WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year. We are excited to welcome back all of our students to another great year. Please remember that traffic at the beginning of the school year tends to be heavier than later in the year. Plan on leaving early and arriving to school well before the first bell. Throughout the school year students with first period should plan on arriving at school by 7:30 am. For the first day of school you should plan for a drop-off between 7:00-7:15 am. The drop-off zones are in the main lot off Knott St and the designated drop-off lane (middle lane) at the front of the school off Lampson. Due to our modernization/construction, there is no entry into the main lot off Lampson.

GGUSD and Pacifica High School Strongly Condemn Offensive Video

Garden Grove Unified School District and Pacifica High School strongly condemn a video recorded last year of some students who engaged in offensive Nazi-related gestures. The video was filmed in November 2018 prior to the start of an after school hours, off-campus student athletics banquet in an empty and unsupervised room at the facility. The video was shared within a small group of students on SnapChat. It was not brought to the attention of the administration of Pacifica High School until March of 2019, four months following the banquet, at which time school administrators took immediate action and addressed the situation with all students and families involved. Federal law (Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act) prohibits the district from disclosing details of student discipline.

In response to this unfortunate incident, district and school administrators have reached out to community organizations to provide support that will continue to ensure an anti-bias learning environment and address issues of hate, bias, and exclusion with all staff and students. Pacifica High School, along with our other district schools, will be working with students, staff, and parents to continue to address these issues in the fall in collaboration with agencies dedicated to anti-bias education.

A highly diverse district, Garden Grove Unified School District actively combats bias and bullying, remains focused on fostering an inclusive environment for all stakeholders and is committed to holding students accountable, educating them on the consequences of their choices and the impact these actions have on our schools and community at large. In 2017, the district passed Resolution 20, an ongoing commitment to safe and welcoming schools, and in the new school year the district will be launching a campaign for student, staff, and community wellness. As a part of the “Choose Wellness” campaign, students, staff, and parents from across the district will come together to address issues of well-being and a welcoming climate, including addressing bullying, hate speech/actions, and our role in building inclusive communities which reflect equity and respect for all.
