To gather data about our families’ perception of school safety and connectedness, the district has launched the annual School Climate Survey. Parent’s perception of safety and connectedness is one of the state’s priorities for education. This is the first time our district has implemented a wide-ranging survey of these measures for families. The data will be reported in the LCAP at the district level. The survey can be taken on a mobile device, tablet, or laptop.

A reminder that participation in the Graduation Ceremony is an earned privilege, not a right. Administration reserves the right to exclude any student from participating in this ceremony for any reason. Graduating seniors must meet the following criteria in order to participate in the Graduation Ceremony:
For the first time in our district’s history, they will provide an opportunity for all juniors to take the SAT test on April 10th. This test is free. Juniors will follow a modified schedule on April 10th to allow for the test, which takes approximately 3.5 hours. They will be served breakfast in their testing classroom and lunch immediately following the test.
3rd quarter progress grades will be mailed soon. This is a critical time in the year to monitor grades to ensure that students are on track to earn all of their credits. If you have any questions, please email your student’s teacher(s) and/or counselor to make sure you have all the information you need to support academic success.
Summer School will include several programs this year:
On Tuesday, February 27th we will conduct a lockdown drill during one of the passing periods. We must practice safety during periods of unstructured time when students and staff are not already in secured spaces. An incident could very likely occur during a passing period or during lunch, and we must be prepared. Staff have been instructed to talk with students tomorrow about how to respond appropriately during the Tuesday drill, including where they should go and where they should not go.
Late yesterday, school officials were informed that one of our students had been in possession of a bb gun during the school day. We immediately notified law enforcement who investigated, identified, and detained the student in question and confirmed the report. Immediate and appropriate disciplinary actions were taken.

Normally we reserve student and staff recognition for the end of the Messengers, but we’re putting this on first: The Rosemont wrestling team won the Division IV Section Title on Saturday! Our boys beat Livingston, and Yuba City HS to get to the section final versus Patterson HS. In a closely contested match, RHS prevailed with a 36-33 win! Standout wrestlers in the Section tournament include Amari Baker and Telman Gevorkyan, who each went 3-0 with 3 pins. Sam Keller, Tommy Vang, Logan Angeles and Jordan McKay finished undefeated for the day.
Tomorrow is the first day of the 2nd semester. This is a great time to remind students to remain focused and committed. We would also like to remind students about the importance of attending school every day. Poor attendance negatively impacts students’ ability to be successful academically. We will discuss this and other important second semester information at grade level assemblies Tuesday this week.
Spring Sports Night for all families participating in spring sports is next Monday, February 5th at 6:00 pm in the Auditorium.
This week is finals week. Students are released at 12:07 Monday through Friday and lunch is served at that time. Zero period PE/Rec classes are still running this week. 7th period Marching Band, Drama, and Accelerate Education are also running this week and end at 1:18. Finals take place on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. On Tuesday, students take finals in periods 1 and 2. On Wednesday, they take finals in periods 3 and 4, and on Thursday, they take finals in periods 5 and 6.
The Messenger phone call is now working again after several weeks offline. Also, due to renewed parent interest, I will return to including student and staff news in the weekly Messenger phone call. After general announcements, I will announce that those highlights are coming. At that point, you may terminate the call if you do not want to hear that portion. The entire Messenger will be available through email, under “Principal’s Message” on the website, and also under Announcements in Infinite Campus. Hopefully, there is at least one option that works for everyone.
In addition to posting the weekly Messengers on our website and also in Infinite Campus, we will now email it, as well. Hopefully, one of these sources will be a convenient way for each of our families to receive important school news. The phone Messenger will contain only important school information. The other postings will contain additional information about student accomplishments in academic achievement, sports, music and other programs here on campus.

At the request of our Superintendent, we will be conducting a lockdown drill sometime this week. Although we will assure everyone that this is only a drill, the day and time will not be announced.

Report cards will be mailed by November 17th from the district office. Students who have failing grades this early in the year are in danger of becoming credit deficient and off-track for Graduation.

Remember that students who are on the no-go list for grades have the opportunity to come off the list when teachers submit grades. Students who receive any grade of “F” on are on the no-go list until 2nd quarter progress reports.
