    The 2021 Rio Americano yearbook will capture the memories of a year you won't want to forget. We want students and parents to send us photos to hjeshare.com (school code 4540). Send story ideas to rioyearbook2021@gmail.com. And purchase books and ads at yearbookordercenter.com (school code 7547). We have lowered the price of ads to make them more affordable to more families; additional discounts are available for senior families. Contact Mike Mahoney at mmahoney@sanjuan.edu.

    Requesting Transcripts- All students will need to create an account in Parchment to request transcripts. Transcripts are not mailed home at the end of each semester. If you need to request your transcript to be mailed home or to a college, university, NCAA, military installation, etc., please CLICK HERE or contact Registrar Ms. Smith at alluria.smith@sanjuan.edu

    The Virtual Career Fair is coming October 26-28th. There will be community members sharing insight into their professions ranging from a physician, lobbyist, contractor, interior designer and more! Check out the Virtual Career Event flyer on the Counseling webpage for more details!

    If you’re unable to attend class remember to notify the attendance office!
