So Many Questions: A Message from Principal Neff

Dear Eagle Students, Parents and Staff,

In these times of uncertainty and ever changing directions, I want to thank our Students, Parents and Staff for being resilient, patient and understanding. This semester has been the most unprecedented time we have probably seen in education in many decades. Our student leadership teams have worked tirelessly to organize socially distance events, but could not implement without approval from the Health Department. That also holds true for picture day and other events.

At the direction of the school board and the County Health Department, we err on the side of caution. Since we have recently entered the most restrictive phase again, schools may not open until we are in the red phase again for a minimum of two weeks. We will keep you updated on the countdown to return to school.

We are prepared to return to instruction in person; however, if we are not able to return on January 11th, new schedules will be emailed to students and parents. We will maintain the current block bell schedule (Mondays & Wednesdays 1, 3 & 5 - Tuesdays and Thursdays 2, 4, & 6 and Friday Advisory with asynchronous time until 2:10PM).

A separate email with the reopening plan, which will include several questions and answers about facilities, instruction time, arrival and departure (just to name a few) will be provided in the next week. We will also provide a page on our website for your reference. There has been a lot of thought and preparation that has gone into our planning. We want to ensure the most accurate message is provided when it is released.

Again, thank you for enduring this time with us. Together we are Eagle Strong.


Mr. Neff

Sustainability Club

Preserving land protects biodiversity, which is one of the main ways we can fight climate change. The preservation of local land is also very important to the Northern Chumash (ytt) Tribe, as SLO County is their homeland. To further support the preservation of the Diablo Canyon land and Chumash culture, you can donate to donation boxes that will be at school and around town! Be on the lookout for information we will be sending out via instagram and our newsletter about locations of these donation boxes!

This is the link to Sustainability Club's website where we write newsletters and the club instagrams are @aghs.sustainabilityclub & @the_sustainable_project .
