Welcome Back to School!

Placerita Jr. High - August 15th, 2018

School Starts on Thursday August 16th (Tomorrow)

The Placerita staff is happy to welcome you all back for the 2018-19 school year. We hope this year is a great experience for all of our students. Just a couple things about tomorrow...

We have a new food service provider for this school year. Sodexo is the new company that will providing lunches for our students. They have a unique approach to the food products they provide with a focus on quality and presentation. There will be four menu options; 1) Upper Crust will include Pizza choices each day; 2) Honor Roll will be the sandwich menu each day; 3) Fiesta will be the Mexican Food menu each day: 3) Traditions will include multiple specials daily. There will be three separate lines for students to follow. Student swill need to check which line they are in to get what they want for the day. We will have a cart out in the quad for the first time in a while for students to get their lunch. Please see the flyer below for menu options and information. You can click on "control +" to expand the flyer if you are on a desktop and you can not read it or you can download the flyer just below so you can save it on your device.

New For the Fall

In case you were not aware we have all new air units on most of our older classroom structures. They replaced most of them by using a helicopter earlier in the summer. Also… Every light on campus has been converted to LED. That process has taken most of the summer to complete and the team completing the lighting is also completing the installation of the air units. It will save the District thousands of dollars in electrical over the next few years. The biggest lighting difference is in the gym. Also… We now have new asphalt on our basketball courts. This was a long time coming but it looks very nice. Check out the pictures :)

Bike Rack Moved

Just a note that the bike rack has been moved behind the 10 building on the opposite side of campus from where it was last year. Students can enter the gate by the West teacher parking lot on Dalby to get to the bike rack. We will have someone out directing students today and tomorrow.
