Dear Viking Family,

 

Greetings from Yearbook. We are contacting you to let you know about a particular situation this year that may affect you. We have an unusually small number of yearbooks available for purchase this year – approximately fifty. It is very likely that some students will not be able to purchase a yearbook who would like one.

 

In the past, we have always sold yearbooks on a first come, first served basis, and we have never had to say no to anyone. Given our situation this year, we have decided to preferentially offer the available yearbooks to seniors first. During distribution on Friday, we will take the names of any seniors who want to purchase a yearbook. If there are more seniors than we have books available, we will conduct a simple lottery to determine the order. We will post the names of those chosen by Tuesday morning, and those selected will be able to purchase their books on Tuesday for $100 cash only, at lunch or after school from the business office. If they do not purchase their books on Tuesday, they will forfeit their claim. Any books still remaining will be offered to all students first come, first served, on Wednesday at lunch and afterschool.

 

Students who still wish to purchase a yearbook have the option of doing so. Late book sales will be online at yearbookforever.com, for $110 plus a $2 processing fee. Books must be ordered by June 9th, and they will be mailed to you approximately by late June.

 

In this fashion, all students who want a yearbook will still be able to purchase one, but not everybody who wants one will have one during Finals Week. For those of you who have purchased a book in advance, we thank you. For those of you who would like to purchase one, you still can – it just won’t be as timely, and it will cost a bit more. We hope that you will take advantage of the opportunity to do so.

 

In the future, we encourage all Vikings to purchase their yearbooks as early in the year as possible. This guarantees that you will receive a book, saves you money, and eliminates the anxiety and inconvenience of end-of-the-year sales.

 

Sincerely,

 

Mr. Steve Forrest

Yearbook Adviser

Yearbook Update

 

The final sales list for the yearbook is now posted here and in the window of room 14. If you have bought a book, please make sure your name is on the list. If your name has been omitted, please notify Mr. Forrest as soon as possible, preferably with proof of purchase, date purchased, etc., so it can be corrected.

 

If your name is not on the list, you will not receive a yearbook at distribution. Yearbooks will be distributed only to those people whose name is on the list. Any disputes will be resolved during finals week, but we can manage distribution only on Friday, May 26. Please resolve any issues ahead of time.

 

Yearbooks will be distributed from the South Gym immediately after 6th period. No yearbooks will be released in advance. Please have photo ID with you. You may not pick up someone else’s yearbook without a signed note from them. No books will be sold on distribution day. Books will be sold through the business office on a first come, first served basis during finals week, at lunch and after school, for $100 cash only. Supplies are limited, and we cannot guarantee availability. You may also pick up your yearbook during finals week if your name is on the list.

 

Thanks from the Yearbook team.

Montgomery Cyber High will end May 24 for this school year. Seniors, you will need to take all final tests by this date to ensure that credits earned are available to meet graduation requirements. Students in grades 9-11 need to finish all classes before May 24 because there is no guarantee Cyber High will be offered during the next school year. Finish your credits by May 24. 

 

The Computer Lab is open Tuesdays and Wednesdays 3:15 to 4:45 for Cyber High and Mr. Baglien is there to assist you. Final tests take place in the Computer Lab; you cannot test on your own.  Special arrangements to test at another time, outside of the Computer Lab days and hours, must be made with Mr. Baglien individually. You must provide a legitimate reason for why you need to test at an alternative time. There are eight weeks left to complete your courses; this is more than enough time if you attend weekly. After May 24 Cyber High will end. If you do not complete courses by then, there will be no extension granted.

California Law and Santa Rosa City Schools' (SRCS) Board Policy provides an opportunity for parents/guardians to request that their student attend a school in an area other than the area in which they live. Parents may request a school within the Santa Rosa City schools only, this is called the "Open Enrollment" proces.

 

The Santa Rosa City School District provides opportunities for parents and students who reside in the SRCS Elementary and Secondary District to select a school of choice outside their attendance area as school capacity permits.

 

Go to the SRCS Website for more information.

 

Who Must Apply?
  • ​If you are at your school of residence and plan to attend your next school ( elementary to middle school or middle school to high school) YOU DO NOT HAVE TO DO ANYTHING.
  • If your child is currently a 6th grader or an 8th grader and you are NOT at your school of residence and next school year (2017-2018) you wish to go to a school that is NOT your school of residence, You must apply to Open Enrollment.
  •  If you are another grade and wish to change from your current school to another school that is NOT your school of residency, your must apply to Open Enrollment
  • If you are on an Interdistrict Permit (from a district NOT SRCS) and you are planning to stay at your current school, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO DO ANYTHING.
  • If you are on an Interdistrict Permit (from a district NOT SRCS) and you are changing schools, ( elementary to middle school or middle school to high school) you must apply for a NEW Interdistrict Permit for your next school. There is not automatic rollover from elementary to middle or middle to high. YOU MUST APPLY FOR A NEW INTERDISTRICT PERMIT, NOT OPEN ENROLLMENT. Apply for an Interdistrict permit here: ______________
APPLICATIONS Applications are only accepted online. If you have no access to a computer with Internet connection at home or any other readily available place (public libraries, Internet cafés, etc.) you are welcome to use the computer in the lobby of the Student And Family Engagement Office (SAFE)  located at 211 Ridgway Avenue (528-5137).
DATES Open Enrollment is available on line from 12:00 a.m. (0:00) October 1 through 12:00 a.m. (0:00) on November 18 on the Santa Rosa City Schools’ (SRCS) website. After you submit your application on the SRCS website, please be sure to print the confirmation page. Families will be notified by December 1 and families must come into the school to register by the Friday before Winter Break or they will lose the spot.
SPACE If space is available at your selected school, approval will be granted. If there is not space available, your student's name will be placed on a waiting list based on a random and unbiased lottery (not on a first-come basis).
REQUIREMENTS

Only families that are already residents of Santa Rosa City Schools may submit application under "Open Enrollment" . Families outside the SRCS boundaries will submit an "Interdistrict Permit". See _________ for that process.

Transportation to the new school is the responsibility of the parent or guardian. This includes Special Education. If your request is approved, your student may give up the right to return to his/her previous school until the next open enrollment period.

  • If you are accepted at an Elementary School, you will re-apply for Middle School.
  • If you are accepted at a Middle School, you will re-apply for High School
QUESTIONS If you have questions, or if you need more information call Student And Family Engagement Office (SAFE) at 528-5137.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
  • Students who live in the attendance area have priority in attending their home school. The District maintains a street grid with addresses for purposes of determining the home school.
  • The SRCS Board of Education establishes the optimal capacity of each school.
  • If more requests to attend a school are received than there are openings, the District will use a random and unbiased lottery to fill the openings and establish a waiting list.
  • If the request for a new school is approved, the student cannot return to the home school until the next Open Enrollment period.
  • Transportation to the new school is not provided.
  • Remember, the waiting lists are done by lottery, not by the date and time the application is submitted.
  • A student placed in any school requested through open enrollment relinquishes his/her right to attendance area school for the remainder of that school year. To return to his/her attendance area school, the student must relinquish his/her open enrollment status in writing to the Child Welfare and Attendance Office.

Welcome back to the 2016-2017 school year. The new year is exciting for all of us. We are looking forward to reconnecting with our previous students and getting to know our new ones. The beginning of the school year is the busiest time for us so it may take a bit longer than usual to return calls or respond to your student's requests. Our priority is registering new students. Just a reminder, we do not change schedules for teacher preference, classes because of sports or to be in or not in a class with a particular student. Many of the changes are a result of working to create a balanced schedule. What this means is that some teachers have classes that are too full, and we need to move students into a smaller class. Students quickly form attachments to their schedules and usually have difficulty with this type of change. We select students randomly to move so that it is fair to all. We appreciate everyone's patience with us during this hectic period. The final day to for class changes is Friday, September 2.
