We Belong Here!

Good day, Falcons!

As we move into another week, we hope you are all healthy, safe, smiling, and feeling supported. Please reach out to Counseling and Student Support Services, just as if we were still on campus. We are here to help with recommendations, help with setting a schedule, or to just listen. We will also be making "House Calls", just to check in and see how everything is going.


The Covid 19 has placed us all under stress and we are all coping differently. If you are searching for additional support, the San Diego County Office of Education has links focused for teenagers! Such as, the “Warm Line”, available24/7 non-emergency resource for anyone seeking emotional support

California Warmline: 1-855-845-7415

Or on the web TEEN Support Guide


We are all in this together to help and support one another.


Big Hugs,

Ms. Bohn, Mr. Lightner, Mrs. Mathews, Ms. Stromberg, and Mr. Tahapary
