Heading towards Winter more to go!

Good Afternoon Rattlers!

This week brought lots of things to be grateful for as we spent a lot of time in classroom watching students do truly amazing things. They have had to adapt so much and I always say it but I mean it...CHHS is the best school in all the land! This blog will focus not only on this upcoming week leading into the Holiday but also on the week we return so you are prepared.

Powderpuff has been postponed until the new year as weather isn't looking great so stay tuned for that and enjoy your Friday night at home! However, there are many activities during the days next week.

Looking to donate in 2021? The Serra Foundation is always looking for donations to benefit the academic and athletic departments.

All tax deductible donations can be made at:

Sock Drive: The Robotics Team is doing a sock drive for the holidays to help those in need. This organization seeks to provide free, emergency clothing to individuals and families who are experiencing financial hardship or crisis. They are an awesome organization and we are happy to help!


Saturday School:

Does you child have tardies or unexcused absences that will prevent them from future events and activities or a student who may need tutoring?????? Saturday School is a way to make these up. TO SIGN UP CLICK THIS LINK:

Each child who was eligible--and its almost everyone--got a letter with the link to sign up. Please make sure you are checking PowerSchool daily.


We are having an uptick in issues in the bathrooms. We will not tolerate it. The other HS Principals are reporting the same thing so this isn't limited to here. We had a meeting today and will be implementing a new plan to address this issue. We take it seriously, however we are stronger in numbers...please let your children know if they see something they should report it.

Gifts for the Holidays!!!

This time of year is also the time we like to give gifts. There are two ways in which we are offering ways to not only gift your loved ones but also help the school. Here's how:

1. SWAG Store



Testing for Athletes over the break is on WEDNESDAY December 22th and 29th from 1:00-4:00.


Need Tutoring from a TEACHER??? Here is the schedule: School-wide Tutoring Schedule!

Vaccine Mandate:

The district is MOVING FORWARD with this despite what you may be hearing on the news. Please go to this page: This page has so many great questions about Student Vaccines!

The school is not the decision maker on these issues. Many of you are trying to meet with office or CHHS Admin about this issue. We hold no power and we have all the same information I have put out and nothing more. I know as little as you do and am awaiting more details. I know it's frustrating.

If you are receiving text messages from someone telling you you are in close contact or non close contact it is REAL and is the district. Depending on who contacts you they aren't being the most transparent in identifying themselves. You have every right to ask what entity they are from, but more than likely they are from SDUSD or Dept. of Health.


Course Selections will start at the end of January and will go through February so we can get started on master schedule.

FAFSA deadline is March 2, 2022, yet the sooner you submit your application the better chance you have of getting more financial aid. We work with UCSD CalSoap to host CalSoap Workshops to help students and parents complete their FAFSA. If you are interested in scheduling a one on one appointment please select a date:

Do you have a Senior? Well CHHS has a Booster Club so you can stay up to date on things and events pertaining to them:

The Canyon Hills/Serra Parent Class Boosters is a parent organization that supports your student's graduating class with activities and events not typically sponsored by the school. As your student approaches senior year, through fundraising and donations, this group helps offset the cost and implement activities like grad-night, prom, senior luncheon, graduation venue, powder-puff, and more.
