Arroyo Seco Jr. High School -- October 18, 2019

Principal's Message

Hello Seco Families,


Today is the last day of the first quarter. Grades will be posted in Infinite Campus by Tuesday afternoon. The second quarter starts Monday. Students' second quarter schedules will be available on Infinite Campus after 3:30 on Friday. Over the weekend, your children can print them from home or access them through a smart phone. Please note that any schedule obtained prior to this weekend may not be accurate. Changes to exploratories and PE classes will continue to be made throughout the week. If needed, students can pick up a printed schedule from the counseling office before school on Monday. Students DO NOT need to pick up a schedule if they have already printed it at home or obtained it through their phone.


Please note that our Vision Screening minimum day has been rescheduled to November 22, 2019. This was the date originally scheduled for October 11, when schools were closed due to the fire. November 22, originally scheduled to be a regular day, will now be a minimum day with dismissal at 11:35 am.


Yesterday, we participated in the Great California Shakeout and had a successful school-wide earthquake drill. Students were well behaved throughout the drill. Thank you for your support in helping to ensure everyone's safety in the event of an emergency.


Students are allowed to dress for Halloween on October 31. However, they must adhere to the school dress code and to the Halloween Dress Guidelines spelled out below. Have them check with their Assistant Principal before Halloween with any specific concerns or questions.


Have a great weekend!
