Bruin Country Principal's Update (Diploma Pick-up & Grad Video, Summer Workouts, Enrollment Center, Counseling Changes)
Posted 6/18/20


Hello Bruin Community,

I hope your summer is off to a happy and safe start.  I have a handful of updates for you, including a couple of items designed to make your life a bit easier going forward.


For our graduating seniors, we are ready to disperse your actual diplomas to go in the beautiful diploma cases that you received as part of the on-line graduation ceremony.  We will be doing a drive-through diploma pick-up in the SCHS Bus Circle on Wednesday & Thursday, June 24-25 from 8:00am-11:00am and 12:00pm-3:00pm both days.  We will need to see the graduate’s photo ID in order to give out the diploma.  For the handful of graduates who still have library books, textbooks, chromebooks, or athletic gear that needs to be turned in, you will receive a loopmail and/or a phone call to let you know about those items by the end of the day on Friday, June 19.  You can turn in those items or pay the relevant fees at the same time you pick up your diploma.  Additionally, we have an updated “Commemorative Edition” of our graduation videoThis Commemorative Edition corrects a few errors and adds in extra pictures that many of our grads submitted.  Enjoy!


Based on a new protocol approved by the superintendents of the six districts of our athletic league, we will start allowing teams to hold voluntary conditioning workouts next week.  All teams that are planning to participate will have to submit a detailed plan that ensures social distancing, small cohorted groups, and other safety considerations in order to comply with county public health guidelines.  All workouts will be outdoors, non-contact, and in groups of not more than twelve athletes that stay together for each workout.  Participation is not required, but we are happy to be able to provide this opportunity for students to safely be together with their peers.  See yesterday’s email for more details. 


Our district has a new Enrollment Center that will handle all new enrollees, our residency verifications, and collection of emergency contact info .  The great news for families is that nearly all of the work will be able to be done online, and the district has opted to do residency checks only when a family initially enrolls, moves, or changes schools.  All families will have to submit a couple items each year, including updating any emergency contact info, but this should be a significantly easier process for most.  Starting June 24, 2020, families will complete new student registration and the annual student information update through our online enrollment system. For reference, information and forms are available on our Enrollment webpage. If you need assistance completing a new student registration or the annual student information update please contact the Enrollment Center by emailing or calling (408) 423-3596. Staff will be assisting families by phone, video conference, and curbside appointments. 


Due to personnel changes for the 2020-21 school year, the following is the new alpha breakdown for next year. The changes primarily affect students with last names between Bh - Cl and K - Lo.  Additionally, the schoolloop counseling page now allows students/families to request appointments with counselors directly from our website.  While this feature won’t be active while counselors are on summer vacation, it should simplify these requests when the counselors return in late July and early August.

  • Jeanne Mustille - Last Names A - Be, AVID 9

  • Amoreena Fidani - Last Names Bh - Cl, AVID 9

  • Victoria Aguaristi - Last Names Co - G

  • April Anderson - Last Names H - Lo, AVID 12

  • Lynn Camacho-Light - Last Names Lu - Ol, AVID 11

  • Cindy Menezes - Last Names Ou - Se

  • Katy Weeks - Last Names Sh - Z, AVID 10
