KVIE is here!
KVIE-TV out of Sacramento was on campus Monday filming our Manufacturing/Business Career Pathway classes for the program "Inside California Education".
Our Manufacturing/Business Career Pathway begins with students in elementary school and continues through courses offered at College of the Siskiyous. Skills learned in this pathway ultimately lead to jobs both in and outside of our community. For students whose interests do not lie specifically in manufacturing or business, they learn skills and ways of thinking that they can transfer to other career choices and integrate with their academic coursework . Stay tuned for broadcast dates.

Mount Shasta High School Peer Tutoring Program
Mount Shasta High School now has a peer tutoring program in place for all subject areas. If you would like your student to work with a tutor, we will match the student with a tutor who has the skills and schedule that will work for your family. Please indicate the subject areas for which you are seeking tutoring. In order to sign up, contact me by email or phone at: Randi Greenspan firstname.lastname@example.org School phone: (530) 926-2614.
This program will run for the full school year. In addition, after-school tutoring for math and other subjects will be held on Tuesday for one hour in Mrs. Greenspan's room (room 9) through October 4th. Beginning October 10th, tutoring will move to Mondays and the Tuesday after-school tutoring will no longer be offered.

Good going Bears! SAT measures student knowledge of mathematics, critical reading, and writing. The maximum possible score is 2400.
Over a quarter of the juniors and seniors at Mount Shasta High School took Advanced Placement tests last year. The Average score for Mt. Shasta students was 3.2. A score of 3 or higher can earn college credit for students. 74.7% of the students earned a score adequate for college credit, much higher than the state average in California. AP exams give high school students the chance to engage in challenging curriculum and earn college credit.

"Mt. Shasta High School Emergency Notification Page"
This page is to inform parents and students of late starts, early releases or school closures due to weather or other emergencies.
Winter Weather School Closure and Late Start Information
As we head into the winter months we'd like to remind you about our processes for school closures or late school starts. We do our best to contact parents when we know a school start is delayed due to weather as well as when we must close school early due to weather or power outages.
Our first choice is to use our updated Parent Connect autodialer. It allows us to make automated calls and automated emails to your primary phone listed in the school database and the email that is on record. We also post information on the high school web page, send a message via our Mt. Shasta High School Emergency Notification Facebook page, and notify local radio stations. Sometimes we are limited due to our own technology and power issues so we get information out as many ways as possible.
If for some reason we need to close school once school has already begun, we will make every attempt to let the public know in advance. School closures are coordinated through the district office and transportation staff; if it starts to look dangerous for bus transportation or if electricity is off for an extended period of time we officially close school.
We all know that the roads can be icy, snowy, and often dangerous during our winter season. Please take your time and get your children to school safely, you are important to all of us!
