Principal's Message

Mr. Cypher
Dear Los Osos High School Students, Parents, and Guardians,  
 
I hope that you have had a chance to spend some quality time together with family and friends through these summer months. We have continued with a very robust summer school and continue to make history with the Chaffey District offering for the first time ever three sessions for summer learning. Many of our Grizzlies have remediated their grades from the past two school years during this summer school; I am very proud of these Grizzlies as they continue to get themselves back on track for Graduation and/or A-G completion.  Our goal is to get every Grizzly affected academically by the pandemic back on track and we will continue to offer remediation classes throughout the 2022-2023 school year. If you have questions about these opportunities, you may speak with a counselor or an assistant principal for more details.   
 
The first day of the 2022-2023 school year will be Wednesday, August 10th. We look forward to fully welcoming students back and we will continue with in-person instruction this fall. The District remains committed to ensuring the safety of our students and staff and will continue to monitor and adapt to health regulations from the state as well as the county. In-person instruction has proven to serve our students best, but we will provide alternatives to in-person instruction for those students who may need to remain in a virtual learning setting.  If you desire to discuss an alternative educational program for your student, please contact the school at 909-477-6900 this summer.   
 
All schools in the Chaffey Joint Union High School District will continue with the start time of 8:30 a.m. and concluding at 3:20 p.m. Friday hours will continue to be from 9:30 a.m. - 3:20 p.m. These start times are part of the legally-mandated late start for California high schools in 2022. Our bell schedule is attached and features a traditional 6-period day, with expanded 0 and 7-period opportunities for students who need additional access to academic courses.  
 
To our Seniors, the Class of 2023, your year is here!  The past three years have been a roller coaster the likes of which the world has never seen, yet you have made it this far and your year is finally here! Take a quick moment and savior it, and then realize that Hard Work Pays Off and your legacy is still ahead of you! So continue to Work Hard, Inspire Others, Lead with Integrity and Dream Big! And finally, welcome to the class of 2027! We look forward to welcoming you to Grizzlyland and the seeing the mark and impact you will make on Los Osos.
