Come to PTSA meeting tonight, where Principal Ginter is always in attendance or come to an upcoming scheduled meeting for this:

SJUSD had instituted new graduation requirements for the Class of 2023. In order to accommodate these requirements Rio Americano will be considering a schedule change for next year ultimately decided by teachers that will be one of the following:

  • 7-8 Period Day
  • Block Schedule
  • Stays Same

However, parent and student input is valued and would like to be passed on to teachers for consideration. Principal Ginter will be holding 2 more Parent/Student Schedule Discussion Meetings on October 24 and on Nov. 28 in case you missed the first one. They will start at 6pm in the PAC.
