Aeries to replace School Loop for grade reporting

Superintendent John Perales announced that the school will be transitioning in the coming academic year from School Loop to Aeries for grade reporting. Here is his explanation about the decision:

"Dear Students, Parents and Guardians, 
This fall, we will be moving away from using School Loop as our vendor for reporting grades electronically to an Aeries version which will do the same. Aeries is the company we use for our student information database. Using Aeries makes sense because it will interface better with our student information system. I know it will take a bit of getting use to, but I believe it will better for all involved (teachers, students and parents). Many schools use the Aeries system and are quite happy with it. I believe this will be an easier and more reliable system to use. Having said this, it is difficult for me to move away from School Loop as I was the principal at a school that was one of the first School Loop clients. Nonetheless, this is better for us as we move our high school from GOOD to GREAT!"

Fencing goes up on main campus

Two hundred feed of black, eight-foot-tall custom fencing has been added to the front of the main campus along Monterey Street, stretching from O'Donnell Gym to the administration building; the administration building to the library; and the library to the cafeteria. Gates have not yet been installed, but will be, officials say.

District seeks reimbursement for Grad Trip bus cancellation

Principal Todd Dearden on June 25 informed Class of 2015 graduates as well as parents and guardians that he and school district attorneys have written a letter to U.S. Coachways, Inc., which cancelled its contract with the district the day before grad trip, forcing the district to transport seniors to and from Disneyland on school buses. The letter requests reimbursement for the cost of that transportation and associated costs, with any money reimbursed to the district distributed to students who went on the trip. "I can't promise what will be the outcome of our communications with U.S. Coachways, but I do want to let you know that we are taking action and will keep you informed as we learn new information," Principal Dearden said.

Summer School Information

Dear Students and Parents, 
Below are two attachments sharing information regarding our Summer School Program. I know these letters were mailed home this week (if your student is registered for summer school). Some of you have shared concern regarding information - I hope this helps.


San Benito High School District is excited to offer its summer program for grade 9 - 12 at San Benito High School from June 15th to July 23rd. Classes will be held Monday through Thursday from 8:00 a.m. – 1:20 p.m. All summer school classes will be held on the main campus. The summer school office will be located in the Career Center building (RM 184) on Monterey Street.

Parents and students are encouraged to discuss summer school enrollment with their counselors, paying careful attention to graduation and college A-G requirements. The SBHS Summer School program presents an incredible opportunity for our students, whether they’re pursuing remediation, or meeting requirements to allow for an intervention course offered during the regular school year. If you have any questions about course offerings or your student’s academic plan please contact your student’s counselor.

Schedules will be passed out the morning of June 15th in the O’Donnell Gym beginning at 7a.m. The semester timeline is:

  • S1 = 1st Semester only - June 15th to July 3rd
  • S2 = 2nd Semester only - July 6th to July 23rd

I look forward to working with you and your student to provide a positive Summer School experience.  You may also email me at lchavez@sbhsd.k12.ca.us or call 637-5831 Ext. 184.




Laurie Chavez

Summer School Principal


Please read the following Frequently Asked Questions and Answers. If you have additional questions about the 2015 Summer School session please send your question via e-mail to lchavez@sbhsd.k12.ca.us.


Q: Our family is planning a trip during the Summer School session. Can our student miss more than 3 days of class?

A: No. There are no exceptions to the Summer School attendance policy. Students are only allowed 3 absences. Upon the 4th absence (or 3 absences and 1 tardy) the student will be dropped from the course. Three (3) tardies are equivalent to one (1) absence. On the tenth (10th) tardy the student will be dropped.

Q: What are the dates and times for the two Summer School sessions?

A: Session 1 runs June 15th – to July 3rd from 8:00 a.m. – 1:20 p.m.

Session 2 runs from July 6th – July 23rd from 8:00 a.m. – 1:20 p.m.

Each session meets, Monday – Thursday.

Q: Does the summer program offer library hours for study?

A: The library is available during class time only.

Q: Is it possible to check out my student before the 1:20 p.m. dismissal time?

A: Yes, however attendance is taken hourly, so leaving early could affect a student’s attendance record.

Q: How do I get in touch with my summer school teacher to check on the status of my student?

A: All students will receive a course syllabus on the very first day of class. This syllabus will contain teacher contact information.

Q: Will the cafeteria be opened during summer school?

A: Yes, the cafeteria will be opened along with the snack bar and several food carts located around main campus.

Q:  Where can my student pick up his/her schedule?

A:  Students will be able to pick up their schedule in the O’Donnell Gym on June 15th.  Students can begin picking up the schedule at 7am.

Air-conditioning and modernization are moving forward! Things are moving and happening and that makes me happy! Our students and staff are going to love their new classrooms! Go Balers!
