema de campana / megafonía en realidad es un proyecto extenso, y nos da gusto que el trabajo comenzará pronto. Los dos sistemas están vinculados con el sistema de alarma contra incendios en Tennyson y dependen del mismo cableado que funciona en toda la escuela.


A continuación se encuentran los próximos pasos en el proceso de reparación. Tenga en cuenta que estos son plazos estimados pero el distrito trabajara con el contratista para asegurar que se complete el proyecto lo más pronto posible.  


  • Aviso para proceder con el trabajo: 4/3/18 (fecha aproximada)

  • Comienza la fase de construcción exterior: 4/4/18

  • Comienza la fase de construcción interior: 6/15118

  • Construcción completa: 8/10/18


Mi prioridad es la seguridad de nuestros estudiantes y el personal de la escuela. Espero poder trabajar junto con ustedes durante este tiempo de transición. No dude en contactarme con cualquier pregunta.




George Mitsopoulos
