Our Mission Statement
The Cinnabar School family of staff, students, parents, and the community, building on its traditions of excellence, discipline and community involvement, seek to create a safe, stimulating environment which prepares our students to function effectively as lifelong learners and responsible citizens.
The Cinnabar Elementary and Charter School District is a one school district. Cinnabar
School serves 220 students in grades TK-8. The school and district were established in
1859 for the purpose of serving the children who lived mostly on farms just north of
Petaluma. While some of the children today live on ranches, most live in homes that would
be considered suburban. The school serves a relatively diverse student body. In the 2021-
2022 school year we have 15 classroom teachers, which includes a resource and 2
intervention/ELD teacher. There are 9 Instructional aides supporting student learning in the
classroom and supervising students on the playground. We also have the following support
staff: a school psychologist, speech therapist, nurse, school counselor, P.E. instructor,
social emotional instructor, music teacher, and technology director. Cinnabar families are
involved in School Site Council (SSC), PBIS (Positive, Behavior, Intervention, and
Supports) Team and English Language Parent Advisory Committee (ELPAC).
