Message From the Principal
In our last few weeks of school, please remind your students to take advantage of extended deadlines, late work submission, and our intervention and tutoring program. 8th grade students will need to pass all 6 classes in order to participate in promotion. Summer school will be offered for 7th grade students who don't pass their classes. It's crunch time!
Our teachers and counselors are available to support our students. Please reach out if you have questions. Most teachers will have a deadline in May to turn in late work and make up assignments to allow time for grading before report cards. Families of 7th graders will start to receive summer school information.
We are preparing for our final celebrations for our 8th grade students. Promotion will be held at Hilltop High School on June 1st at 4:30pm. Families will be allowed to bring 6 guests. We will also have an 8th grade awards night and 8th grade party. Watch for more information!
Spring sports are off to an amazing start! Our athletes are making BVM proud on the courts and on the fields. Keep it up, Crusaders!
Let's make the end of the school year as successful and positive as possible. This has been a challenging and exciting year and we want to wrap it up in style! Thank you for your continued support and we wish all of our Crusaders luck in these last few weeks.

Reminder that students MAY NOT report to school if they are experiencing any COVID 19 identified symptoms, unless the school has previously received documentation of a pre-existing health condition that mirrors a COVID symptoms (hay fever, migraines). If students report to school with symptoms, they will be removed from instruction and parents will be called to pick students up. Students may not return to school until they present a Negative PCR test and symptoms have improved.
Reminder that students that are on Modified Quarantine must provide proof of testing every 3-4 days (or use a District site that we have records of their testing), or they will not be allowed to return to school on the 5th day and will have to remain home until they provide proof of the negative test or until the 10 day quarantine expires.

Face Covering and Social Distancing Protocols
While we are still requesting social distancing be respected whenever possible on campus, CDPH has removed minimum social distancing requirements generally and specifically in classrooms and buses.
As is required by OSHA and/or California Department of Public Health, the SUHSD will maintain the requirement for all students and employees to wear face coverings indoors on all school sites absent a medical exemption cleared through the District. Similarly, all visitors to District facilities will be required to wear masks absent exemptions.
When outdoors, staff, visitors and students are STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to wear a mask. In large gatherings outdoors, staff, students and volunteers will be encouraged to wear masks.
