Dear Falcon Families,


Our SRHS Visual Arts Film Festival, hosted by Mrs. Francisco, Mr. Jacobs, Ms. Brady, and Mr Wilson is taking place this Friday, April 28th. Please come and enjoy the amazing work our SRHS students have created. The event begins at 7:30pm. In today’s message, I’ve shared a message from the director of the Miramar College Firefighter academy about training burns and a message from SDPD SWAT regarding active shooter training. Both of these exercises will be taking place in the Scripps Ranch community so the organizations want to give you a heads up to not be alarmed. See the respective blurbs below for the full details along with the accompanying maps. I hope you are enjoying your Sunday and see below for the latest updates as of 4-23-23.


* Please forward this message to your child’s email account so they have all the latest info.

Fire Training will take place at 10440 Black Mountain Road San Diego CA on April 20th, 21st, 22nd, 24th & 25th intermittently from approximately 9am to 5pm each day. The training burns will last between 20-40 minutes in length and will be conducted 4-6 times on each of those dates/times.
