A Message from Our Principal

Dear Rio Rico Community,

We are currently facing a unique time with the recent progression of COVID-19. For the safety of our students, staff, and families, the state has closed school until the end of the 2019-2020 school year. As a Hawk family, we need to stick together as we protect our nest.

As a proud Rio Rico High School community, we will SOAR pass the current adversity.

Students will be provided learning opportunities during the school closure. As a school, we are determined to provide the best learning experience for our students, regardless of the current situation. Our dedicated teachers will engage with students via Google Classroom, their school emails, and packet handouts, reaching all of our students.

Opportunity! During this time, we will take the opportunity to learn from the challenge presented and do what is best for our students. The opportunity to become a stronger community will also present itself as #SCV35 is still serving our students lunch and engaging in the motto #closednotclosed!

Above the bar! As a school community we will not only meet the challenge presented before us but exceed expectations, #Abovethebar!

Responsible! With every decision made, we will be responsible and do what is best for our students, staff, and school community. As the principal, I pledge to be responsible during this crucial time.

I miss our students! Thank you for your continued trust and support as we navigate through this.

Don't forget to follow us on Facebook, Livestream, and Twitter to see the latest happenings around campus.

Go, Hawks!

Your Dedicated Principal,

Hector Estrada

Un mensaje de nuestro director

Querida comunidad de Río Rico:

Actualmente nos enfrentamos a un momento único con la reciente progresión de COVID-19. Para la seguridad de nuestros estudiantes, el personal y las familias, el estado ha cerrado la escuela hasta el 10 de abril de 2020. Como familia Hawk, debemos mantenernos unidos
mientras protegemos nuestro NIDO.

Como una orgullosa comunidad de la Escuela Secundaria de Río Rico, navegaremos sobre toda esta actual adversidad.

Los estudiantes recibirán oportunidades de aprendizaje durante el cierre de la escuela. Como escuela, estamos decididos a proporcionar la MEJOR experiencia de aprendizaje para nuestros estudiantes, independientemente de la situación actual. Nuestros maestros dedicados se involucrarán con los estudiantes a través de Google Classroom, sus correos electrónicos escolares y folletos, alcanzando a TODOS nuestros estudiantes.

¡Oportunidad! Durante este tiempo, aprovecharemos la oportunidad para aprender del desafío presentado y hacer lo mejor para nuestros estudiantes. La oportunidad de convertirse en una comunidad más fuerte también se presentará ya que # SCV35 todavía está sirviendo a
nuestros estudiantes el almuerzo y participando en el lema #closednotclosed!

#Abovethebar!(Superaremos las expectativas) Como comunidad escolar, no solo cumpliremos el desafío presentado ante nosotros, sino que también superaremos las expectativas, #Abovethebar!

¡Responsable! Con cada decisión tomada, seremos responsables y haremos lo mejor para nuestros estudiantes, el personal y la comunidad escolar. Como director, me comprometo a ser responsable durante este momento crucial.

¡Extraño a nuestros estudiantes! Gracias por su continua confianza y apoyo mientras navegamos por esto.

No olvides seguirnos en Facebook, Livestream y Twitter para ver los últimos acontecimientos en el campus.

¡Su director dedicado,

¡Hawk Pride!,

Hector Estrada
