Principal’s Message

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! Although this school year promises to be one like no other, please know that we are still committed to providing our students with the highest quality education. We are dedicated to quality instruction through My School Online (MSO) and the K12 platform. Our fall may not be “normal,” but our learning will not only continue, it will thrive.

This school year will require a lot of patience, flexibility and communication. But, I know that….

Together, We Will Reach Galaxies Far, Far Away!

Thank you to all of you for your pledge and commitment to Dr. Manuel C. Barreiro Elementary School and to the success of all our students during these unprecedented times. I eagerly look forward to greeting students and families again, even if it is virtually! It remains an honor and privilege to serve as your principal.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns throughout the school year, please feel free to email me at or call me at 305-229-4800.


Maritza Correa, Principal
