Letter from The Matador regarding publishing over summer breaks

Dear Community:

The Matador will not be publishing in print or online over summer break in accordance with the new Alhambra Unified School District School Publications code.

As stated in the code, “official school publications” and the communications of “official school clubs and organizations” may be “published only the school year and excludes holidays and breaks (winter, spring, and summer). No official student publication shall be published during holidays and breaks.”

Farewell and The Matador appreciates your loyal readership. Have a good summer and see you Aug. 10!
