Principal’s Message

Good morning Del Mar Family,
    I wanted to encourage everyone to attend our PTSA Del Mar family night this evening from 5:30pm-8:30pm. I have attached the flyers that have gone out.  The event will take place in the back parking lot and is open to the community.  Please come by and enjoy some live music, amazing food and participate in the silent auction.  This is PTSA’s biggest fundraiser of the year, so come by and join us.  

   One last reminder, with prom season coming up, please make sure to take care of your tardy detentions.  Any student with 8 or more tardy detentions that have not been served will not be allowed to attend the prom.  You can check your attendance in Aeries or meet with your AP. In addition, we would like to remind all attendees that the CDPH strongly recommends that all persons wear masks while indoors. Although dinner will take place outside, the dancing will be inside. Please keep this in mind. Graduation is just around the corner, and we don't want anyone to miss out.

Have a great weekend!
Larry Lopez

 2022 IB Senior Scholarship Application

Around The Campus
COVID Tracking
 The health and safety of our students and staff are our top priority, and we want our community to be informed. This week, our campus had confirmed 9 COVID-19 exposure. Each case of COVID-19 on our campus is thoroughly investigated to identify close contacts quickly and stop any further exposure.
The affected individual(s) were directed by the Public Health Department to isolate and their immediate family/household members and all identified close contacts have been contacted by school staff and directed to follow the CDPH quarantine recommendations for schools, monitor for COVID-19 symptoms, and comply with the recommended interventions.
Please continue to monitor your students for symptoms and keep them home if they are sick. Please contact your healthcare provider if they develop symptoms or if you have any additional questions or concerns. For more information on CUHSD's COVID-19 Plan and Response please click here.

Update: Course Requests for 2022-2023
They’re finally here: the course requests for 2022-2023! If you haven’t done so already, please take a few moments to review your student’s course requests with them. In her recent post, AP Diana Nguyen included instructions on accessing your student’s course requests through the Aeries Parent/Student portal. Please click on any of the links below to view the original post and the list of actions requested of you: If you have any questions about your student’s course requests, please contact your student’s guidance counselor or case manager before Friday May 13, 2022.
Do you have children or teens that are struggling with negative emotions or are having trouble listening and responding to your support or requests? If so, this presentation will benefit you.......
Pacific Clinics is proud to offer a two-part workshop based on the evidence-based program from the Child Care Project at Cornell University.  Therapeutic Crisis Intervention for Caregivers was developed to help support caregivers in understanding and navigating the challenges of our children.  This training is designed for families interested in learning how to respond to behaviors through the lens of "what happened to you? Rather than "what's wrong with you" and avoid reacting to behaviors or engaging in power struggles.  This two-part workshop will:

Workshop 1- (May 17th) 5:30pm-7:00pm
  • Help families explore the impact of traumatic life experiences on children
  • Discuss the importance of self-awareness
  • Understand how the brain works when stressed/dysregulated
  • Practice the skill of Active Listening
Workshop 2 – (May 24th) 5:30pm-7:00pm (zoom link provided later)
  • Introduce the Stress Model of Crisis to understand behavioral challenges
  • Explore some of the techniques that are helpful in avoiding escalation or de-escalating a young person if they are already highly stressed or dysregulated
  • Discover the dynamics of power struggles and how to avoid them
  • Help young people develop their own coping strategies to difficult behaviors through a step-by-step verbal process guided by the adult (parent/caregiver)
