NELSON VIRTUAL TOUR INFORMATION
Welcome to W. R. Nelson Elementary School!
With just over 500 students, Nelson teachers and staff develop strong relationships with students and families. We are a TK through fifth grade school! Through rigorous standards, engaging strategies and the support of technology, we will encourage students to be independent thinkers and lifelong learners. In a safe, caring, and nurturing environment. Nelson students will develop responsibility for learning, as well as pride in self and school.
Nelson Elementary School houses two Special Day Classes providing high quality instruction for our most at-risk learners. Mainstreaming opportunities allow students to work together which develops students who are caring, inclusive, and compassionate of others.
For the 2020-21 school year, COVID-19 has shifted our instructional program to a hybrid/virtual am/pm model to allow for social distancing through smaller class size. Along with this shift, curriculum has also shifted slightly to allow for both synchronous and asynchronous teaching and learning times. While no decision has been made about the 2021-22 school year, it is the hope of the Tustin Unified School District to resume traditional, in-person school.
Ms. Shannon James-Olsen, Principal of Nelson
