    Graduation Information

    Rio Families and Senior Class,

    I wanted to update you on 2 critical items (seating and parking) for graduation.  As many of you are aware, we held graduation at a different location last year while Memorial Auditorium was undergoing renovations.  This year we are back to Memorial, but over break we found out we have items to deal with we have not had to deal with in the past.  The first is with seating.  Memorial has put in our contract we must issue tickets to families.  Based on our graduating class size and the seating in memorial, each senior will receive 8 tickets for admittance to graduation.

    I know this first item may cause you a bit of angst, but we will be doing our best to get everybody the tickets they need for graduation.  We are asking, if you do not need all 8 tickets alloted to you, please email bonnie.bjorgum@sanjuan.edu and let her know the number you can leave for us to redistribute by May 10, 2019.  If you believe you will need more than 8 tickets, please email brian.ginter@sanjuan.edu by May 10, 2019.  Thank you for your help in this matter.

    The next item is the ability for families to reserve parking for graduation.  You will be able to visit https://reserve.sacpark.org/ to reserve, for a fee, a parking space during the graduation ceremony. Our link is not posted as of yet, but should be in the next few days.

    Important Student Parking Information

    Rio Families,
    I am writing to you to inform you about a small issue we are having with student drivers at school. Obviously, Rio has a large number of students who drive and not all of them are able to find appropriate parking in the school parking lot.  If students are unable to find spaces in the school lot, they are to park on the street.  Students have been parking in fire lanes on campus where it is blocking traffic.  We had a safety inspection of the school by the fire marshal on Wednesday, December 13, 2018 and he informed us they will be checking the school site as part of their normal duties and these cars will either be towed or the officer along for the inspections will be issuing tickets.
    I want you to be aware so you can have a conversation with your child about parking vehicles in an appropriate parking spot.  We have been making annoncements to students about this and will continue to do so.  Your help would be appreciated.

    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
