Disneyland Trip, May 14-15, 2022
Kevin: This is a non-school event.  It is an outside agency running the trip for other schools as well.  The company arranges chaperones.  Since it is loosely associated with us I’m going to share the details with the district.  I understand it is full at this point and there is a waiting list. 

 

Bridgit:  According to the student’s Instagram posting it is $425 covers transportation, Disneyland, chaperones and all the 150 spots are full.    To get on wait list it is a $75 non-refundable deposit.  

 

QUESTIONS SUBMITTED:  

 

1  Will there be a senior ball? Yes. April 30 in SF.

 

If a student is not attending Senior Picnic is there school?  Expected to be at school.  Teachers are working and classes will be in session. 

 

3  Senior Cut Days:   Never sanctioned although we can’t control the student’s social media.  It does mess things up according to teachers.  It is never coordinated among all students so random dates pop up in friend groups.  Parents need to encourage students to attend school.

 

How to order Graduation Gowns: We have a Josten’s Cap and Gown order date on October 11. 

 

Student Parking/Traffic: Busses are late often and the long commute time is unsustainable. How can we fix this?   

Kevin:   Met with Traffix yesterday and attending meeting next week to brainstorm.  It helps to define the problem and what parts we can solve.   There are 2 less busses and less seats offered.  In addition, there is a more condensed traffic pattern with similar drop off times by both LC/MV AND on Odd block days there is no A period buffer.  Solutions?  Considering earlier drop off by bus service.  Limit horseshoe to only bus traffic.  

 

6  Is Parking being enforced?    Yes it Is being enforced. 

Kevin:  The obstacles we are seeing to permits is that Students need to complete Start Smart Course.  It is a district requirement and non compliance is a barrier to getting a parking pass.   No carpool spots so more regular parking spots are available. 

 

7  Can we get a moveable student parking pass?  Dr A to look into it. 

 

8- Can we borrow grad gowns ?   The process is offered by Jostens and on same form as to purchase.

 

9  Where can students pick up ASB shirts?  Tommy:   The shirts have been distributed several times as arranged by students.  Leadership will check inventory and please look for info in bulletin. 

 

10 When will Homecoming Dance tickets be on sale?    Tommy:  by Monday, 9/13

 

11 Can guests attend Homecoming Dance?    Kevin:  No.  This is MV students only because it is an opportunity for all students to attend.  No guests, semi-formal, well attended, mask optional.  In the Commons outside.  

 

12 Is the Senior Gold Card still available?  Jodi:  No because some of the events have passed.  All events will be offered separately as the year progresses.  The Senior Gold Card includes yearbook and most on campus events except Senior Ball and Grad Night.  Hurricane Harbor for example, is part of the package but was also offered separately.
