Hello Santanas,

We're excited to announce our 2023-2024 No Fuss Fundraiser! We only host one fundraiser a year, and this is a great opportunity for our school community to come together and support our students. Please view our flyer for more details on how to contribute to this event.

Culinary Arts: Our culinary team is hosting a fun family cooking night for those who signed up. This delicious event is on September 21st starting at 5:30 pm in room 403, the Culinary Lab.

Pick up/Drop off: A big thank you to parents for following our pick up/drop off guidelines. When entering our campus, please make sure your car is on the far right of the street and not blocking the middle lane (if you drop off your child at the front of the school) as we reserve the middle lane for buses and staff to access the school without waiting in the parent drop off line. Please keep in mind you can avoid the drop off line all together by dropping your child off on Rancho Santiago Blvd.

Tardiness: Please try to ensure that your child is getting to school on time. Our campus opens at 7:15am, so students are welcome to grab breakfast and hang out in the amphitheater. If your child is late, please send them to school with a note. Any unexcused tardies will result in a detention.

Student IDs: Just a reminder that students should be wearing their IDs while on campus, as it helps us ensure our students’ safety. If you're unsure about our ID policy or would like more details, please refer to our Friday newsletter under Student Expectations. 

Attendance: Now that we are entering our cold/flu season, we understand that students will be absent due to an illness. Please make sure and call our attendance line to report an absence. You can call our attendance number 24/7 at 714-628-5681.

As always, thank you for your support! Have a great weekend, and we will see everyone on Monday!
