Principal's Message: Week of August 24th

I am extremely proud of everyone for making the opening of school this year a great experience.  I would especially like to recognize our counseling team made up of Assistant Principal Fleischman, Ms. Neuman, Ms. Rios, and Ms. Campos who have done an incredible job with scheduling.  Their time and effort over the last few weeks has been priceless.  At this point we are putting some finishing touches on student schedules and balancing classes, but the heavy lifting is done.

All students are expected to have ID’s at all times on campus.  We will be working to ensure every student has an ID this week.  Students can acquire ID’s during lunch, during free periods and after school from the attendance office.  Five dollar replacement ID’s will be made for students that need an additional ID printed throughout the year.

The much anticipated Gaucho football season gets underway this Saturday, August 30th as we host the Sutter Huskies at the DeAnza High School football field which will be our home field this season.  Kickoff is at 7 pm.

Please help keep our school and community looking beautiful by not leaving trash laying around on campus or when you are walking through the community.  We are extremely fortunate to have such a beautiful facility, but it takes all of us working together to ensure it stays that way.

Finally, please don’t forget that Monday, September 1st is Labor Day so there will not be any school on September 1st.

Please note that the staff parking lot off of Eureka is no longer accessible as a drop off and pick up area for students.  Only staff vehicles are permitted in the Eureka parking lot.  We appreciate your support with this adjustment.  We also appreciate the opportunity to work with you and your students and look forward to your student’s growth and development over the course of this year.
