Front Office

Say hello to our front office staff! These staff members work hard to make sure all of our documents, data, attendance, health concerns, and much more are documented and processed. Learn a little more about the friendly faces that greet you when you walk in to the front office.

School Office Supervisor: Kassy Zaragoza

Welcome! This is my first year with La Mesa School and I am so proud to be a Shark! I am a Monterey Bay native and recently moved back into the area after spending a couple of years traveling and living in other states. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling with my husband and coaching cheerleading. While working at PHS in Rhode Island, I discovered my passion for the school office environment. I am looking forward to making La Mesa my new "home".
M-F 7:30 am - 3:30 pm

Attendance Clerk: Debbie Sommatino

When Debbie enrolled her son into Kindergarten in 1978, she thought it would be fun to work at a school.  She applied and is still here 45 years later. She loves everything that she does for La Mesa! She is the first face you see when you enter the front office and is always ready to answer phone calls. If you need to get in touch with the front office, you will probably be greeted by Ms. Debbie.

School Nurse: Fatima Mejia

My name is Fatima Mejia but everyone calls me Nurse Fatima. I have been working as a Licensed Vocational Nurse for the Monterey Peninsula Unified School District for 5 years now. The best part of my job is being here, helping and supporting our students, staff, and parents. The highlight of my day is making our kids feel better when they are not feeling well or when they get hurt. I have been known to give “Magic Ice Packs” which really helps make kids feel a lot better. I have two children who just recently started attending La Mesa Elementary School and everyone here has welcomed us with open arms. I also have ties with the military. My brother served in the United States Marine Corps for 10 years so I have a good connection with and a great sense of patriotism for our military community. I am happy and proud to be a part of this community. GO SHARKS!!!
