Thanks to some hard work from staff and student workers, your student packets are in the mail. You do not need to print these pages, you will receive them in the mail.
Please carefully go over all items. In order to save paper and costs, you will be asked to read some items that are linked to our website. You will see these listed on the green "Signature Page". Of course if you do not have access to a computer, we will be happy to print a copy for you.
I have attached copies of the items that you must return to the school in order to pick up your school schedule. Again, you do not need to print these, they are included as a reference for you.
You will need to return:
1. the blue Emergency Card completely filled out and signed by your parent/guardian
2. the green Signature Page completely filled out and signed by you and your parent, showing that you have gone over all of the necessary information
3. the cream McKinney Vento survey
4. the salmon Nurse Alert Form
5. the picture form, if buying pictures
I have also included information about Freshman Orientation, Senior mandatory meeting, and Schedule Pickup/ID pictures
While you do not have to purchase pictures, each student MUST have their ID picture taken as they are to have it with them at all times on campus.
Thanks, and see you soon

Effective July 1, 2016, students entering kindergarten or 7th grade (known as “vaccination checkpoints”) must be vaccinated and can no longer rely on a personal belief exemption (“PBE”). Students who have a PBE may be “grandfathered in” if they are not entering kindergarten or 7th grade. However, once a student rises to the 7th grade, that PBE will no longer be accepted. There are generally two exceptions to the vaccination requirement: (1) obtaining a medical waiver from a doctor or (2) enrolling the student in independent study or homeschool (non-classroom based instruction). Districts should ensure that students entering kindergarten or 7th grade on or after July 1 show proof of current vaccinations.
However, the law does not prohibit students from accessing special education or related services required by their individualized education program. Some school districts have constructively exempted special education students from the vaccination requirement since the districts are legally mandated to provide services to students who qualify for special education and related services, and failure to do so could leave the district open to legal challenge. However, other districts have insisted all students, including those receiving special education services, be vaccinated. The State or CDE has yet to clarify the intent of SB 277 regarding students receiving special education services.

The Sacramento Bee selected River City junior Amaryssa Medina to their First Team All-Metro Softball team in a story published on Sunday, June 12. Amaryssa was selected as a utility player, attesting to the fact that she was instrumental to the team on the pitcher's mound, as a hitter at the plate, and as a fielder at first base. Congratulations Amaryssa!
