The Hugh O’Brien Leadership (HOBY) seminar is an opportunity for a sophomore student to gain valuable leadership skills. The seminar is designed for students who may not be involved with student government but still exhibit leadership qualities and desire to have an impact on their community. It will be held a weekend in June with the dates and location TBD.

Here’s a link to the website: http://www.hoby.org/

It is an excellent way for a sophomore student to develop his/her ethical, effective leadership skills.


If you know of a student that meets those qualifications, please have them stop by the counseling center to pick up an application (or have him/her fill out the attached application). Applications are due Friday, November 8th at 3:00 pm in the Counseling Center.

Santiago Policies & Procedures

Santiago ID Policy!

Students received their ID card and school issued lanyard at registration. Students either got a student ID card OR an ASB ID card if they purchased ASB membership for the year. All students will be required to visibly wear their Santiago ID DAILY on their Santiago lanyard while on campus. If a student loses or damages their ID card they will be required to get a replacement ID from the Shark Shop. Replacement ID cards cost $5.00 and replacement ASB ID cards cost $10.00.

FRONT OFFICE DROP OFF

In order to ensure school safety, drop offs in the front office are limited to ACADEMIC related drop offs. This means that ONLY homework or projects may be left in the office with the receptionist. Items that are not allowed to be dropped off are:

  • Balloons
  • Flowers
  • Money
  • Gifts
  • Food

Thank you in advance for keeping our front office a place of business.


Santiago does NOT allow food delivery services like Uber Eats, Doordash, Grub Hub, etc. on campus during school hours.

NO VAPING ON CAMPUS

Vaping on our campus is a suspendable offense. Currently, e-cigarettes, known as vapes, are the most common tobacco/nicotine products used among teenagers. Teens are using these vaping devices to inhale tobacco, flavored oils, and THC. Our goal is to reduce access and discourage the use on our campus. You can help support us by talking with your child about vaping, keeping an eye out for these products, or monitoring your child’s phone.

Attention Parents! Cars will not be allowed on campus for after school pick-up until 2:30 pm. Limiting traffic and visitors on our campus during school hours is a top priority for our safety.

PARKING DURING SCHOOL HOURS - PARK IN THE FOOTHILL DROPOFF

In order to have enough space for our staff in the upper parking lot, Santiago is asking parents to park on the Foothill drop off area when picking up your child, dropping something off, or if you have a scheduled meeting on campus. Curbs have been painted white and it is no longer a red zone. Thank you for your cooperation.
