Hello Bruin Community,

 

I have two important updates for you.

 

HAWK Beacon Installation on Benton & Moraga:

 

As many of you know, the City of Santa Clara is installing new HAWK Beacons around the city, and one of them will be going in at the intersection in front of SCHS.  This will be a major improvement for student safety, and it should help with traffic flow as well.  We have finally received notification of the timeline, and construction work should be starting within the next week or so.  The city anticipates finishing the project by mid November.  There will be some traffic delays during the construction, but I think we can all agree that these will be worth it.

 

The way HAWK Beacons work blends the benefits of a full lighted crosswalk with the convenience of turning off during non-peak times.  If you haven't experienced one yet, I encourage you to check out this video made to explain how HAWK Beacons work.  

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdauhuZaChM&feature=youtu.be

 

The HAWK Beacons are off most of the time, allowing through traffic to travel unimpeded.  At these times, there will be a symbol indicating to pedestrians not to walk.  When a pedestrian triggers the system, it will begin by going through flashing yellow, solid yellow, solid red, and flashing red lights before returning to it's normal off position.  Rules for all these lights are exactly the same as other times lights are used.  When the light turns red, pedestrians will be allowed to cross similar to a normal lighted crosswalk.  

 

We recognize that there will be a learning curve with this new system, and we encourage everyone to be patient, look carefully, and keep student safety at the heart of what we all do.

 

 

PSAT Test on October 11:

 

SCHS will be hosting a PSAT test on October 11.  Because of the major benefits of taking this test in terms of college preparedness, our district is paying for any  sophomores who sign up to take the test for free.  Juniors are also welcome to sign up at a cost of $16.   So far, over 400 students have signed up to take the test.  We have a limited number left, and we will continue to allow students to sign up until either we run out of tests or Friday, October 6 (whichever comes first).  If your student wants to sign up, sophomores can do so by going to the counseling office, and juniors can do so by visiting our bookkeeper.

 

The test starts at 7:30 am and lasts until about lunchtime.  Students will miss 3rd period that day.  Students who take the test will automatically be excused from 3rd period.  For students that ride the bus, an additional morning bus run will happen on October 11.  All students who are taking the test should arrive by 7:15 with their photo ID and pencils.

 

For students who are not taking the test, this is a normal school day and these students will follow the standard Wednesday bell schedule.

 

Sincerely,

Gregory Shelby

Principal, SCHS

Hello Bruin Community,

 

We are in the ever-busy fall, when it seems like the only thing that can match our full schedule is our energetic student body.  We've had a quite success Club Fair to help students engage with their peers in meaningful ways, and we have recently passed the halfway point of the first quarter.  We have several upcoming events that I want to highlight for you.

 

Senior Parent Meeting:

On Wednesday at 7:00 pm in our SCHS Theater, we invite all parents of senior students to a meeting hosted by our counseling department.  The agenda will focus on how to best support your senior students as they go through this important year and prepare for college/career.  We will also be highlighting many of the memorable events that make senior year so special.  We will be hosting similar parent nights for the other classes on upcoming dates.  Junior parents will meet on October 4, sophomores on November 1, and freshmen on January 17.

 

DACA Information Night:

Our district strives to support all of our students and families.  For families and friends of Dreamers affected by the news about DACA, the district is hosting an information night so that people can get the most up-to-date and accurate understanding of what is going on with DACA and how. the district will be responding.  This meeting will be hosted at Scott Lane Elementary (1925 Scott Lane Blvd) on Wednesday, 9/20/17, at 6:30 pm.  Interpreters and child care will be provided.  A flyer about this event is attached.

 

Homecoming:

One of the highlights of the year is upon us.  This week is our Homecoming Week.  Four important notes for families to know about include:

 

1) There is an alternate schedule for Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.  If you haven't seen the schedule yet, this schedule is listed on schoolloop.

    • Wednesday: Per 1 - 10:00-10:54 / Per 3 - 11:00-12:00 / Lunch - 12:00-12:35 / Per 5 - 12:41-1:35 / Per 7 - 1:41-2:35

    • Thursday: Use the Mon/Tue/Fri Schedule (not the normal Thursday block schedule)

    • Friday: Per 2 - 8:26-9:20 / HC Rally - 9:30-10:21 / Per 4 - 10:31-11:30 / Lunch - 11:30-12:05 / Per 6 - 12:11-1:052

2) On Thursday Night, we will be hosting Homecoming parade float building in our quad from 3:00 pm to 10:00 pm.  The floats for our Homecoming Parade reflect the ingenuity of our students and are among the best high school floats I've ever seen.  This float building night is often as memorable as the Homecoming events themselves.  Parents are welcome to stay.  There will be a limited number of students who will be allowed to stay past 10:00 pm, and those students have to permission slips that are given by the SBO and signed by parents.  If you don't sign a slip, you should know that your student will be leaving campus no later than 10:00 pm.

3) Our Homecoming Parade starts at 1:30 pm on Friday.  We leave from the front of the school, heading toward Pomeroy Elementary.  We use El Sobrante to cross Kiely, weaving our way over to Central Park Elementary before returning to SCHS.  Passing the two elementary schools and seeing the delight on the young faces is definitely a highlight of the parade.  Typically, over 400 students (sometimes  participate in the parade, and these students all get free admission to the game that night.

4) Our actual Homecoming Ceremony follows the Frosh/Soph football game on Friday.  This typically puts us at around 6:15 or 6:30.  The varsity Homecoming game versus Gunn HS will start at 7:15 pm.  We invite all families to come out and join this festive event.

 

Parent Education Night:

On Wednesday, September 27 at 7:00 pm, our Wellness Center will be hosting a Parent Education Night on Teen Stress & Anxiety.  Find out more by visiting: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/parent-education-night-stress-anxiety-your-teen-tickets-37824345636

 

As always, I encourage parents who are on Facebook to sign up for the SCHS PTSA Facebook page.  More importantly, I encourage you to stay active in your teenager's life, communicating with them, their teachers, and others about what is going on academically, socially, and emotionally with your student.

 

Sincerely,

Gregory Shelby

Hello Bruin Community,

 

The school year is off to a solid start, and we have much to celebrate.  Due to the efforts of our counseling department, the overwhelming majority of students have had their schedules finalized.  Our teachers are welcoming students into classes.  As I observe the campus, I see smiles in the quad and engagement in the classrooms.

 

Our annual Back to School Night is coming up.  Attached to this email is a copy of the letter that is on the way to each of your houses.  Back to School Night will be held on the evening of Wednesday, September 6.  At this event, in addition to 10 minute sessions with each of your student's teachers, you'll be introduced to the SCHS admin team and leaders from important groups including the PTSA, Athletic Boosters, and Music Boosters.  There will also be representatives from several programs of interest such as SVCTE and our Workability program.

 

The basic timing of the evening is as follows:

  • Orientation Meeting for all parents in the gym from 6:30 to 7:00 pm
  • Classroom visits, 10 minutes for each period, with 5 minutes between periods, from 7:10 to 8:50 pm
  • PTSA Silent Auction in the main gym from 6:00 to 9:00 pm

Sincerely,

Gregory Shelby
