Principal's Update 

Hello Students and families!

We are a week away from a well deserved break which I am hoping students and staff will use to rest and recharge. The fatigue of a long first semester has made us a bit loose in a few areas that I need your support with.

To name one: the amount of trash I am seeing around campus, particularly after brunch and lunch is unacceptable and pretty embarrassing. The community has invested more money and resources into making our school one of the most beautiful campuses around and we owe it to them and ourselves to keep it clean. There is absolutely no reason to leave trash out with so many bins available around the school.

[insert photos of trash after lunch here]

I expect everyone to do their part to keep SR clean and well maintained.

Last, as we approach the Holidays, I am requesting $25 gift cards to department stores (ie. Target) or Visa gift cards that we can give to identified students in need to buy gifts and/or food. If you are able to donate, please turn your gift card to the main office by December 11th. It is important that these donations be given in person so you can receive a receipt for proper accounting.

Thank you and have a great three day weekend!

SRHS Litter Problem

Let's all work together to keep SRHS looking good!  

Please remind your student to pick up after themselves! 

Important Student Parking Info!!!

Student Parking is EXTREMELY LIMITED for the rest of the semester due to the Tree Lot set up in the Stadium Parking Lot!!  Only Seniors with approved Parking Permits can park on Campus in the Front lot only where it is not indicated "STAFF".  
Warning Stickers have been distributed the last few weeks to help prepare!  Please talk to your student and allow extra time to find parking off campus.  Please remind them to be respectful to our neighbors!
Tree Lot 

It's that time of the year again, that's right, it's Tree Lot time! Please sign up to Volunteer at our biggest fundraising event of the year. This fundraiser brings in $75,000+ a year that goes straight into Student Classes, Sports Team, Groups, Clubs and more. Please sign up and select where you want to apply your hours to. You must be prepared to show up and work the full shift that you sign up for. We work as a team and we are counting on you for support.
See you out on the Lot!

Attendance Procedures

Reporting an Absence:

• Please call San Rafael High School each day that your student is absent. The Attendance Office
voicemail records messages 24 hours a day: 415-485- 2335 (English and Spanish).

• If you have not called, your student may also bring to the Attendance Office a guardian signed
and dated note explaining their absence.

• Please try to schedule doctor or legal appointments outside of school hours.

• Please call with anticipation or send a note with your student the day of any appointment you
must schedule during the school day. This gives us time to notify teachers and not disrupt class.

• College visits and religious holidays require the student and parent complete a Warranted Absence form two weeks prior to the absence. Warranted Absence forms are available online and in the Attendance office

We want your students to be successful; let's work together to make sure that all students attend school every day.

  • College Applications: CSU/UC Application deadline is November 30th. 

  • 10th Grade: Monday, November 13h, counselors will be visiting the (CP |AP) World History classes to deliver workshops to all 10th grade students. The presentation will give students an opportunity to begin the college and career exploration process. Students will also have a chance to work on their Academic Plans in Aeries. Students should report to class on time and bring their charged Chromebook. 

1st Quarter Grades: 1st quarter grades have officially been mailed out to families. We are more than half way through the semester. This is a friendly reminder to our students to continue to use Advisory/Tutorial to seek academic support.

Evergreen State College Representative Visit: 11/16 @ lunch

As of today you only have 21 days to complete your UC and CSU applications for the November 30th due date. Remember that the CCC is here to help you with the applications and your essays. Every advisory the CCC hosts application workshops so please take advantage of our remaining 3 advisory workshops before applications are due (sign up on RTI). Do not wait until the last minute to submit because every year the applications glitch due to the high amount of users on the website.  Every Friday from 3:10 pm to 4:10 pm the CCC has been hosting application workshops, please continue to or start attending them (this Friday we will not have a workshop due to Veterans Day, but we will host again on November 17). Below are links to schedule meetings with CCC staff who can help with your college applications and essays; feel free to schedule a one-on-one meeting with any of us for a time that works best for you (we prefer you not schedule a meeting with us during a class you currently have a low grade in). 

Schedule a meeting with Ms. French
Schedule a meeting with Ms. Cifuentes
Schedule a meeting with Ms. Hernandez from 10,000 Degrees

As a friendly reminder, the CCC will be CLOSED on Thanksgiving Break and will not be answering emails from November 20th- 24th.
