Scheduling Talks for Juniors with their Counselor
In the next few days, you will be meeting with your school counselor via Google Meet during your English class (see below for the schedule). Further scheduling items will be emailed to you through parent square. It is very important that you attend your sessions with your school counselor and that you complete all the steps that will be given to you in order to finalize your 2021-2022 schedule.
Additionally, we will be mailing you the following items:
- Transcript (it documents all your semester final grades)
- High School Graduation Status (keeps track of what credits you completed and still need)
- CSU Eligibility Report (keeps track of your A-G 4 year college preparatory requirements)
If you have any questions, you may contact a counseling secretary at (805) 474-3200 ext. 2030 or at 2031. You can also email them at firstname.lastname@example.org or at email@example.com .

Reopening Schools Update
In case you missed it, we wanted to make sure you saw that the California Department of Public Health released its new guidance for schools planning to reopen for in-person instruction, as well as a COVID-19 School Guidance Checklist. The good news is that our current plan already incorporates most of the requirements. The level of detail and guidance included this new release is encouraging.
Our county’s case rates still remain well beyond the threshold limit of 25/100,000 required for reopening. Please keep in mind that our current board adopted reopening criteria requires our county to remain in the red tier for two weeks.
The new guidance affects all schools, which are required to post a compliant COVID-19 Safety Plan prior to reopening. Schools that are already open must post their COVID-19 Safety Plan by February 1. Reopened is defined as having at least an entire grade span on campus for in-person instruction. We have robust learning pods but not entire grade spans so we are not considered to be reopened.
A more detailed update will be provided during Tuesday’s school board meeting. We will share the meeting materials with you via email when they are available.
