Students in the ROP Architecture class took a trip to the Inland Empire Transportation Management Center located near the 210 and 15 freeways on Friday. The IETMC is the home of CALTRANS and Highway Patrol communications for portions of LA County, and all of San Bernardino and Riverside Counties. It is also the place where 911 calls made from the freeways are answered. The purpose of the trip was to explore the building which is designed to withstand an 8.0 earthquake, and maintain state-wide communications using its ability to be self-sustaining with solar power and generators.

The entire building sits atop giant rubber grommets, which allow it to move laterally up to 26” while maintaining structural integrity during a large shaker.

There were 54 projects that were crowned San Bernardino County champions at the 28th annual History Day awards ceremony at Summit High School on March 11.

Among school districts, Upland Unified had the highest number of group and individual county champions with 25– all from Upland High School. The individual and group qualifiers advance to the California History Day competition in May.

The county History Day event had as its theme, “Taking a Stand in History.” There were three divisions with both individual and group competitions: Elementary (Grades 4-5), Junior (Grades 6-8) and Senior (Grades 9-12). Close to 250 students competed in the event.

History Day gives students a chance to compete in a variety of categories on a historical theme. The Elementary Division only has one category of competition, two-dimensional displays. The Junior and Senior divisions compete in exhibit, documentary, performance, website and research paper categories. Only Junior and Senior champions advance to the state competition.

The San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools and Summit High School in the Fontana Unified School District sponsored the event.

Dear Parents and Students.

 

We are now in the 2nd semester and the year will come to an end before you know it. Before you start your senior year, we want to make sure you have all of your affairs situated. As you know, as seniors, you have the privilege of going off campus (OCP) for lunch and the ability to attain a parking permit. However, these are privileges and not rights. Therefore, you must meet specific requirements to gain access to your OCP and parking permit. Now is the time to correct whatever problems there are so that when you apply, you will not be denied. To attain both the OCP and parking permit, you must:

 

-Serve assigned Saturday Schools (see schoolloop or check in Discipline Office)

-Maintain passing grades (semester grades)

-Maintain satisfactory behavior (suspensions)

-Not be chronically tardy to class (check in discipline office)

-Not be chronically absent from school (check in discipline office)

-Have all fines and checked out books cleared (check with library and student store)

 

Please take time this semester to clean up any problems you may have with the aforementioned to assure a positive and enjoyable senior year. I am looking forward to working with each of you during your last year of high school. Let’s make it the best of your four years!

 

Sincerely,

 

 

Brian Chavez

Discipline Director

Upland High School

SATURDAY SCHOOL:

 

Saturday School is conducted almost every Saturday for the purpose of making up unexcused absences, ditching, tardies and for violating minor school infractions. This method is provided as an alternative to suspension. Limits may be imposed on the number of times a student is assigned. The class is conducted from 8:00–12:00. Students must report to the front of the library (unless otherwise indicated) before 8:00 a.m., or they may not be admitted. After meeting at the library, students are escorted to a classroom for the day or remain in the library (depending on space availability). Students who do not have any work with them to complete will utilize our APEX learning tutorial module. Apex is designed to assist students in strengthening their skills in subject areas such as Math, English, Science and History. There is a pre and post test to demonstrate that the student has mastered the subject area and also be proof of positive attendance. Disruptive students will be asked to leave and will not receive credit for attendance. Failure to show for an assigned Saturday School indicates the student has opted to receive a day of suspension, which may be assigned as an in-school suspension (ISS) or an at-home suspension. Students are not allowed to leave the building during the break. Breakfast is usually served between 0930-1000 in the cafeteria.

 

All students are responsible for keeping track of their Saturday School assignments; however the Discipline Office will post them on your school loop on a recurring basis. If you are still unsure, please feel free to e-mail- Colleen Rodriguez at Colleen_Rodriguez@upland.k12.ca.us.
