Message From The Principal

Hi All!


I hope you and your family are safe and doing well!


It turned out to be a crazy week! First SUPER hot, huge local fires, smokey air, and then by Friday--RAIN ALL DAY! Strange days indeed!


A Few Headlines Going Into Next Week


"Credit 1"

This coming Wednesday, September 14, we're at the end of "Credit 1". Your daughter/son has until Wednesday to complete any work to earn credits for this first mini-grading period. We're asking our students to complete their work and turn in any assignments that can help them earn credits! Here at Rancho, we're all about earning credits as quickly as possible so that the goal of graduation is more and more attainable! Students should talk to their teachers and see if they're missing assignments and figure out what needs to be turned in by Wednesday.


Back To School Night

As you'll see below we're having our Back to School Night this coming Thursday, September 15th from 6-7 pm. We really would love to see you and meet you! It's only an hour and we hope to make connections that will be helpful to you and your student throughout the school year! Rancho Vista is a great place--and we hope to show you a little bit about our school and our Staff! Come on by! It's only an hour!


Parent University

These are informational nights that cover a variety of important topics for parents. I know we're all exhausted after a long day, but I can personally vouch that these sessions are worth your time. The first one is about Suicide Awareness & Prevention on September 22 from 6-8 pm; and the second one is about Internet Safety on September 29 also from 6-8 pm. Both are at the District Office. Check out the links below...and even if you only stayed for 30 minutes it would be "time well spent"!



Have a great weekend, and hopefully we'll see you here at RVHS for Back to School Night on Thursday!


David Schlottman

Principal


PS: Students: Spirit Week is next week! Check out the flyer below for info about how to participate (and earn points for your team)!

Dress Code

Last week I provided a link about the district's new dress code. I wanted to make sure that everyone sees it so I'm going to reprint the main portion of the dress code here in the body of the newsletter. If you'd like to read the whole document, here it is!


This is from TVUSD Administrative Regulation 5132:

"Temecula Valley Unified School District believes that appropriate dress and grooming contribute to a productive learning environment. Student attire and grooming must permit the student to participate in learning without posing a risk to the health or safety of any student or school district personnel. The school district is responsible for seeing that student attire does not disrupt school activity or contribute to a hostile or intimidating atmosphere for any student.

1. Students must wear clothing including a shirt with pants or skirt, or the equivalent (for example dresses, leggings, or shorts) and shoes.

2. Clothing shall be sufficient to conceal undergarments and buttocks. No underwear, undergarments, or clothing that is comparable to undergarments (e.g. bathing suits that resemble the same coverage of an undergarment) may be visible at any time. Clothing may not be see-through or mesh if underwear is visible underneath.

3. Attire may not display images that are violent and/or depict drugs, drug paraphernalia, alcohol, or promote any unlawful act. Additionally, attire may not contain imagery, words or acronyms associated with hate speech, profanity, pornography, or any promotion and/or endorsement of violence, alcohol or drug use."

CELL PHONES: NEED TO BE AWAY DURING INSTRUCTIONAL TIME!


RVHS is working to support good study/classroom habits with all students!


The Staff is united with the common goal to eliminate cell phones as a distraction during learning time. We need our students and parents to partner with us to make this happen. To meet this goal, our teachers will make it clear to each of their classes about WHEN cell phones can be out and used--and when they should be put away/not used. The key will be to avoid cell phone use during instructional time.


Students may (of course) continue to use their phone before school, at break, during passing periods (if time permits), during lunch, and after school. Parents and guardians, please refer to the 22-23 bell schedule (previously shared) and try to communicate with your student during non-instructional time.


THANK YOU!
