PioneerGram 4/18/21
Posted 4/19/21

Greetings Pioneer Families,


I hope all of you have had a fantastic weekend! TOMORROW, April 19th, is FINALS DAY for periods 3 and 4. Cohorts A & B for period 3 will all meet virtually with their teachers for finals at 9 am, and Cohorts A & B for period 4 will all meet virtually with their teachers for finals at 12:55 pm. This means we will not have any students on campus tomorrow, as everyone will be taking their finals virtually.


This Tuesday is the first day of period 5, and Wednesday is the first day of period 6. All students should check their schedule in Aeries Monday night to make sure their classes and cohorts are correct. Students, as we start the new session, take the opportunity to connect and engage with your teachers for the final session of the year.


Seniors, you should have received an email from Mr. Kiunke on Friday that has more details about senior activities, a video link explaining the activities, and a Google form for you to RSVP to all of the events. Seniors need to RSVP for all events by Friday, April 30th! Make sure you read the PioneerGram as well to get your cap and gown ordered and to fill out information for your Senior Shout Out!


As students have returned to campus, everyone needs to be careful and courteous when dropping off students, picking them up, and driving in our parking lots at any time during the day. Please note that cars should enter the West Lot through the westernmost driveway (closer to the bowling alley), and after following the one-direction only u-shaped path through the parking lot, everyone should exit using the easternmost driveway (closer to the main office). Cars should never exit the westernmost driveway. Please slow down, be mindful of pedestrians, and look out for other cars. I have included a traffic flow map for the West Lot in the PioneerGram. Thank you.


Families, regarding sporting events...private GoFan links for tickets will be emailed to each student athlete's school email address, and should not be shared with other students who want to watch the games in person. If we find that people are attending and they are not immediate family members we reserve the right to ask those attendees to leave the game, and tickets will not be refunded. Also, everyone attending must wear a mask, over the mouth and nose, with no exceptions. We reserve the right to ask spectators to leave, without a refund, if masks are not worn properly the whole time. Finally, only water is allowed at sporting events, no other food or beverages are permitted to be brought in to our athletic contests. Thank you.


Please make sure to read the entire PioneerGram, as we have information on the NHS canned food drive, a fundraiser for our Sophomore Class, a fundraiser for our Junior Class, our schedule this week, tutoring, joining choir for the 2021-2022 school year, College and Career Center updates, college webinars for all grades, joining the Red Cross Club, the SVHS Virtual Student Art Gallery, the Simi Valley Youth Council Multicultural Festival, joining the student EcoAction Club, meeting with counselors, athletics, work permits, and so much more! Thank you, and have a great evening!
