Testing the Native Metal of Men

Lancer families,


Poet James Russell Lowell once wrote, "it is by presence of mind in untried emergencies that the native metal of man is tested." I recently wrote a speech for our Future Lancer Night and I wanted to find some language that was an appropriate comment on the recent spate of horrible events that our community has experienced has endured. This poetic line caught my attention - but somehow it seemed incomplete. It seems, at least in our case, that there should be a second line that reads:


"and our community, dear Thousand Oaks, has emerged from a deadly, fiery nightmare stronger, closer and more resilient than ever. Our metal is just fine, thank you"


The untold physical and emotional damage that came as a result of the Woolsey/Hill Fires as well as the Borderline shooting tore a whole in my heart. But seeing how this town responded to these tragedies has left me feeling somehow affirmed, somehow now complete. Having seen the way we have reached out to support, help, and give to not only our friends, families and neighbors, but also to perfect strangers, I cannot help but feel a powerful sense of pride.


During our school closure, I heard from countless people who simply wanted to help in some way - any way. I worked with students, parents, teachers and others who collected thousands of pounds of food for those in need. I saw students filling backpack after backpack with needed school supplies. I watched our first-responders in awe as they saved street after street. I stood and watched the fire with many who I had never met before who suddenly became a close friend as a result of our shared grief. Now that I think about it, saying that I having a strong sense of pride might be too little. Yes it is pride, but it's also a powerful sense of connection - of ownership - of oneness.


Yes, we suffered. But out of this ugly episode we've become a stronger people. As many of you know, I recently adopted this community as my forever home. I cannot be more happy than I am now as I sit and realize that I will be raising my own children in town full of heroes.


Thank you all for your continued support of our school, as well as our community.


Dr. Eric Bergmann

Congratulations to our Boys Cross Country team, led by Michael Mireles' 10th place finish, as they finished a great season by finishing 7th in the team standings at the California State Division 2 Cross Country Championships.


Congratulations to Michael Mireles (Cross Country) and Rayna Grant (Girls Volleyball) on their selection as the October Male and Female Athletes of the Month.


Our Winter Sports have just begun and we wish them the best of luck! GO LANCERS!


Here's our athletic calendar: https://tohsathletics.org/events

Outdoor School Update

Unfortunately, Camp Bloomfield did not survive the recent wildfires. The traditional sleepover Outdoor School Camp will be modified for 2019, and High School Counselors will NO LONGER be needed.


We are so sorry about this situation. There will be no interviews & any applications submitted will be shredded.

Library Renovation About to Begin!

Our library remodel is underway! Soon, our circa-1970s library will be transformed into a modern, comfortable, multi-purpose learning lab. Below are several renderings of what the interior will look like. Please note that during the construction process (scheduled to be complete in June, 2019), the library will be temporarily housed in rooms H1 and H2. Additionally, portions of the exterior of K building facing the quad will also be re-modeled. It will be critical that during times of exterior construction, everyone steer clear of the construction zone. More information on safety precautions will be forthcoming.

New School Profile

Thanks to Tasha Beaudoin and Bill Zasadil for their help in rebuilding our school's public profile. This document is used in many ways - not the least of which is that it's a document that many colleges will view in order to help make admissions decisions about students in our school. I'm sure you'll agree that our new profile shows the great work that we are doing at TOHS. I'm incredibly proud to serve the institution that's described in this work. #BleedGreen #involveacceptinspire. If you can't download or read the photo below, it will soon be posted on our school's website and will be easier to view.

New CVUSD Volunteer Requirements

As many of you are aware, our district has implemented new volunteer requirements. Please know that this is a new process and is always the case with new systems, there will be a period of fine-tuning. District personnel are completely aware that there is a vast difference between the volunteer needs of a high school and an elementary school. We are looking for ways to keep the process streamlined and not overly cumbersome, while at the same time ensuring that every student in the district is kept as safe as possible. No doubt more information will be shared in the not too distant future. I will be sending a separate email to families with a list of helpful resources. In the meantime, here is a link the new Volunteer Registration form that is required for anyone who will be volunteering at our school:


http://www.conejousd.org/Volunteer-with-CVUSD


Please note the need for TB clearance from a doctor, a background check, as well as the documentation needed for those driving students to a school activity. The chart below will show what is required given the nature of the volunteer work to be performed. if you have any questions, please feel free to contact the school office.

Warning about Parking Across the Street and in Neighborhoods

Lancer Families,


Please, please, please do not use the strip mall parking lot across Moorpark for school events! Cars can and will be towed by property management at the owner's expense. Thanks for helping us be good neighbors.


Additionally, please refrain from parking in nearby neighborhoods. We've received several complaints from neighbors about an increase in congestion as well as litter.


Thanks for helping us be great neighbors

Drop-Off/Pick Up

Parents, we need your help! As many have no doubt noticed, during pick up and drop off hours, we see serious congestion along Moorpark Road and Avenida de las Flores. I'm in the process of exploring ways that the congestion can be mitigated (including the start of a conversation with the city), but given the existing combination of the number of drivers and the current configuration of lights, turns and signs, there will always be traffic. There are, however, a few things that our patrons can do in order to keep things moving. Here's a list of helpful hints to aid in your commute.


1. If dropping off your student, give yourself plenty of time - you'll need it.

2. Please do continue to be patient. We realize that can be difficult on some days, but your ongoing patience is appreciated.

3. When entering the front lot from Moorpark onto Lancer Way, please DO remember that the traffic heading eastbound on Lancer Way has a stop sign. As much as I admire and appreciate courteous drivers, if lot-bound drivers stop (with no sign) in order to let eastbound Lancer Way traffic through (who do have a stop sign), they cause traffic to back up severely on Moorpark.

4. When pulling into the lots, pull as far forward as you can go before allowing your student into or out of the car.

5. If our staff is out there and helping move traffic, please DO follow their directions. They are there primarily for the safety of our staff and students as well as to keep traffic moving.

6. When entering the lot on Flores, please use all available entrance lanes.

7. Please do stay alert and drive slowly through our lots. Teachers, staff and students walk through the lots to get into school!

8. Please do not stop on Moorpark or Flores in order to drop off or pick up your student. That presents a very real hazard for everyone involved

9. Please do not drop off or pick up students in the parking half of the front lot.

10. Don't ignore directional signs! that our lots are one-way lots. Cars are only allowed to drive in southerly direction. of the lot. During school hours, DO NOT turn left onto Moorpark when exiting the lot.

Ways to Stay Connected

In addition to our newly designed website (www.conejousd.org/tohs), you can also find us on Facebook. Also, it seems every student group on campus has a Twitter account that will allow you to follow individual groups should you wish to do so. Our school has a great general twitter feed that tweets lots info about the school (@ThousandOaksHS) and I have my own account where I'll tweet my own thoughts and observations about the school (@ewbergmann). Please feel free to follow!
