Principal's Message

Mustang Families,

I hope you had a wonderful Labor Day weekend. I wanted to inform you that student IDs are now available for purchase through the student store. Additionally, tickets for the upcoming welcome back dance, with a USA theme, are now on sale. Make sure to wear red, white, and blue to the event. You can get your tickets at the THHS store.

In other news, please check the guidance section for the posted class add and level down dates. Also, don't forget to participate in our College and Career Clothing days on Wednesdays and wear your Trabuco gear on Thursdays.

I am looking forward to a wonderful week ahead.

Ms. Alicia Foulk

Now that we are beginning the third full week of school, we wanted to remind students and parents of the important deadlines for schedule changes.  

Important Deadlines

Fall Semester

Last day to ADD a class (15th day)

Last day to LEVEL UP (15th day)

Last day to DROP* a class (30th day)

Last day to LEVEL DOWN (30th day)

Friday Sept 1, 2023

Friday Sept 1, 2023

Tuesday Sept 26, 2023

Tuesday Sept 26, 202

*Dropping a class: note that 9th-11th grade students must have at least 6 classes, and 12th grade students must have at least 5 classes. Therefore, if a student has more than the minimum number of classes, then they can drop a class up to the 30th day of the semester. However, if a student has the minimum number of classes, then they cannot drop a class after the 15th day of the semester because they’d have to replace it by adding another class to stay at the minimum, and the last day to add is the 15th day of the semester.  

  1. Requests for teacher changes or period changes will not be accommodated.  
  2. Students must always maintain the minimum number of classes required for their grade level:  (Six classes for grades 9th, 10th, and 11th; Five classes for grade 12th).  
  3. Classes dropped after the drop class deadline will receive grade in progress and partial credit on their permanent record.  
  4.  Level up or down changes may be made within the specified deadlines of each semester. A parent and teacher conference is recommended. Changes must be made within the same subject area.  
  5. A coach’s signature on the Athletic Schedule form is required to add or drop an athletic sport.  
  6. Grades will transfer from the original class to the new class based on department standards.  
  7. Requesting schedule changes in a core class such as English, math, science, social science, and world language and/or a college prep visual performing art may affect UC/CSU A-G, NCAA and/or private/out of state university college admission requirements. Students and parents should review the admission criteria for the colleges they plan to apply to and verify that this change will not negatively impact admissions status. 

The Guidance Office is open from 7:30 am - 4 pm. Students should come to teh guidance office before school, at snack or lunch, or after school. Students should not come to guidance office during class or flex time unless in crisis.


The Digital PSAT
