Información del Director in Español


Hello Bruin Community,


I have several updates about upcoming SCHS events prior to the start of school, including an invitation to our first ever virtual Town Hall meeting.


SCHS TOWN HALL MEETING - Tuesday, July 28

SCHS will be hosting two Town Hall virtual meetings on Tuesday, July 28.  The first, which will be in English, will be from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm.  The second, which will be in Spanish, will be from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm.  During this optional meeting, families are welcome to attend to learn more about our plans for the coming school year.  While we will continue to share all essential elements of our plan via email, this Town Hall will allow us to go a bit deeper into that plan as well as respond to some of your questions.  At the appropriate time, you can CLICK HERE TO ENTER THE TOWN HALL MEETING.  The passcode is 676096


FRESHMAN ORIENTATION - Tuesday, August 4

We will be hosting an on-line orientation for our incoming  freshmen on Tuesday, August 4.  We will be hosting two sessions.  Students with last names A-L will be asked to attend from 9:00-10:20 am, and students with last names M-Z will be asked to attend from 11:00 am to 12:20 pm.  Thanks to our teacher leaders, Lindsey Couto-Mohamed and Bill Cheney, as well as all of our juniors and seniors in the Link Crew that will help to welcome our newest Bruins.  More details will be sent to freshman families next week.


FRESHMAN PARENT MEETING - Wednesday, August 5

We will be hosting two virtual meetings for the parents and guardians of our incoming freshmen on Wednesday, August 5.  The first, which will be in English, will be from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm.  The second, which will be in Spanish, will be from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm.  We will be going over what to expect for your students in the coming school year, including guidance from our academic counselors.  More details will be sent to freshman families next week.


SCHEDULE & TEXTBOOK PICK-UP - Monday-Friday, August 10-14

We will be communicating with students and families about student schedules in two ways.  The first is that we will post student schedules in your individualized schoolloop portals (freshmen, we will be communicating about how to sign up for schoolloop in early August).  We will also be giving out paper copies of your schedule during our textbook pick-up process.  The schedules will include the Google Classroom code for each class so that students can access their on-line classes.


For the textbook pick-up, we will ask students/families to drive through our bus circle.  This will allow for the safest possible transfer of your needed materials.  Based on each student’s schedule, we will have a bag for each student with their printed schedule, needed textbooks, and other key tools.  For students who don’t have a Chromebook, we will also be distributing Chromebooks via this process.


We are asking students to come to the SCHS Bus Circle to pick up their textbooks and other items at the following times:
