Dear Falcon Families,


I hope you had a great Thanksgiving break with your friends and families. Congratulations to the SRHS Falcon Corps and Color Guard for another stellar performance at Huntington Beach HS for the 4a-6a California State Championship last week. They finished 4th in the state with a 90.225! Additionally, congratulations to Michael Ohayon who earned the top soloist award in the state. He is the first color guard member to ever receive the top soloist award. Very impressive. Also, congratulations to our Girl’s Cross Country team who finished 18th in the state championships last weekend. Each year our falcons continue to raise the bar with their successes.


In today’s update, I’ve included upcoming calendar events for December and January, a heads up about our lockdown drill next week, some counseling updates, and more. See below for the latest updates as of 12-4-22.

12/5 Late Start Modified Monday Schedule

This Monday, December 5th is a modified Monday. During this time, teachers will be either (1) offering retakes/remediation for students or (2) will be meeting with their fellow colleagues to collaborate on instructional practices. Those teachers who are offering remediation/retake opportunities will have communicated with their students. While school begins at 9:45am, campus will open at the standard 8am time for students who are scheduled with teachers for remediation/retakes. We encourage all students who have scheduled remediation/retake opportunities to take advantage of this time to hone their learning.


Lockdown Drill Week of December 5th

On a day this week we will be conducting a lockdown drill in coordination with school police. We are not announcing the exact day so we can practice in a more realistic setting. The school will send notification of the drill 15 minutes before it occurs via email so you are aware.
