Reminder: Online Attendance

  • · Regular attendance for all classes is mandatory.
  • · Within the first 30 minutes of class, students will only be counted as “present” by their teacher if they are at a working laptop, with both the video camera and sound on.
  • · The expectation is that students are to stay logged in for the entire class period or until the teacher dismisses them.
  • · Students may not share screens. Each student must individually log-in to his/her scheduled class.
  • · If a student is struggling to log-in or experiencing technical difficulties, the student must take a screen shot of the login message and email the teacher immediately for assistance.
  • · Parents must contact Ms. Ruiz to report or excuse a student’s absence.

End of the 3rd Quarter Marking Period

Friday, 3/27, is the last day of the 3rd quarter marking period. All assignments and assessments must be completed on or before that day. Final grades will be posted on PowerSchool by Friday April 3rd.


During this campus closure we are still following our official, published 2019-2020 school calendar, as posted on our school's website. On our calendar we have scheduled a professional day for Monday, 3/30 and a school holiday for Cesar Chavez Day on Tuesday, 3/31. THERE WILL BE NO ONLINE CLASSES EITHER OF THOSE DAYS. Online classes will resume on Wednesday, 4/1, the first day of the 4th quarter marking period.

Campus Closure Through April 19th

Following the Governor's directives, we will keep our campus closed and continue online classes through Friday, April 10th.

Following our school calendar, our Spring Break holiday will then start on Monday, April13th and continue through Friday, April 17th. There will be no online classes during that week.

It is our hope that we will be able to reopen the campus on Monday, April 20th, but it will depend upon the recommendations from the California Department of Health and the Governor's Office. We will continue to update you weekly with the latest news from those offices.
