THE GREAT SHAKE OUT 2022
THANK YOU to our students and staff for participating in the Great ShakeOut earthquake drill.
Your support during this and every drill, as well as real emergencies, is crucial to the safety of our staff and students. In the event of a real emergency, family reunification will take place in the student lot to check your student out. You will not report to the front office. We will support each other and our students. Flexibility and communication are vital. Our goal is to keep everyone safe. Our hard work to prepare and practice emergency procedures will help us meet our goal.
Fun fact from yesterday's drill: 2154 students evacuated their classrooms, went to their evacuation area, and were all accounted for in 24 minutes.
Please take the time to talk with your students about their emergency plans outside of school hours.
Thank you again for your support.
CHOIR PANCAKE BREAKFAST 10/29!
Class of 2023 Parents and Seniors!
Please be advised that when ordering at yearbookordercenter.com, you cannot reserve a spot or put a down payment. You must complete your tribute, finalize it and pay it in full in order to secure your tribute before they sell out or by January 31, whichever comes first. You may design your tribute, save your work and return to it later, but doing so does not save nor guarantee a spot. Pro tip: Gather the photos and prepare your message before starting your tribute so that you can complete it in less time.
Any questions? Contact Ms. Tan at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your graduate will cherish the memory of a senior tribute for years to come. Order yours before they sell out!

For full-day absences, a parent/guardian must contact the attendance office by the end of the day.
