Happy Retirement
Mr. Perruccio worked in LBUSD for 39 years as a teacher, coordinator, and a counselor.  His office display case of hundreds of PEZ candy dispensers was a unique counseling tool that he used to bond with students and calm them when they were upset. Enjoy your retirement, Mr. Peruccio. We hope that you enjoy all the travels you have planned for your retirement "career." Thank you for your hard work and dedication to LBUSD and its students!
