Good evening parents and students, this is Mr. Kirk, Principal of  ­­­­­­­Los Osos High School. Last month, I contacted our families to share our support of students who worked with staff to plan a voluntary event on March 14th that included a moment of silence for the 17 victims who lost their lives in the Parkland tragedy and an opportunity for them to share their voices. During this event the students remained on campus – they were respectful -- and safe.

Recently, I’ve been approached by a few students who shared their interest in walking out of class this coming Friday and leaving school to protest gun violence. I shared with these students that we will always listen and work with them – and I’m thankful they came to me -- however, please understand I cannot condone students walking out of class and leaving school without supervision -- I am most interested in their safety and we cannot provide protection -- or any supervision for students who walk off campus for a non-school sanctioned event. Local law enforcement and some of our local elected officials agree that students would place themselves at risk if they leave school and therefore, they will be visiting our campus that morning to engage in neutral conversation with students and entertain questions they might have about the political process.

Again, I remain proud of students’ intentions to impact the world through their voice and action, but I cannot condone them leaving campus unsupervised to do so. Although students will not be prevented from leaving, I would ask that any student leaving campus -- be checked out or granted  permission by a parent or guardian -- as an unauthorized absence is considered a truancy.

Thank you as always for your partnership and for your continued support. Enjoy your evening.

Good evening Grizzly parents and students,

 

This is Mr. Kirk, Principal of  ­­­­­­Los Osos High School. Last Friday evening you received an all-call from our Superintendent, Dr. Holton, in response to a national effort by students to voice their concerns about school safety and gun violence on March 14, 2018… In preparation, I have worked with our staff and our students to determine activities that will occur during a voluntary walkout-to-a-designated-location-on-our-campus, this Wednesday at 10:00 a.m.

 

During this event, our students want to focus on a meaningful and productive demonstration, and I’m proud that during the planning process, they have respectfully agreed that…

  • the activities will remain peaceful and respectful…
  • And that students will not leave campus, -- rather they will remain in designated areas or routes where the planned activities will take place.

Specifically at our site, students  

  • participating will voluntarily walkout to the middle of the quad area on campus
  • The song created by students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas will play in the background
  • Student leaders will speak of the purpose for this event to honor the 17 victims
  • The names of the victims will be read out loud
  • Posters with the names of the victims will be hung for students to sign
  • Students who decide not to participate will remain in class with their teacher
  • And after 17 minutes, representing the 17 victims who lost their lives in Parkland, Florida -- students will return to their assigned class.

 

Please know, that as a District and school site, we will remain committed to protect our students and we are proud of their intentions to impact the world through their voice.

 

Thank you as always for your partnership and please refer to the District website at cjuhsd.net for the details of our Superintendent’s message or contact me to share your questions or concerns.

 

Have a good evening and I’ll see your student tomorrow…

 

Claws Up!

Congratulations on your student enrolling in one or more Advanced Placement courses at Los Osos High School. Taking the Advanced Placement exam is an important part of all AP courses. Los Osos desires that all students take AP exams for the AP classes that they have taken. Scoring well on an AP exam can often earn students college credit for their high school class, saving a significant amount on tuition.

The last day to register for exams is Tuesday, March 6.  The last day to pay for the tests is March 9.   If your child does not register nor pay by the deadlines, there will be no test ordered for them.   Students will register for exams online. This registration will take a few minutes and can be completed from any computer with internet access. You can access the registration website from the Los Osos School Loop homepage.  Students who receive free/reduced lunch will pay reduced rates on the exams pending online approval.

Thank you and have a good night.

Dear Grizzly Parents,


Each year, our district surveys thousands of stakeholders to gather input about the services we are providing families and students.  This information contributes to the development of our annual Local Control and Accountability Plan, a plan that outlines the services, supports, interventions, investments, and more that we make to provide the best possible education for all of our students.


Your voice matters and we value your feedback and input.


I ask that you take a few moments this evening to take this important survey.  You can find it by going to our website at www.cjuhsd.net, or our school’s homepage.  Please click the link to the LCAP Stakeholder Survey located at the upper left hand corner of the webpage.


The survey only takes a few minutes and is available in English, Spanish and Chinese for parents.


We are also gathering survey results from a separate survey for students currently being administered at school.  However, if your student has not participated in that, he or she may take it at home as well.  Our district office has worked to modify the language for students so they can better understand what is being asked in their survey. 


Again, we appreciate your participation in this important survey.


Claws Up!!

Grizzly Family,

Following the shooting incident in Parkland, Florida, schools across the country have received what they are calling “copy cat” threats or rumors of threats. Los Osos is one of these schools. Please know we work closely with local law enforcement this morning and they have ensured us that there is no substantiated threat and they will continue to investigate any threat, perceived threat, or rumor -- and that students and staff are safe to come to school today. As always, it is important for me to include you with information as I receive it – even if it is a rumor. Thank you, have a wonderful Friday. We will as well, as we are hosting our 1st annual Grizzly Career Day today!

Claws Up!

Good Evening,

 

This is Principal Kirk welcoming all of Grizzly Nation to the spring semester of 2018.  I hope everyone enjoyed a restful break with loved ones and look forward to a recharged return tomorrow.  Every start to a semester includes the need to balance schedules as a result of students completing semester make up courses or needing to retake a class for a semester.  These practices are in place to provide opportunities for students to be successful as well as appropriate class loads that support teacher effectiveness.  Due to this a small number of students may experience changes to their schedules.  Tomorrow morning, all students are to go to the cafeteria out door windows and locate their names in their grades level assigned area.  Next to their name will be their first period class.  Student are to report to that first period class where the teacher will provide students with their schedule with the rest of their classes.  If for any reason there is a problem with a schedule such as a period is missing, or you have duplicate classes, you may see your counselor during lunch time, the period of the class error or after school only.  Schedules will not be changed for reasons such as but not limited to a teacher preference or a switch to a different lunch. Please be aware that after school on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week, counselors will be in the theater foyer after school until 3:30. I am very excited for the all of our Grizzlies return as school will resume on Monday, January 8th at 8:05am. Let’s have a strong start to the spring semester and a great finish to the school year!!

Good afternoon, Grizzly Parents, This is Susan Malone, Assistant Principal of Achievement at Los Osos High School with two important messages for you.  

First, Tonight is part 5 of our Grizzly Parent Academy from 6:00-7:30 in the Lecture Hall.  

This week the counselors will present about Social Media and Teens.  Even if you have not attended the other sessions, you are welcome and encouraged to attend. They will cover material on social media, how you can monitor it, and how to support the appropriate use of this technology. 

Secondly, we are offering the PSAT/NMSQT on campus on Wednesday, October 25.  All of our sophomores are already registered for this test.   We still have approximately 100 tests available for purchase in the student store for $16 (fee waivers are available in the career center for qualifying students).  This test is particularly important for juniors to take as it qualifies them for National Merit Scholarship opportunities and gives access to an additional $160 million in scholarship opportunities. These tests will be sold until they are sold out or at the absolute latest Friday, October 20.

Thank you.  I hope you are able to take advantage of these two wonderful opportunities.

Students will sign in and out of sessions using their ID numbers, so we can verify attendance.  

Please take advantage of this opportunity for extra help from our wonderful Grizzly teachers! 

Thanks,

Grizzly Nation,
 
We are off to a smooth start to the 2017-18 school year.  As we look to continue to provide a safe campus for all of our stakeholders, we have examined the practice of dropping off items in our front office.  This is a practice that local law enforcement and our school resource officer strongly recommend all schools not allow.  This practice also causes a major disruption in our guidance and front office area on a daily basis.  Given the tragedies we have witnessed in schools across the country and the impact this practice has had on our campus, we have decided to take proactive steps to ensure a safe campus, therefore, beginning on Monday, September 4th, 2017 no items will be accepted for drop off in our front office.  This includes but is not limited to food, phones, clothing, money, school work/materials and equipment.  If your son or daughter forgot to bring their lunch, please have them stop by our cafeteria and we will be sure to provide food for the student.  Thank you in advance for your understanding, cooperation and continued support in working together to provide a safe campus for all of our Grizzlies!
 
Claws Up!!
