Principal's Message

Eduardo Zaldivar, Principal
Dear Cougar Community,
Welcome back to our second semester of the 2020-21 school year!
Our students are getting a fresh start in our distance learning setting. This year has been challenging for our students, teachers and families. Building a sense of community in a virtual classroom is something we have never attempted before. Needless to say, our staff will continue to work extremely hard to create a sense of community in our current classroom setting to help kids succeed. 
Our Distance Learning Schedule will remain in place until San Bernardino County and the State of California permits high school in-person instruction to resume, pending lowered COVID-19 rates.
Please see the new schedules for the 2nd semester on our website. The schedules  allow for several objectives:
• To provide time and opportunity for students to improve their grades and progress from first semester
• To support students with effective intervention programs
It is crucial for our students to stay focused and attend school every day. We are here to support them and work with our parents and our community to help create paths that will lead to our students’ success in college and careers.
It is an honor to serve as your principal, please do not hesitate to call if you have suggestions and ideas.
Mr. Zaldivar
Princapal and Graduate of RCHS
