Parent Message 5-4-20


Dear Falcon Families,


I hope you and your families are continuing to do your best to stay healthy, safe and positive as we progress into week 2 of Distance Learning. I understand these are stressful times so we will continue to do our best to provide some structure and flexibility for your students as we establish our remote instructional practices. I want to thank families for their extensive support and encouragement. The strength of our community has shown with the percentage of students who have participated in some form during Distance Learning. During the week of April 20th, we had 99.7% of our students participate in some form during the week. Thank you all for embracing our new form of instruction and encouraging your students to participate. Here are the latest updates as of 5-4-20.


Distance Learning Grading

Laptop Pickup and Exchange Centers

Friday, May 1st was the last day Scripps Ranch High School was designated to be a pickup site for devices. Starting Monday 4th, 4 distribution sites will remain open for the duration of Distance Learning.  These sites are Clairemont, Hoover, Lincoln and San Diego High. Crawford will be open for 1 more week (May 4-8). If you have technical trouble or your student still needs a device, please go to one of these sites to pick up or exchange your laptop.

AP Information

The deadline (April 30th) has passed for students to obtain a refund on their AP tests. AP testing begins this month remotely. Please click this (Link) for the updated AP Schedule. These are the 3 main items students should review to prepare for test day: (1) AP Test Guide 2020, (2) AP Exam Day Student Checklist and (3) Explainer Videos. The AP Test Guide is quite long so I recommend to read it in small amounts over the course of a few days to more easily digest it. If you have questions, feel free to reach out to your AP teacher, myself as SRHS AP Coordinator, or our district AP coordinator, Rachel Amato (ramato@sandi.net) with questions. 


That is all the new information I have for today. Please stay safe and have a great week!
