From the Principal

Dear Soquel High School Families,

Welcome to the 2019-20 school year. It’s an exciting time at Soquel High School, and it is an honor to serve as your new principal. Soquel High is a wonderful school with deep tradition, a committed team of teachers and a dedicated support staff serving our students and community.

I am eager to connect with students and families at Soquel High School, and look forward to opportunities to interact with our community. I would like to remind our school community that multiple exciting renovation projects on our campus are ongoing. Sequential classroom modernization, along with library and administration renovation will be in progress throughout the school year, but please know that the safety and well being of our students is a top priority.

Temporary locations for our Administration, Counselors, and support staff have been established in the 100 Building along the outside corridors, and clear signage will be in place to direct students and families upon the start of school. Throughout the year, teacher/classroom locations may shift to accommodate our renovation, but please know there will be minimal interruption in our learning environment.

Transparent communication is critically important to me as I know it is to our families. Our administration, which also includes Assistant Principal Jose Quevedo and Assistant Principal Derek Kendall, has an open door policy and we are excited about serving students, staff and families. Moreover, we value our teachers and staff, and are dedicated to working together to ensure our team has a service mindset. We are committed to providing a safe and supportive learning environment for your student, and welcome your feedback and voice.

This year you can expect regular communication through our “Knight Notes”, as well as pertinent and timely information posted on our website. We are working to enhance our social media presence and you can follow us on Twitter (@SQHSKnights).  I will also conduct regular “Community Coffee” with the Principal. The first one will be held Friday, August 30th @ 9:00 a.m. in our temporary administration office. I invite you to this informal meet and greet where we can discuss the new school year.

Thank you for your partnership with Soquel High School.

Greg O’Meara
