Dear Falcon Families,

We made it! Wow, it has been a long and, to say the least, difficult year. I can’t thank you all enough for your support and for your willingness to be a partner with us as we did our best to make this school year as successful as it could be. Brighter days are definitely ahead! My hope for everyone is to have a much needed, quiet and relaxing summer. This will be my last Sunday update of the school year. Just like I did last summer, I will share out weekly updates as needed over the summer. As a reminder, 9th and 10th grade students are scheduled to return their textbooks this coming week. For seniors, please remember to drop off your Chromebook on the 14th and pick up your diploma on the 15th. For all students, refer to the “end of the year activities” link to see all important events for these last 2 days of school. Here are the final updates for the 2020-21 school year.

Counseling Updates

Summer Availability

Along with our students and teachers, counselors will also be enjoying a much needed summer break. Therefore, we will not be available to respond to emails or answer phone messages left over the summer. If you have any questions or concerns after the school year has ended, please reach out to your counselor when we come back at the end of August. We look forward to coming back in the fall, refreshed to start the new school year and support our students! We wish you a relaxing summer!

Course Request Changes for 2021-22 school year

Students were given an opportunity to see their course requests for next year in their PowerSchool account and request changes on a google form that was due on June 6th. All submitted forms will be reviewed by counseling and changes will be made if the student meets the prerequisites, there is room in the class and it fits in their schedule. Changes made will be confirmed at Kick-off. All elective change requests will be accepted on a different form during Kick-off. Counselors will not be able to accept course change requests via email.

Summer School 2021

Summer school starts on June 21st. If you already submitted a summer school application, the district and/or summer school site will reach out to let your student know they have been signed up for summer school, the location and start time by June 18th. If you have questions about your student’s enrollment, you will need to contact the summer school site directly for information. If your student has not signed up for summer school yet, they should show up on the first day of summer school to see if they can be added. The onsite summer school sites are: Clairemont, Hoover, Kearny, La Jolla, Lincoln, Madison, Mira Mesa, Mission Bay, Morse, Patrick Henry, Serra, University City. Summer school sites will start at 8:30 A.M. or 9:00 A.M., so we would recommend showing up extra early to get added. For information about summer school you can visit the SRHS counseling website summer school page.

Summer Enrichment Opportunities.

Summer enrichment programming is being offered by the district’s VAPA, CCTE, and community partners throughout June, July, and August 2021. Enrichment opportunities will include sports camps, STEAM-based experiences, access to UCSD Extension courses, and UC Scout online AP courses. There is limited space in the college and AP courses. All enrichment options will be available for enrollment on the Level Up SD website https://levelupsandiego.org/

Senior Students – Final Transcript Request

Now is the time for students to request a Final Transcript if they are attending college next year. Students must complete this Final Transcript Request Form to have their transcript sent to the college of their choice. Final Transcripts should NOT be requested on Naviance. Additional information about transcripts can be found on the Transcript Request Page on the Counseling Website.

That’s it for this school year. Thank you all again for your support and have a wonderful summer.
