Principal's Message

Mustang Families,

Please take some time today to review all the information on the newsletter site. Today is Monday, March 25, 2024.

Information was sent out to Seniors and their families last week regarding end of year expectations, as well as upcoming Senior events. We are looking forward to celebrating the class of 2024!

I hope you are able to join us for some of our performing arts groups this week. There is a music area concert Wednesday night (performances at 6 and 7 pm in our gym), as well as drama’s One Acts on Wednesday and Thursday at 7 pm in the theater.

Our Spring athletics are in full swing. The weather has resulted in quite a few cancellations and rescheduled contests, but our athletes are enjoying quite a few successes. We appreciate the flexibility and patience of our students and families while we work around our unusually wet weather.

Next week is Spring Break. All offices will be closed from this Friday afternoon until Monday April 8th.

We invite you to scroll through this page for highlights, student recognitions, and more!

Ms. Alicia Foulk

All seniors must meet all SVUSD graduation requirements in order to participate in the Graduation Ceremony.  I encourage you to monitor your senior’s grades carefully during this important part of the school year.  Any failure of a required course will automatically prevent a student from participating in the Graduation Ceremony.

Seniors must follow all school policies up through and including graduation.  All financial and disciplinary obligations, as well as attendance at all mandatory graduation practices, must be fulfilled or participation in senior activities including the Graduation Ceremony, will be jeopardized.

Demerit Recovery and Graduation

In order to avoid jeopardizing participation in senior activities and the Graduation Ceremony, all senior students must have resolved all discipline consequences.  If there are any questions regarding behavior contracts or any outstanding discipline consequences, students should follow up with an Assistant Principal of Supervision. Each hour of discipline consequences equals 1 demerit.  Any senior student with demerits on their record must serve all assigned hours until their demerits equal ZERO (0) before they will be allowed to attend Prom, participate in any senior activities, or Graduation Ceremony.  A schedule of assigned hours of discipline consequences along with the intended days to serve must be arranged with the Supervision Office immediately. 

Senior Pranks

Please note this word of caution about “senior pranks.”  Some of our students in the past without any disciplinary history have participated in a senior prank that resulted in lost opportunities and privileges.  There is no such thing as a safe senior prank. Consequences could include loss of senior activities and may jeopardize participation in the Graduation Ceremony.  If you become aware of such a plan, please inform the school and do not allow your senior to participate.  Students should never be on school grounds outside of school hours for any reason other than official school business or activities. 

Please help your senior make good choices to ensure their participation in all senior activities and the Graduation Ceremony.

 Suspensions and Expulsions

Be advised that the Saddleback Valley Unified School District has a strict policy against the use or possession of drugs, alcohol, and weapons, and any other expellable offenses outlined by the California Education Code.  Please note that if a student commits ANY expellable offense and is recommended for expulsion, they will be excluded from Prom, ALL senior activities, extra-curricular activities, and the Graduation Ceremony during the expulsion.  Any student that is suspended and/or placed on a behavior contract for violations such as drug/alcohol possession or use, bullying or harassment, committing an obscene act, and possession of a weapon or dangerous object, within the last 45 days of school will not be able to attend prom, senior activities, and may be excluded from the Graduation Ceremony. 

Behavior Expectations for the Graduation Ceremony

Students attempting to disrupt the integrity and grace of the Graduation Ceremony will be removed during the ceremony immediately.

Your support in discussing the importance of maintaining appropriate behavior through the end of the year as well as the severity of consequences for violating our behavior expectations is greatly appreciated and can ensure a positive experience during this exciting time for your family. 

We want to ensure that all of our graduating seniors have the memorable experience of participating in their High School Graduation and your support is greatly appreciated. 

I look forward to seeing you at graduation on May 30th.

City of Mission Viejo Committee Opportunity

The City of Mission Viejo is seeking adult and student members for our Community of Character Committee.

The Committee helps to plan activities and outreach to promote good character in our schools and community at City events and through various programs. The Committee offers opportunities for service, leadership, event planning, public speaking, and involvement for our teen members.  This opportunity provides a fun way for students in 7th grade through 12th grade to strengthen their high school resumes, make a difference in their community, and fulfill their service hours requirements! The Mission Viejo Character Committee meets the first and third Tuesday evenings of each month from 5:00 to 6:00 in the Saddleback Room at City Hall.
