A Note From the Principal

Hello River Hawk Families,

I hope our students' first day of break was restful and relaxing or filled with something fun!

Our staff is now officially on break and our office will be closed. For enrollment needs, change of address, transcript information, etc. our registrar will have some limited days in the office by appointment only. Please be sure to email her in advance to ensure she will be available. You can reach her at: or 661-295-3700 x1125.

It is hard to believe our first semester is already over and the holidays are so quickly upon us. Our River Hawks have done a great job and I have really enjoyed getting to know so many of them a little bit. I look forward to what the second semester will bring!

I am wishing each of you a wonderful break, an amazing holiday season, and a great start to the New Year!
