Pep Rally, Spring Break, and a Prom Venue!

Good Afternoon Rattler Nation,

We have a lot to talk about in this blog, so please read everything. Spring Break is starting and we hope you and your students take this time to recharge as I'm sure we all need it to push through the last weeks of school! Principals Coffee is moved from the Friday of Spring break to April 8, 202,2 and is a meeting for parents only as it is not a public meeting. We have an offsite Prom Venue and want to thank Joey Schmidt for not giving up and the students who voted for it to move forward! Details below. We have a fantastic pep rally today and are very excited about it. Details are as follows:

ASB has been hard at work, and we are proud to announce the first rally in Canyon Hills History! Join us next Friday, March 25th, in the stadium. We have some special surprises in store for all of you, so make sure to be there! Wear your class colors and bring that Canyon Hills Spirit!

Seniors- Red

Juniors- Black

Sophomores- White

Freshman- Gray

Incident on Tuesday:

On Tuesday, we had to call an ambulance for a child having a medical issue. That probably happens once a month; usually, they enter the school for a different entrance. This emergency was in our new building, so we had to enter the other way in front. The child was taken, and I covered them because students sadly were videotaping and I needed to protect their privacy. The student was fine and discharged later that day. Students started saying everything from a child OD'd and died on campus--never has happened--to there was a bathroom full of blood--never happened---to we had a knife fight--never happened and everything in between. This occurs anytime there is an ambulance here.

In past years, unfortunately, we have lost students tragically. When that happens, a very strict protocol is followed, including a statement to the community. However, just like the lockdown, some things will not be discussed unless it is the passing of a student or staff member and no details will be provided. Families want privacy and in the end, if it was your child you would want it.

I did let staff know there was nothing worth reporting than a medical emergency and if they heard kids talking to address it. However, as a parent please speak to your children about what to do when a medical emergency is seen on campus or anywhere, and that is two things:

  1. Please do not videotape--I was very disappointed to see this.

  2. Do not spread things you did not witness firsthand, as that is also very damaging and traumatizes the family more than they already are having to meet their child at the hospital.

We appreciate your support.

MASKING: to end when we return--but must be worn in health office still!!!!

- All students will be provided at-home Covid test kits next Thursday, 3/24/22, to self-test before returning to campus after spring break. Testing is not mandatory for return but encouraged. The school is closed all spring break. We will not be here to give you a test.

- Although masking indoors and outdoors is optional after spring break, the CDPH requires masks to be worn in all health care settings - including the Canyon Hills health office.

Qualifying students must get their academic status verified by their counselor. They can do this by scheduling an appointment with their counselor. The application can be DOWNLOADED HERE, or your counselor can print it out during your appointment.

Do you have a Senior? Well, CHHS has a Booster Club so you can stay up to date on things and events about 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.
