Taft High School


Raider Families,

Our students have been enjoying our new library and our new entrance. We will continue to work on making our parking lot easier to maneuver. We are currently working with the city as we have no control over the lights on Culebra. We have asked that traffic be monitored and more recently have reported that the light at our main entrance seems not to be in the cycle as it remains red. Thank you so much for your patience.

Just a reminder of a few changes as we transition to our new security lobby.

  • We can no longer accept items being dropped off at the front office during the day. Please visit with your student to ensure they have everything they need before they leave home.

  • Any parent pick up from school must happen no later than 4:05pm. We will not be able to release students later than this time due to it being too close to dismissal time.

  • Our front loop is open for parent pick up and drop off. The entrance closest to the Communications Arts will be open for student arrival only and will remain locked throughout the day. Thank you again in advance for your support.
