Our hearts go out to the school community in Parkland, Florida that was victimized by gun violence earlier this month. Shasta’s administrative team has been meeting to review safety needs and processes and we have coordinated, campus-wide emergency response protocols. In the aftermath of the tragedy in Florida, we are reviewing our protocols to ensure our safety plan is comprehensive and well-communicated. We will be holding an additional lockdown drill in the coming week to ensure all students and faculty are knowledgeable about our safety practices.
Study Trips – We Need Drivers!
Every year, our students look forward to the Study Trips that give them an opportunity explore colleges around California, build community with their classmates, and have fun! These trips are made possible by parent drivers who donate their time to drive students. We are still looking for drivers for our 9th, 10th, and 11th grade trips. If you are able to drive, please reach out to your grade level teacher and parent leads, listed below. If we cannot secure enough drivers, we may have to cancel or adjust the trips.
- 9th Grade: Gene Lee (email@example.com) and Karen Clark (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- 10th Grade: Hillary Odom (email@example.com) and Caroline Hum (BiggHoggee@comcast.net)

Collecting Donations for Pat’s Closet
The coat drive for Pat’s Closet that we conducted in December was such a success that we would like to do a spring drive! However, instead of coats, this time the urgent need is toiletries. Here is what they are looking for:
- Shampoo, soap, deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrushes, floss, moist towelettes, lotions, travel kleenex, etc.
- Hotel sizes appreciated as well.
This donation will go to the homeless and those in need of emergency housing.
There will be a box available for the donations in the Shasta office from Monday March 12th through Thursday March 15th.
Please contact Lucricia Delgado at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. Thank you for helping Summit Shasta reach out to our local community!
