    Rio Familes, 
     
     
    As we have started the year many of you can see construction is winding down and should be complete in the next few weeks.  The campus landscape has been transformed over the past few weeks and it looks very good.  Inside the classrooms, students have started their academic work for the year and we continue to work with the district to get the staffing we need to lower class sizes. The district has already given us 1 FTE that has been posted and we will be receiving more today to post.  The highest need areas are science, Spanish, PE, and English.  We will be getting help for those classes in that order.  Again, this will all be worked on within the first 20 days of school, so schedule changes will happen in that time.  As of Friday we have a student count of 1840, which at this point, is 112 students overstaffed.  We will continue to monitor student enrollment through the first 20 days of school in our staffing process.
     
    Please understand, until we receive staffing, the only scheduling changes that should be happening are holes in schedules and level changes.  All other changes will bee made once staffing is in place to limit disruptions of instruction.

    Safety
     
    Please drive carefully in the parking lot as students will be walking through the lot throughout the day. Please follow all traffic signs and arrows to make sure we have a smooth drop-off and pick-up procedure before and after school.  It is also important that we follow all trafic laws on American River Drive, as accidents do happen within our drop-off and pick-up procedures.
     
     
    Construction Update 
     
    Construction on the PAC will be coming to and end during the fist month of school, but there will be minimal activity to finish up any puch list items throughout the first semester.  Construction will begin again in late fall through September of 2018 to finish our softball complex, synthetic track and field, and solar panals on the gymnasium roofs.
