Welcome to the New School Year!
We are very excited to welcome some new staff members to our campus this year: Mr. Joshua Thompson and Ms. Rebekah Sluss, Science; Ed Grant, Spanish; Ms. Viola Washburn, Counseling Intern; Ms. Alma Mendoza, Native American Advisor; and Ms. Laura Singleton, GEAR UP Counselor;. We also have some staff that have changed positions and/or programs: Mr. Kevin Velarde moves to Yreka High School full-time as the Assistant Principal and Athletic Director (extension 113); Mr. Mark O'Connor moves to Mathematics; and Mr. Ken Dysert moves to Yreka Options.
The school website continues to be the most up-to-date place to check for breaking school news....the school website address is www.yuhsd.net. You will find the school calendar, the daily bulletin, and information regarding teachers, staff, and other activities happening at Yreka High School. Newsletters come out once a month with the most up to date information we have; however, our web page is often updated to reflect changes. If you haven’t had a chance to check it out lately, please do so, you may be pleasantly surprised.
We will continue the operation of the Aeries Parent Access program, and encourage all parents and guardians to sign up for access. This web based program gives parents the opportunity to access their Student's information, grades, and attendance.
As usual, the beginning of the school year is a busy time. If you have any questions or concerns, we invite you to contact us.
We look forward to seeing our Freshman on Friday August 16th and all of our students on Monday August 19th. Please mark your calendars for Back to School Night on September 4th, until then enjoy what’s left of the summer!
Marie Caldwell, Principal
