SOME CLASSES MAY CHANGE FOR SOME STUDENTS

Dear students, parents and guardians,


As we near the end of the second week of school I would like to thank you for your support and look forward to our partnership in providing each of our students with a quality education in a welcoming and safe school environment.


Olympian has enrolled more students than expected and we will need to open more classes in order to accommodate all students. Consequently, some schedule changes are required to reflect our enrollment needs, ensure proper placement and to meet teacher contractual class sizes. Some student’s schedules must change to complete this balancing process to have a safe number of students in each class.

Respectfully,

Dianne Huslin
Principal

COVID, TRAFFIC AND SPORTS UPDATE

COVID
We are postponing our outdoor dance and any other social events that take place outside of the regular school day.
Based on the local health indicators and conversations with state and local health experts, it has been determined that at this time with the increased community COVID-19 case rates and the number of positive cases in schools, we cannot afford to hold events that may cause further issues. We are postponing outside the school day social events and will use the next four weeks to monitor progress. Further guidance will be provided soon.

TRAFFIC
Traffic has eased up a little as we continue efforts to address the issue from multiple angles.
· The City of Chula Vista has corrected a problem with the traffic signal on Magdalena and Peabody.
· We will open the yellow bus gate to offer an additional exit after the bus and majority of students have departed (usually about 15 minutes after school ends).
· We now offer extended library hours so that students that arrive early or are picked up late have a place to study or do homework. The library is open at 6:20 am Monday through Friday. It is also open Tuesday through Thursday after school until 3:45pm.

ATHLETICS FALL SPORTS TRYOUT Schedules have been posted. Athletic Clearance is required. Have your student athlete stop by the ASB during nutrition break, lunch or after school with completed forms

PARENT AHI FORM SENT HOME TODAY

A very important deadline that will impact Olympian High School’s funding next year and the services to your student(s) is coming up.  Our annual State and Federal funding is based on the number of Alternative Household Income (AHI) Forms that are returned and eligible each year. This determines how much funding our school will receive the following year to provide services and resources to support our students and their academic success. State and Federal funding supports after school and Saturday programs such as schoolwide tutoring and interventions, and Federal funding also provides supplemental classroom supplies, technology equipment, instructional software, and other instructional resources. 

Additional benefits for students include:

  • Waivers for high school college admission exams: SAT and ACT 
  • Fee-reduced college applications  
  • Fee-reduced high school exams: Advanced Placement (AP), Fee reduced from $119.00 to $10.00!!

In order for us to offer these services and resources to our students next year, the school must maintain eligible status to receive State and Federal funding. School eligibility status is dependent upon the number of Alternative Household forms submitted each year.

The 2021-2022 Alternative Household Income (AHI) Form consists of:

  • Number of people living in the home?
  • Total Monthly Income?
  • Parent Signature

We will distribute the forms in your child’s period 2 class and ask that you sign and have the student return it as soon as possible. To see or download the form please use the AHI Form Link

TARDY DETENTIONS START TOMORROW

The school had not started enforcement of tardy policy in the morning to give parents a chance to adjust to the school schedule. Students late to school can make up tardies by attending lunch detention for 15 minutes. Please review the following excerpt from the Student/Parent handbook:

TARDY POLICY AND GRADES:
Tardies and unexcused absences are a major disruption to the learning environment; they interrupt the instruction and distract the learning of other students. Students will be responsible for being on time to all classes. Tardy(s) and unexcused absences will have a negative effect on the citizenship grade. The policy below will be used by teachers school-wide. In each grading period tardy(s) will have the following consequences:

1st tardy – does not impact your citizenship grade

2nd tardy – results in a “C” in citizenship 

3rd tardy – results in an “F’ in citizenship (referral to counselor)

In each subsequent grading period all students will be given a “fresh start” if the absences or tardies have been cleared through Saturday School or Detention.  Please note that once a semester is completed, citizenship grades will not be retroactively changed. We encourage all parents to check the syllabus for the class or contact the teacher directly for concerns about tardies and their effect on grades.

TRAFFIC INFORMATION FROM THE PRINCIPAL

Unprecedented times…unprecedented traffic…

We are all amazed at the enthusiasm with which students returned to school this year and are so grateful that our families chose Olympian. However, with this eagerness came an unprecedented number of vehicles attempting to drop off students within our gates. While in years past traffic would begin after 7 am, it now backs up as early as 6:30 am.

We are working with CVPD and district staff to determine areas of need in our community to help improve the flow of traffic.

I am encouraging our families to help ease the number of vehicles entering the parking lot as I am sure that drivers do not wish to spend their morning waiting behind cars backed up at lights.

  1. Encourage walking or biking to school if possible. If it is too far to walk, consider dropping off students a few blocks away from school.
  2. Avoid traffic. The roads are usually the busiest just before and shortly after the school starts. If you are flexible with your time, consider leaving home very early or later than you are used to, so you can avoid the busiest time on the road.
  3. Be alert. Back to school means sharing the streets with young pedestrians. Children are often unpredictable, so pay extra attention when driving in the school areas, near playgrounds & parks, and in residential areas. Don’t forget to watch out for pedestrians when parking as well.

Also, parents/Guardians, just a friendly reminder that we have a new traffic pattern at the exit. The LEFT lane is for going left on Magdalena or straight on Santa Luna. The RIGHT lane is for going right ONLY on Magdalena. Please pay attention to the signs and select your lane appropriately.

Additionally, improvements have been made to the parking lot over the past year. The two sides of the parking lot are now connected so there are two exits available, one at the traffic signal and one through the student parking lot that exits to northbound Magdalena.

SNAKE SAFETY

This is a reminder that our school is located near many forms of wildlife. Today we observed a rattlesnake on campus. Please be aware of your surroundings and report any snake sightings to office staff. Thank you and be safe!

FREE SCHOOL LUNCH FOR ALL STUDENTS

The school district is providing lunch for all students, all they do is enter their school ID number.

APPROPRIATE DRESS FOR SCHOOL

Administration and staff will be meeting with students about Olympian High expectations. We ask parents to review the attire section of the Student Handbook (link) with their student(s).
