February Updates and Upcoming Events
We are back in full swing and already halfway through trimester 2. Thank you to everybody for your support as we continue to grow and make Rancho an inclusive school with a high-quality education.
Course Advisement Begins – February 3rd starts our annual course advisement season. On the third, students will attend grade-level meetings to familiarize themselves with the courses offered. They will receive their registration form which will be due on February sixth. Each student will meet with their Academy Lead one on one before the end of the trimester to discuss course selection, as well as “a – g” college requirements and graduation requirements. Please refrain from contacting the counselors about this process. Students’ course selection will be available in StudentVue and ParentVue.
Community Updates – Camarillo Police Department is running a parent class starting March 2nd and running through April 6th. Please see the attached flyer. The class is extremely effective and can help any parent of a teenager. The Camarillo Library has many youth events upcoming this month. Please see the attached flyer for more information.
Morning Drop Off – A reminder that school starts promptly at 7:45 AM. The routes become severely backed up in the morning. Try to have your child to school by 7:35 AM to avoid the last-minute rush. Most students dropped off after 7:42 AM will likely be late to class. Thank you for understanding, please drive safely near the school.
Caps and Gowns – As graduation nears RCHS wants to be sure our parents of our Seniors are aware that we have a loaner program for those that do not wish to purchase a cap and gown. If you are interested, please contact the RCHS administration for more info.
School Safety – Though it has been an adjustment, the opening of the gates at 7:00 AM at two locations has helped to continue our safety improvements. Additionally, our Intervention Specialist is available for all students. Please come to the office for more information about how to reach her. RCHS is also in the process of planning a Wellness Center to be opened in the 2020 – 2021 school year. More information about this will come in the following months.
California Healthy Kids Survey – We are again participating in the California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS). We encourage as many families as possible to fill out the survey to create a large enough sample size to have quality feedback. Your opinions are important, and we would like to hear from you. Please fill out the survey here. The instructions are here.
