Mr Mitchell // Principal
"I wanted to thank all of you for being so amazing as we come back to school this year. It means a lot to me to hear and see our Grizzly pride back on our campus. 

One of the things I appreciate about us is that we treat and respect each other as family. We care about each other. With that in mind, I’d like to ask that everyone Adults and Students, remember to always wear a mask indoors. We are doing this for each other, you may be vaccinated, but your fellow Grizzly isn’t. Let’s continue to care for one another. You’re about to hear from our assistant principals who will be giving you information about.:

Our APs will be discussing You’ll get info on:

  • How our dress code supports you and our learning environment as well as reflects you and your future self.

  • How showing up on time sets you up for success in your classes and builds positive habits. 

  • How asking for help is a sign of determination and not a sign of weakness and how you can ask for help with our counseling staff. 

  • How to conduct yourself on campus, connect with adults, and get involved with your grizzly community.

It is important for us to set expectations and then share them, so that you know what grizzlies stand for and how we support you to become the best grizzly that you can be.

“Take Pride: being punctual shows you care and that its important to you”

Be on Time!  This means you are in the room and ready to learn when the bell rings.  If you are tardy to class you will need a pass.  Parents will be notified when you are tardy or absent. Too many tardies or absences will result in a conference with administration to determine the best method to support you in your education.

Mr Sirimanne // Assistant Principal (Em-Li)

Take pride in your community and with fellow grizzlies.

We want everyone to feel safe and welcomed at Mission Hills. And together we make that happen. If you see something that needs to be addressed please speak to an adult about your concerns.  Do not bring any object or substance to campus that is illegal or dangerous. In an effort to keep everyone safe please know that your car, locker, and backpacks can be searched at any time. 

Bring I.D.’s as they help with tardies, finance, and identifying yourself to personnel. For safety reasons, while on Mission Hills campu, at any time, any student or individual needs to identify themselves to staff members when asked.

ID make up day is Monday September 20th in Redwood Hall lobby.

Confrontation/Fights No bullying, harassment, intimidation, and/ or verbal or physical altercations will be tolerated on our campus. To prevent these situations from happening please  notify a staff member, like telling one of the AP or coming down to our office. We can speak to individuals or talk through strategies on how to avoid a possible fight or confrontation. 

Why? The key to success is to defuse the situation before it escalates. Seek help from an adult so that no one gets in trouble and it helps keep us all safe. 

If not, then there will be consequences as far as involving law enforcements, suspensions, or possibly expulsion.

Phones and Electronic Devices
MH is not responsible for phone or electronic theft. Bring at your own risk. If you do bring your phone make sure that you are using them at the appropriate times, like not during class. Make sure that you are not taking photos or videos or others without permission and that you are not posting anything that would be considered inappropriate or not represent you or mh in the best of light. In other words, use your tech for good and use it to share, highlight, support, and connect.
