• Dear Brookside Families and Staff,


    It is with great pride and excitement that I join Brookside Elementary as your new Principal.  I look forward to partnering with you to ensure all children are celebrated and supported.  Together, we will ensure that we maintain our tradition of excellence and community that makes Brookside such a special place.


    This marks my 24th year in education. As an educator, I am driven by the individual success and growth of every student. I have devoted my career to educating, inspiring, and advocating for students, both as a classroom teacher and as an administrator. I am excited to bring my passion, enthusiasm and experience to cultivate the unique educational programs that Brookside has to offer. Above all, I am excited to observe, listen, learn, and understand what makes Brookside thrive.  


    At the heart of my practice is building strong relationships with the staff, students, and families I serve. I look forward to listening to your ideas and vision for our school and collaborating with each of you to support our sense of community here at Brookside Elementary. As your principal, I will strive to ensure that all families feel welcome and connected to our school family. Please be on the lookout for upcoming Principal Chats and family events, but also know that I would love to hear from you at any time. 


    I know many of our students and families are eagerly anticipating the full reopening of our campus as we are too at Brookside. Annual registration forms will be posted on our website on July 26th. Please look for a communication from me on or before July 26th with more details.


    Please feel free to contact me by email at ddiamond@opusd.org or by calling our school office at 818-597-4200. I welcome any questions or ideas you would like to share.


    I look forward to meeting our Tigers in person!

    With Tiger Pride,

    Diane Diamond
